Sea of Dresses

 Allo Ladies!
I couldn't stay away long especially when it's Patti's Visible Monday
Nobody in her right  mind will miss that day!
Ok, yes I had a kind of I felt sorry for myself last week but I'm lucky that I have such nice people around me that care  -
Enough lets have some fun now!
I lucked in  a couple of weeks ago and was surprisingly was immersed in one of my favorite thrift shop in a sea of Desigual dresses and tops  for a ridiculous amount of money!
 We are talking major score!

Desigual Dress - $10

Another dress for $10

Desigual Top $7- Isn't out of this friggin world!

Desigual short dress  - $10
Here are some of the original prices
I got 3 dresses, 1 top
Total price - $37!
Now that we made our wallet happy why not make our waist line happy?
I discovered an healthy alternative to chips or crisps for my UK friends
Kale chips - Tested and approved by Mr. D
When a guy likes it you can be sure it's good!
Keep the leaves, mix with olive oil, rice bran oil or raisins seeds oil, bit of sea salt, or other spices
I tried it with a bit of Mozzarella, delicious
Cook at 300F until the the edge of the leaves are kind of golden brown
Kale are low fat and full of proteins

Sue, Kelly, Melanie, ShelleySacramento and Paula
Tks again my friends

I will see you soon!

I will be at Monday Mingle as well!

Major score, for certain! I have always liked Desigual designs and you picked up some beauties. The kale looks yummy too. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, my gorgeous friend. xo

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Glad things are looking up! Major score - and these colours are gorgeous on you!

I am seriously jealous of these finds. I LOVE that brand and their colourful artsy style. Suits you to a tee.

The hot pink is such a fun accent! GREAT dress too.

Connie said...

Wow! Major score! You look terrif in your pink tights. We've been making kale chips, too. Yummy. Also Brussels sprout leaves chips. Same recipe. Just use the peeled off leaves of the sprouts. Aren't we healthy!!

Aya in Couturgatory said...

I hope you are doing better, Ariane!

That last short dress is utterly gorgeous! I cannot wait to see it modeled by you.

Melanie said...

Wow, no wonder there are not thrifting gods out in Vancouver with me at the moment, they've all been partying with you in Montreal! Is that for real, all those Desigual dresses and tops? It's a message from the universe. You look incredible. My glasses arrive tomorrow. I'm excited but nervous to see if they'll look like coke bottles :) .

The Dainty Dolls House said...

Amazing as always doll, good to have you back :)) Love all the pink and those shoes are awesome!! I hope you have a gorgeous week xx

Sandra said...

gorgeous! pink brilliance and awesome dresses, can't wait to see you in the others too! I haven't tried kale, I do like crispy greens, I roast my sprouts whole, yum! x x x

Forest City Fashionista said...

What a crazy amazing thrifting score - I like some of Desigual's designs but the price has always put me off, but to get them for $10 is incredible. As Melanie says, the Thrifting Gods were obviously with you! I love the Missoni-look dress with the pink t-shirt underneath.

Your smile IS the best accessory - glad to see it back!

Kelly Jackson said...

Quelle score, Ariane! That is a brand I see people wearing in Annecy a lot. Very fun and colorful, like you! I have never tried those chips but I have heard of them. Apparently, it's the crunch (well, ok, and the salt) that people love about chips. But I'm not sure I could do green chips. We're losing weight by not eating meat - don't miss it at all and we still drink wine and eat chocolate, hehe. Xoxo

Vix said...

Fabulous to see you back and looking gorgeous in menopausal pink!
I don't know that make but it reminds me a bit of Custo, Barcelona, a groovy label I could never afford in the 1990s!
Not sure I'd fancy that Kale - nothing beats potato chips with loads of ketchup! xxx

pastcaring said...

I've been busy since Friday and haven't checked in, so I missed your last post. Sorry you've been having a hard time, I hope you are feeling better now. Scoring great pieces at the thrift shop will certainly help, what gorgeous dresses and tops! xxxx

The Goodwill Fangirl said...

The second Desigual dress had me at the bicycle. Can't wait to see you wearing it!

thorne garnet said...

never heard for that brand, but those dresses rock

S.D.C. said...

I love all the color these have....great finds!

PinkCheetahVintage said...

Thrifting awesome finds always make me feel good :) Fuuuun stuff!

Tamera Wolfe said...

Wow Ariane!! Yopu made some major scores there!! I love everything!!

Kale chips are fabulous!! TRy them with a sprinkle of garlic or onion powder--YUM

sabine said...

Lucky you Ariane!
Finding a sea of so marvellous dresses. They are bursting with color and joy! My favorite is the second, the one with the lady having her hands up.
I'm glad you are back again. Take your hands up too and have fun my dear.
Hugs from Sabine

Beata B said...

Gorgeous dress, what a wonderful pattern! It works perfectly with the candy pink :) bea
utiful! Xxxx

Val Sparkle said...

Oh my god! I would love to have a Desigual dress or shirt, and you got all those for $37!!!! You are one lucky lady. Those designs are so pretty, and I know you'll have just the right clothes to wear with them, so I'm trying not to be jealous. :/

The kale chips sound like a great idea. I think I saw something similar on Junior Master Chef. Yum.

Paula Ruta said...

Just adorable! so glad you're BACK! xoxo

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

YEAH!!! This is the perfect come back outfit my dear! You are pretty in pink, and your joie de vivre is shining bright! We love you!!! xoxoxo

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

I also intended to comment about how your engagement ring has a magical sparkle to it! Woo Woot!

I make kale chips sometimes too!

Imogen said...

This is an amazing outfit and I love it. It combines two of my favourite elements- bright dresses and pink! Layering with the pink is a genius idea.

Milex said...

I love the details

pao said...

Those dresses are killah and for such a price too. I want some too. The green stuff, not so much.

Rachel said...

Pink! My favourite colour and it looks gorgeous on you. Your lovely smile really brightens my day too. Hope you are well xxxx

Mrs. D said...

Great finds! Desigual pieces are usually so pricey!

Beckerman Girls said...

That dress is soooo major! LOVE LOVE LOVE! And that salad looks sooo crunchy and yummy! Happy and healthy holidays babe!

You are totally in the pink and the Desigual pieces are amazing. And I love the sounds of the kale chip recipe. I'm going to give it a try!
