Happy Friday friends! I have several cute li'l vintage purses hiding in the depths of my closet - I'm trying to remember to pull them out and use them! This one I found as a kid in an antique store (my mom and I did lots of antique-ing when I was young) and loved the gold brocade and rhinestone clasp. I'm pretty sure my mom thought it was a bit sad - dirtied at the corners and stained. But you know, a kid doesn't see that; I just saw the shininess! She prefers the tapestry, mesh, and beaded bags and has a nice collection at home (one of my favorites is a tiny sterling silver mesh purse from the 1800s). Anyways, I've linked several cute ones on eBay if you want to check them out!

And lastly, thank you soo much for stopping by today! Your visits to The Dapper Bun are what makes this blog special.

I am always on the hunt for skirts at goodwill that I can hem. Haven't lucked out yet, but I keep trying! Would love to score a red one like the one you found in your other post!

Your polka dot blouse is adorable! Love how you did pattern mixing with the skirt! Lately I've been buying vintage clutches on Etsy, so many on there :) Have a great weekend, Mary Ann!

What a cute idea to tie that matching ribbon/belt around your waist. It looks great, Mary Ann!

First off, you rock a bold lipstick better than anyone.

Second, love the Chanel nail color...I might need to seek that one out.

Third, how sad about the 7 y.o. boy in your class! His gerbil died? That is so sad. I'm sure you handled it with grace though...allowing him to sit (and not forcing him to dance) is really the only option you could have as I'm sure you had tons of other kids in the room! Poor little guy :-(

TGIF huh?! :-)

Mary Ann! What a gorgeous outfit! And that clutch is perfect with the shoes! I have a lot of thrifted things that I LOVE but probably look a little shabby in other people's eyes. But I think that's what makes an item so special - all the flaws give it character!
