found an edwardian tunic with the cutest giraffe print at goodwill today.  still has tags on it.  yup, brand NEW.  this is also how i knew to call it an “edwardian tunic.”  cuz the tag said so.  i’d never just say “edwardian tunic.”  i’d say “silk top with ruffles.”  so i googled it just to see what was what.  it’s a geren ford.  i positively LOVE when i find stuff i would NEVER  buy (ok, COULD never buy) at a boutique, only to find it at goodwill for $3.50.  (it was $6.99, but it had the “white” tag and white tags were half off this week.  *smiley face*)  this pic doesn’t do much for the top.  but trust.  pretty.  darn.  cute.  and edwardian.  will not be wearing this any time soon however, with these frosty temps.  i nearly got hypothermia just trying it on in the fitting room.  brrrr.dscf0313
