Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Something old:
an engraved wooden box/purse thing I found in my basement. I'm actually not sure how old it is, but I can safely say that I do not know where it came from, whatsoever. But it sure is neat looking!Something new:
a pair of bright yellow high-waisted hot pants I found in the Urban Outfitters sale section yesterday for only $20. They are one of my new favourite items.
Something borrowed:
not necessarily "borrowed" but rather taken from my high school costume department when I was cleaning it out and preparing for my role as costume head for our grade 12 play. Unfortunately, when I graduated, I dumped all my locker contents into the basement, never to be heard from again. Fortunately, as I was rummaging, I managed to unearth them again. A lovely lightweight gray cardigan from Old Navy circa 1994....

... and a tan coloured Members Only jacket, a once thrifted item left over from when we performed West Side Story. A Jet's jacket of course. Jets are the best.
Something blue:
well, something with blue in it. Another great find from the Urban Outfitters sale section, a little cartoon David Bowie shirt for a mere $10. It was just too cute to pass up!

Also, I've been tagged by the lovely Miby.

5 things found in my purse:
1. my cellular telephone
2. my wallet that looks like a letter from the mail
3. my Rayban sunnies
4. Burt's Bees lip balm, for those dry days
5. a shammy to clean smudges off my glasses

5 things found in my wallet:
1. my debit card aka: the love of my life
2. my student ID card
3. bus fare (on occasion)
4. tips from work

5 favourite things in my room:
1. my bed (pretty sheets included)
2. all my Beatles paraphernalia (believe me, there are lots)
3. my pink walls
4. the chandelier hung in the corner
