Jewelry, too!

Don’t forget to shop our accessories patio (just past thebwke sale) for beautiful scarves, shoes, and jewelry! This section is especially great and not to be missed, and we’ve made some changes this year that will hopefully make it more user-friendly. Check it out!

Halloween needs?

Who ya gonna call for all your costume requirements? Cupcakes and Muffintops, of course!

Ghostbusters jumpsuit (by Dickies) with reflective tape – 4x.

Lunches want to sparkle too!

7 Aug

Why should your lunch be anything but luxe? Teal and silver flip sequin insulated lunchbox (yes, you read that correctly) will make you the hit of the noontime rush. And not to create a total elbow-throwing fervor, but this could easily be converted into an adjustable-waist fanny pack with the addition of a sturdier buckle!

Loungin’ Around

7 Aug

Here in Muffintopia, beautiful lingerie practically grows on trees! Our lounge section, located in the dressing room of the sale, is a smorgasbord of soft, sequins, and sexy. Swimwear, too! Here are just a few examples of what you might find! (Note: all underpants are new or like new.)

These three matching bra and panty sets came in a few months ago, and they’re adorable! Most are in the 2x range.

Left: True vintage disco dress with asymmetrical sequin panel. Like most vintage clothing, may need a little TLC to deal with minor spots. The photo doesn’t do it justice; this is one of those items in the sale we’re so excited to see on its future owner! Size 2-3x.

Right: Stretch velvet and mesh pinstripe jumpsuit with significant sheer panels. Because why not??? Tags on from Forever 21- 0x.

Below: Stunning Size Queen bustle skirt with open front and full, layered back. Must be seen to be believed! 5x.

Sweet and stripey
