Around the World Postcards (DIY)

Recently, I read Around the World in Eighty Days, a classic novel written by Jules Verne.  It left me with the overwhelming desire to hop on a train or ship and travel the world like the wealthy Mr. Fogg.  Since I can't exactly do that, I have to settle for seeing all of the interesting places close to home.

So here's my first Thrift Store Friday post: 25 outfits made from 9 pieces.
