No Longer Loved Thrift Store Veil Adopted

Last night at Belly Dance class (yes I Belly Dance) another dancer brought in a bunch of veils she doesn't use.  Susan is a fun lady to dance with, hang out with & she's a wonderful thrift store shopper.  MOST of her performance costumes, performance jewelry & practice attire she was able to get at thrift stores.  I think she goes to a different Value Village than me a magic one where all the ethnic clothing ends  I have been lucky in finding two veils at Value Village, but nothing like this BEAUTY
that I scored last night.  The picture doesn't do this veil justice the blue is much brighter & the copper/gold embroidery much more sparkly.  I felt bad for this veil it must have gotten separated from the rest of the pretty lenga or suit it originally was part of to have ended up at Value Village to begin with.  I'm lucky Susan saved it, but then it just sat in her closet poor veil.  However I'm happy that this pretty found it's way to me, & for the price of $4 I couldn't say no.  The class I'm taking right now is a veil class & the dance we are learning is perfect for showing off this beautiful veil.  Can't wait to enjoy many more hours dancing with this stunning veil.

I have been taking belly dance classes off and on for about 4 years now and love it! I am especially interested in tribal belly dance. Only taken one veil class, and I had 7 yards of red chiffon that became my veil. Now, to brave wearing a costume rather than my yoga pants and t shirt...
