Thrifted French Connection dress, vintage necklace and Betsey Johnson platforms.

I can't believe it's been over a week since I've posted. I've been sick and feeling pretty gross. These photos were from last week.  I waited for a balmy enough day to wear this amazing dress. I still can't believe I found a French Connection dress for $10! A twirly skirt and vintage style bodice is perfect for me. The back is pretty fun too.

Well, I'm still pretty sick, so I'm going to take care of myself so I can get back in action!

Thrifted Only dress, years old leather belt, gifted sunglasses and Betsey Johnson pumps.

I knew I needed to buy this dress as soon as I saw it hanging on the racks. The fact that it fit me perfectly only solidified the fact that I was going to buy it and wear it a million times. This was my first spin in it and I'm already addicted. I love the stripes, the shape, the skirt, and everything else about it. Even though it has crazy stripes, it's so versatile. I can wear it alone in the warmer months and layer it for cooler months. If you don't have a dress like that in your closet, I suggest you invest in one! It will make life a lot more fun.

I have to give a big thank you to Brian's sweet mom who got me these awesome sunglasses. They're perfect for me. I've had them a little over a week and have worn them a bunch of times already. Red sunglasses are perfect for summer!

I hope you're having a wonderful week!

something new

Hi all! I just wanted to let you know that I'm starting a YouTube channel. Here is my intro video. I hope all of you who read this (if there are any of you) enjoy my videos. Of course I'll still be updating my blog - I could never stop! I love it too much.

round and round and up and down we go again

Thrifted chambray dress, vintage silk scarf, and thrifted leather flats.

Warmer weather always makes getting dressed a million times more fun. I can throw on one of my comfy dresses and dress the outfit down with flats or up with heels. For this look I went for a comfortable, casual, and fun look. I love this dress; it's got such a vintage flair to it. The chambray gives it a touch of the present. I almost went out the door without the scarf, but when I saw it hanging all lonely in the closet I put it on. Very unintentionally patriotic - red white and blue is perfect for the spring/summer.
The last thing I want to talk about are these flats. I've never owned a white pair and bought these at Salvation Army on a whim. I've been missing out - white flats go with everything! I've been wearing them non-stop since March. They especially look good with white and blue. If you don't have a pair, you should. I never thought I needed them, but I was wrong!

I hope you had a great start to your week. Monday is my Sunday, so I'm back to work tomorrow.

in the high school halls, in the shopping malls, conform or be cast out

Charlotte Russe dress, eBay sunglasses, Kathy Van Zeeland bag, and vintage Chanel flats.

I can't believe it's been a week since I posted on here last! I've been dying to blog, but I was busy because MY NEW SHOP IS OPEN! I'm so excited about it and I love dressing up for work.
I wore this little leopard dress on my second full day at the shop. I'm obsessed with the neon piping and unique neckline.
When I used to work at Charlotte Russe I bought a lot of clothes there. When I left, I stopped shopping there because they raised their prices significantly. During my annual after-Christmas shopping binge I poked my head in again. I found this snazzy dress for $10 and a few other great things. I was happy to see their prices back down for some great clearance bargains (I'm cheap like that).

I certainly enjoyed the beautiful stretch of weather we just had. I got to wear a bunch of my dresses, climbed a flowering tree, and just was my all-around weird self. Hope you're having a wonderful week!

the soles of your shoes were all worn down

Thrifted Target dress worn as a shirt, H&M skirt, Kathy Van Zeeland bag, and Miu Miu SS2010 clogs.

This skirt is another piece I picked up from the "going out of business sale" back in January. As soon as it hit 70 degrees, I knew it would be the first thing I wore.
I don't have a lot of white lace in my closet and after wearing this, I know I want more. Sometimes you just have to wear something that's over the top girly when it's warm (guys I'm looking at you too).

I have a confession to make: I fully intended on wearing these clogs all day but I had to take them off. The reason I haven't been wearing heels a lot lately is because I have nasty shin splints. They are really painful and I'm missing wearing heels! I can't wait until they feel better - I won't be able to take my high heels off.

Well, it's late and I hope you're getting some good sleep. I'm going to waste the next hour on YouTube.

P.S. It's bittersweet to say that this will be the last time I'm at my favorite photo spot. It's in Honeoye Falls and I'm finally all moved out and about to open on Park Ave!
