Thrifted H&M dress, vintage belt, and Aldo Smeal studded sandals.

So, being the forgetful being that I am, I forgot to take my camera to work with me. I had fully intended on bringing it this morning. So crappy camera photos will have to do.
I don't really have anything deep to say today, just kind of a crazy story about this dress.
A year ago (maybe less than that) I saw this dress on sale at H&M (before H&M vacated this area) and was going to buy it, but they didn't have my size. About a month ago, I was at Salvation Army looking around and saw this dress! I immediately remembered it and found out it was my size. It's just crazy luck.
So now it sits happily in my closet with the rest of my dresses.

I hope you have a great weekend. Check out my latest video for another outfit I wore this week:

girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Vintage 60's mini-dress, gladiator sandals from Marshall's (they're 5 years old now!), eBay sunglasses, and Prada bag from Panache Consignment.

Summertime is truly the best time for getting dressed in my opinion. I can fill my closet with a ridiculous amount of dresses and truly not worry about what I'm going to wear. I get can get up in the morning, choose from one of them and have an entire outfit in seconds. Dresses are perfect for that. They are their own little microcosm of an outfit.

P.S. This has truly been the summer of the white accessory for me. I have never indulged in any white purses, sunglasses, etc. It started with this white Prada purse and it snowballed (ha, I'm so punny) from there.

Hope you're enjoying the summer. I'm already thinking about fall with episode 2 of Fantasy to Fashion:

Vintage 60's dress from Germany, thrifted leather flats, and Prada Purse from Panache Consignment.

This is the last time I'll disappear on you for two weeks, I promise. The first weekend in August was the Park Avenue Festival here in Rochester, NY. My shop had a booth and things were super-busy. Afterward I just needed a break from blogging, YouTube, and anything that required effort in my personal time.
Sometimes you really realize what you miss when you cease and desist everything in your life. It's safe to say I won't be quitting blogging permanently anytime soon. After 3 1/2 years of chronicling my life through my outfits, it has become a part of who I am. Sometimes I feel like what I write is so boring; thanks for sticking around and reading. That's just a bonus. In the end I'm just grateful I've found a hobby I'm so passionate about. That's more than some people can say.
Live life.
Find passions.
Do it, repeat, die happy.

Also if you're a nerd (or a nerd still in the closet) check out my new video. I combine my love of anime (yeah, it's okay to roll your eyes), video games, etc. with fashion.
