Jumpsuit Party!

You guys. I scored the most amazingly ridiculous vintage jumpsuit that is in the process of getting adjusted as well as a shade change. Color thoughts?

Well hello jumpsuit!

I couldn’t decide, so I started on another DIY to tide me over in the interim that involved a little tie dyeing! I can’t wait to show you this project :)

I’ve been obsessed with Pom Pom shorts since I saw them in Bali last year and now I’m seeing pairs pop up everywhere! So, why not DIY a set to rock this summer? (PS, it’s so easy!)

I’ve been seeing a slew of different styles online, with all different price points, but the DIY pair I’m going to show you is only going to cost around $5. Seriously.

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! I was in San Diego for Father’s Day and couldn’t resist pulling up a little archived Kodak shot of me and my dad.

Hi you guys!! Today’s piece is SO good. The dress looked like it was straight out of a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.

I went straight into musical theater mode and gave my best “I’m getting the vapors” look.

I do declare!

But, look at those SLEEVES!

No. Words.

This piece needed some serious help to turn it into something that you don’t need to be on a stage to wear!

Before we start, I saw this lovely little tag inside the piece – love when there are little hints of who wore this before me!

We’ve got the same first initial!

If I only had time to tag my clothes too…

Hey friends! I’m here, I’m here :) There’s been a lot going on which I’ll fill you in a bit on later… But in the interim, I have a FABULOUS new piece to share.

Pre-dye!

I scored it at a swap party for nada, but it was originally $25 from Forever 21. So, for a chic cocktail dress, it’s really quite budget friendly.

$25!

And I loved the look, but just wasn’t that into the color. My skin is SO fair and as a short dress, this color wasn’t doing it for me like I wanted it to.

So, now comes the change. New color, check!!
