In my vintage hunting/shopping/procuring adventures, I’ve come across the same garment twice which always blows my mind.
Never has it blown my mind more than this moment when I found myself wearing the same dress as Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) on the first episode of the final season of Mad Men.
STOP. IT. RIGHT. NOW.
Hello identical dresses!! (PS, we’re both copywriters too…)
She belted it…
I did not…
If we really worked together we would have shot our side by side shot for our office’s Instagram feed.
Felt like this deserved a full post…I still can’t get over it!
Mad Men just returned for its last season, so I got together with a bunch of pals for a little viewing party! When getting together to watch Mad Men, one must always dress up
I found this chain-esque printed dress at Goodwill…
…and thought it could be perfect to wear.
Hike the skirt and made it a bit more mod? I think it’s going to be just the thing!
I’ve been working on a longer post to recap my little trip to Austin for Texas Style Council (it’s coming tonight along with a fab goodie bag giveaway filled with lots of the stuff I got to take home with me!) but wanted to share a little snippet of the awesome few days I got to enjoy back at the camp setting that the conference took place at.
When there’s a lack of outlets, you have to DIY everything!!
This teepee had tables and chairs inside – outdoor dining space with twinkle lights? Totally dreamy.
There were amazing new friends and readers I met all while dressed up like Phyllis Nefler.
Troop Beverly Hills was my fave and a costume party where everyone dresses up like Girl Scouts, is going to be super chic night
My gal Melissa at Shoestring Magazine brought a ton of options from Austin Goodwill, so I had to capture her khaki haul. Less than $40 for everything? Total score.
More posting from Texas coming later today with a swag bag up for grabs Woo!!
Hey friends! I’ve been in Texas (woo, Longhorns!) the past week for an amazing blogging conference and am back in action. Before I give a total rundown tomorrow, I wanted to post the second way I styled this fab shirt.
Remember the before…
The size was wrong, seams were undone, and the sleeves were too big because the elastic was worn out.
But, that pattern was good. SO good!
Cute and casual now, right?
So, lets see how this works dressed up a bit more…
Today is the holiday of my people (shout out to all my Irish friends out there!! Virtual Guinness cheers!!) so I wanted to repost this fave DIY from last year.
Because my Valentine’s Day shoe clips were such a hit (quick refresher HERE)…
…I figured that a St. Patty’s Day version was just calling my name.
Here’s how to make them!
