I’ve got four words for you. This. Dress. You. Guys.
Loved the pink and white striping, but just wasn’t as into the shape or style.
It was straight 90s, yo! It was also a maternity dress, once I looked at the label. I thought a little tweaking could come to fruition to make this the perfect dress to wear during the September heat wave of Los Angeles.
I mean it’s just waiting for some TLC. TLC, I’m a-coming for you!
I was working in Orange County last month with I Love to Create and Joann’s getting my tie dye on with shoppers, and I stopped at a sample sale on the way home.
First thing’s first. I LOVE myself a sample sale. It’s the one place where you can get your hands on more expensive branded gear for wayyyyyyy less than retail. This sale was at the Dainty Hooligan warehouse in Anaheim and I took advantage of the $1 bin that housed a ton of “damaged” items! I’m going to show you all the pieces I scored for a buck this week that I transformed into new, non-“damaged” items that look like they came right off the rack!
First piece I scored, this fab romper:
I couldn’t find the exact one on the site, however I found something similar for $42.50.
So, I’d say I got a steal! But, the downside was that there were spots EVERYWHERE!
There’s a spot…
…and there’s a spot…
…and there’s another few spots!!
So, what do you do when you’re stuck with a slew of spots on an ivory romper???
You know what to do. When in doubt, DYE IT OUT!

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.
Here’s a little teaser of an easy and adorable tutorial coming later tonight that involve two very special words. POM POMS.
Eeeeee! I can’t wait to show you how SIMPLE my new summer staple is.
So this floral print though…
Honestly I think I wore something like this when I was a kid in 1992!
The colors were so fun and summery feeling. I can’t get enough of these “rainbow sherbet” colors! (PS, who else is a rainbow sherbet fan? I swear I dream about the Baskin Robbins variety at least twice a week!)
The thumbs up was me giving myself motivation that this was going to turn out AWESOME!
However, those layered pleats at the bottom just might have to say goodbye…
Hello friends! I hope everyone had a most beautiful weekend!
I took a solo trip up to Santa Barbara for the day to bike on the beach, hang out at Alameda Park for Earth Day festivities, and to go flea marketing. You can see below what I snagged…
Hey, crosstitched horses!! Yeah it was one of those “I know this is totally kitschy, but I think I need it in my office” moments. So…I snagged it for a few bucks. What do you guys think? Was I totally crazy for buying this?
Also, you’ll see the after product of this beaut tomorrow.
The 90s called…and they DON’T want this dress back
