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
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!
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…
When you find a red velour nightgown on your thrifting adventures, you immediately think, “this is something 6-year-old me wore.”
Seriously, this could be the adult version of my Christmas Eve jammy-jams.
I feel like it’s my upcycling duty to make this piece work.
Because, there’s lots of potential here.
Non-nightgown-y potential here, ya know?
