I thought I looked really cute today. It's was our school's "moving up" ceremony where the kids and teachers get all dressed up and the teachers make speeches and give awards. Anyway, I wear a dress just about everyday and the only special thing about this dress is that it was "new;" and by new I mean, the kids had never seen me wear it as it is used ($4 from Salvo).
When we got home from work, I quickly interrupted my husband while he was killing ants in the backyard and asked him to take pics of me. Light is bad and his patience (err...I mean skills) may need to be taken into consideration.
I love the dress as it looks 40s but is from the 70s. The scalloped petal collar and sleeves are so cute. Plus the simple pearl buttons. The only downside is that it's polyester and a couple of the polka dots are wearing off -- hence the faint blurry spots.
The t-straps are my favorite shoes that I searched for high and low. They are the inspiration for this blogpost. I wear them at least 3 days a week.
The bracelet is one I "re-found" today in my jewelry box. I don't think I've worn it in year, but it looks so sweet. Hooray for the re-found.
Now this is where I will briefly mention that I have gained weight and am in the process of losing it. I don't plan to catalog much about this in the blog, but let's just say I hope to do more outfit posts but not until I feel better about the way I look.
Lastly, the purse is a prop. It's a new listing in the shop!
