Shoes? Aldo (men's), thrifted
The rest? Thrifted
4 posts in 5 days? I'm impressed... are you?
These pictures look...fake? I had to tweak the colours a bit because the pictures were taken at night and the dress was photographing black, though it's actually navy blue. But I assure you, these are real pictures. Judging by my lacklustre blog layout (errrrg...), I'm sure most of you realize that I don't have the skillz to photoshop myself on an etch and sketch arch. Didn't I tell you I keep it real like J.Lo.?
I got this pretty silk dress last winter during the end-of-season sales at the Gap for $17. My friend borrowed it for a wedding recently and made fun of me because the tags were still on. I really like the dress and I guess it's been waiting for a the right occasion. And then I realized how stupid that is. I need to stop waiting for that special day and instead make every day special. I'll pause... go ahead, grab a pencil and write that down. It'll make a good inspirational magnet or message tee.
So, I had the epiphany and decided to take my message to heart. That's how I ended up looking this good to see my dental hygienist. And while she did a great job of polishing up my pearly whites (you know how some hygienists are rough and it hurts getting your teeth cleaned? Not so this time...), I am not thrilled that I have to see her again in a few months to get the stress chip fixed on my front tooth. I don't know how I'm going to top this look next time I go... I should probably stress out about it and chip my tooth further.
