art stroll

we ventured out to manhattan yesterday to run some errands and have dinner :) here i am, bracing for the inevitable... having to take my coat off for the sake of outfit photos.

the things we do for blogging...




we were outside of blick art store, where i got some gelly roll glitter pens that i'm way too excited about! i can't wait to use them in some project, or maybe just to write someone a love note with :)

now usually i do a bunch of editing to my photos to get that "vintagey" effect. but i just loved the way the colors came out here, so i decided to leave them alone this time... they're perfect as is! this whole outfit is full of unbelievable scores. the dress was $2.50. the shoes were i think, $3. the scarf, an anthropologie $10 sale item. in fact, total cost of the outfit, including coat: $44.50

a couple of these items are really special, and i'm going to be reporting on them further this week:

- the amazing vintage hat, my parents found for me on a recent "house haul" for their store.
- and the sweater was an awesome gift from the style studio event i attended on friday thrown by lulu's! i was running late, and was one of the last people let in to look at the clothing and pick an item. i ended up being really happy with this sweater though, and haven't been able to take it off! it is SO cozy (but not very warm.)
