Happy Wednesday, everyone!

A few days late with posting these, but better late than never...

Blowfish Blowfish


Do you know how some certain pieces of clothing can remind you of specific times in your life? Well, me and this dress have some history together. I thrifted it back when my parents were living in Maine. Even though I think it's a cute, 90's inspired print, I used to wear it a lot during some of my more depressed days, so it has that association for me. Also, I've since lost some weight and it's a little too roomy. Honestly, this dress was in my "get rid of" pile recently... but I decided to rescue it for one last hurrah.

To be quite honest, one of my favorite things about this outfit is the socks :P I ordered a few colors from Show Your Legs on Ebay, and I must say, I dig them. The material unfortunately doesn't feel like cotton (even though supposedly, it is.) But they are sturdy, comfortable, and I feel like colored socks (much like colored tights) are an easy way to jazz up an outfit. If you order a few pairs and save on shipping, they're a pretty excellent deal!

    1. i don't know! i was thinking of giving it to my mom. the day i picked it up in the thrift store she was with me. and it was one of those funny movie-esque moments when we both picked it up at the same time and exclaimed "i love this!!" but being a good mom, she let me have it ;)

  9. i know what you mean about associating certain things with clothes! whenever i pull an item out of my closet i can remember exactly what i did the last time i wore it no matter how exciting or boring. . . what a useless talent! ha. this dress is great and your bangs are looking incredibly fabulous!

  10. I'm such a lover of fun socks- probably because tights season is so short here in PHX. I'm going to have to check out that shop! I'm glad you gave the dress a last hurrah but I know what you mean about association. It's crazy how that can happen with everything from music, smells and food to clothing items... I always love your outfit pics!

  11. I do love the colorful pop of red in your socks! It makes me want to get more for myself! Also, that floral dress is cute, I've put things in my to get rid of piles and then snatched them up last minute before. Some things just need to be rescued!
