What I wore; Colorblock Dress - The Dainty Squid

What I wore; Colorblock Dress

Thursday, August 04, 2011

The details:
dress - thrifted
sweater - forever 21
necklace - c/o Paper Sparrow
rings - forever 21
socks - target
shoes - c/o Blowfish

I'm madly in love with this dress! I originally bought it to resell, but the other day I was having an "I hate everything I own, it's all dumb" moment and decided to go through a box of vintage goodies that I have in the basement and found this beautiful dress. It's so snazzy!! Pretty sure I'll be keeping it now. ;)

On a kind of random note; for my birthday I bought myself a new iMac! I'm so excited to be working from this big beast. It's transformed what my work space looks like and I'm loving it! My craft room feels more like an office now, which I totally dig! I also feel a new passion to finish decorating in here. (My craft room and I are always in a constant battle in case you didn't notice!) I can't wait to share photos of my workspace!

Well I've gotta go, I'm still working on transferring all my photos and documents over to my new computer! Hope you're all having a fabulous Thursday!
xoxo
