let’s play dress up.

So first off I wanted to wish my girlfriend and fellow blogger Clandestine Craves a happy belated birthday!
This post is dedicated to you sweets!

The past two weeks were filled with excitement and dress up opportunities.
It’s very rare, being the age I am, that I get to step outside of my style/and current fashion trends. But once a year, Halloween comes around and I either really get into it or I just sit around and do nothing. This year I got lucky and found the PERFECT costume that definitely defines me and my style. I got to dress up as a green Crayola Crayon (Screamin’ Green)–perfect right?? It was a fun, cheap ($15.00 kids costume + $5.00 Walmart wig), and easy costume that was unique. So I got to dress up and had an eventful Halloween 2011~
Here are a few captured memories from this year:

one (wo)man’s trash–another (wo)man’s treasure.

Dear Readers (YES all 5 of you!–ha I kid),

It’s been way too long since I have posted (mostly because I was so busy hanging out with my mom while she was in town). Now that she’s gone back home I felt the only way to cure the blues was to write about one of the fun things we did together. I also haven’t put up many outfit posts with pictures of me wearing the clothes I write about so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
So while mom was in town we took a Saturday and jumped from thrift store to thrift store. The best one we came across was a giant Goodwill located in Norcross, GA. Although the difficult part of finding things is the time you have to invest in rummaging–but I must tell you if you look hard enough you can get some amazing things for way cheap.
I ended up picking up some awesome things I am waiting to wear when the weather gets a little warmer: a long floral print skirt, a one piece floral print dress, and two vintage Coach bags all for under $30.00.
My mom found a lot more things but wouldn’t allow me to photograph her (although she did give me a fashion show of all of her finds when we got home). She said “no paparazzi”.
