Friday Finds June 25th

Dress it Up!
  • Dress- Modcloth $44.99
  • Shoes- Aldo $54.99
  • Necklace- From my Nana
  • Earrings- Aldo $12.00

I received my new dresses in the mail today just in time for my post! Yay! The first dress needs a bit of alteration so I will have to wait to take it in before I show you it, but as you can see the Soda Fountain Dress in Cola from Modcloth fits to a T. I also bought the Aldo shoes I wanted today so I am a happy camper :)

Spectator T-Straps
Aldo Hiedeman Shoes

Other purchases were a hat and earrings today.

New Fedora
Here's Looking At You
You may remember this hat from my article: Hats Hats Hats!
I just had to get it when I was at Target and I saw it was the last one there. Only $16.99

Flowers and Rhinestones
These earrings were too cute to resist and I knew they would go with my Nana's vintage necklace which I didn't really have any earrings to go with.

I had a great day today shopping with my daughter and grand daughters. I can't wait until next payday to do it again!

Neutral Zone


This Spring and Summer neutral and pale tones have been much in fashion. Not being not been one for pale colours I have stayed away from this trend until now. In an effort to push myself a little style-wise and get a bit out of my comfort zone I put together an all neutral outfit. I based it on one that Betty Grable was wearing in one of her famous pin-up photos.

Neutral Zone
  • Blouse- Anthropologie on sale $77.00
  • Shorts- Salvation Army, Hesperia $3.00
  • Belt- Vintage, remix
  • Shoes- Forever 21 $22.50
  • Jewelry- made by me

I love the vintage vibe of the outfit and the way the neutrals look together. I never would have done this on my own, but I guess designers do know a thing or two. Of course, so do pin-up girls *wink*

Chocolate Chip

I love chocolate chip ice cream. When I found this dress by the same name I just had to build a little outfit around it. It is perfect for a sweet date to an ice cream parlour. Now I really want some ice cream!

Sorry for the long delay between posts. With graduation of the last child at home (yay!)and a bit of personal turmoil I have not been able to blog. I am trying to remedy that. I STILL have photos I need to upload from my camera, sigh.
