Everything, Everything, Everything, Everything Ends.

So 2009 is on its way out, and personally, I cannot wait to see the back end of it. For me personally 2009 had good times, but it had a disproportionate amount of bad. Hands down this year gets my vote as Worst Year Ever. 2010 better step it up or I will probably get cranky. Everything ends. I am holding on to that.

But on a brighter, more shallow note, let’s talk outfit!~ Yay!~

December 30

Oh look!~ It’s The First Dress I Ever Wore on The Blog. I think I actually wear it less than I want to because I always think of it as the first dress I wore on WWWYG, and for some reason, that translates to feeling like I wear it all the time, which of course, I don’t.

In the pictures, you can see it got a little pick in it this morning, which I didn’t notice before the picture, but the great thing about this dress is that when you pull those, they go right down, no ripping, and because the pattern is so soft and so colorful, they are totally unnoticeable once they are smoothed back down.

I’m wearing the earmuffs I stole from my husband. Because of the hairpins I use to hold back my bangs, I can’t really wear hats, so normally I wear a hoodie and I pull the hoodie up and set it right behind my bangs on my head. It keeps most of my hair dry and my ears warm. But when I am not wearing a hoodie, these are great. They are harder to find than they should be, I think. Now all you can find are fleece bands and those ear “muffs” that pop on each ear individually, but neither of those is as cute as or has the kitch value of classic earmuffs. Plus they are warm and don’t interfere with my hairstyle.

More bullet and crystal jewelry by Prairie Oats (worn with my talon necklace as well, but I feel like you guys have seen that a few hundred times!)

And a Holy Santos bracelet that Pilalex got me in Mexico. It doesn’t really go with my outfit today but you know, I don’t care. I have not had a chance to wear it yet and I got tired of waiting for the “right” thing to wear it with, so I decided to wear it with whatever I wanted!

December 30

I’m still saving for my Wendy B piece. I am taking a bag of things to Buffalo Exchange today but you never know how that’s going to go. I might get $50.00, I might get nothing.

I am going to do a post sometime in the next few days and offer a few bags and jewelry pieces for sale. I sincerely hope it doesn’t annoy, irritate, offend or otherwise upset anyone. I’m impatient, and I’m not good at waiting for something I want. So I’m itching to raise the funds as quickly as possible and get that big hunk of wolf fang on my neck. Stayed tuned. I hope I have some things you might be interested in.

That's such a cute dress!

I love ear muffs - they were so huge back in the late 80s, and now they are impossible to find! Bring 'em back!

Retrodiva said...

That is one amazing bracelet! Love it! And why can't I find a soft motorcycle jacket like that? I haven't seen one at my Target - and I feel like I'm there all the time. Great outfit.

I adore that necklace!!!

I was wondering if you know of any other fashion bloggers in Texas? There's you :) and Adored Austin, but that is all I know of. Thanks!

I remember that first post, and pulling together an outfit inspired by that dress - it has nostalgic value for me! :D

Agree completely re ear muffs - I bought me a red fluffy pair last year and they're great for keeping the chill off. Plus I think they're super-cute.

Here's hoping 2010 steps up for everyone! xx

Yeah, I'm with you about 2009. Such a suck-fest. Anyway, I love this outfit, too. Such a great dress!
