When the Rodarte collection came out at Target, I wanted one thing. The skelly sequined shift dress. That’s it. I got up that Sunday and got online at 10:30 to discover it was already sold out. I tried a couple stores, but no luck. I wasn’t that shocked, remember that Alexander McQueen jacket I have sold out between 9 and 11 AM the day it was released. But I was disappointed. Cut to last Friday. We went to Target to pick up a crock pot of all things and right there in the entrance was the Rodarte display, and they had a skelly dress, and it fit. Excuse the cruddy blackberry pic, but I really just took it for Alannah. I cannot get over how excited I am to find this dress.
Also? I earned enough money selling various things and saving my Christmas money from Alannah to get my Wendy B piece. I honestly thought it would take months. I am super surprised and delighted and my order has been placed.
I’ve been having a run of good luck in 2010. I’m hoping it will hold out. Friday I found the skelly dress. Saturday a cousin gave me two sets of antlers he had so that I can mount them and hang them in my living room. Now some of you might not think that’s so cool, but to me it’s the coolest ever. Sunday I earned the money for and ordered my Wendy B piece. Plus we had a crappy Ikea coffee table and really needed to replace it. The surface was all cracked and peeled and ugly and one of the legs was broken, and then last night Nathan’s aunt gave us a really nice solid wood coffee table! I’m not hating 2010.
I know I need a new camera. My pictures just get sadder and sadder. I have a Cannon, and I think I am going to suck it up and buy a lens soon. And then learn how to use it!
Please, please feel free to make fourth grade style jokes about the way my skirt is falling. I did.
When I bought that sweater, I was 50 pounds heavier and it was a fitted sweater. I don’t wear it as often anymore, and I tend to prefer it straight out of the dryer before it’s had a chance to stretch out a bit, but I do still like it. It’s well made and a great color for my wardrobe.
Almost every time I carry this purse, someone tries to buy it off me, but it’s not for sale!~ I think we paid all of a couple bucks for it at an estate sale, and it is the tackiest thing I own, but I adore it, and it adds a great splash of color to an otherwise all grey and black outfit.
This necklace is a great, affordable way to get in on the studding trend, and it’s super wearable, even if you feel you are more conservative. It’s also really well made, even with all the studs, everything lays very flat and there is no puckering. Plus it’s just really awesome.
I don’t wear rings as much in the winter, since they are kind of uncomfortable under gloves, but these felt OK, and I feel a bit more dressed up!~
