Day 16 (3 + 11 + 22)

3 AA Charcol Cardigan + 11 large print floral dress + 22 sperry boots =

Day 16 (3 + 11 + 22)

How cute is that little bag? I got it with a credit to CSN Stores that I won from T Minus T Plus and the boots are a give away prize from Sperry and Between Laundry Days! Not bad for free, eh?

Day 16 (3 + 11 + 22)

I met Elissa from Dress With Courage for lunch today. Here are some things I love about Elissa:

* Her blog. It is well written and super interesting. Almost every single day you can learn a little bit more about Elissa as a person and I love that. I'm a big fan.

* Her smile. It's wide and geniune and goes alllll the way up to her pretty eyes.

* When I talk, she really listens. You can see it in the way she looks you right in the eyes.

* She laughs when I say stupid things, but not at me. She laughs because she thinks I'm funny.

* She is real. She tells the truth and she opens her heart.

* Her shoes today were ADORABLE.

*She can talk clothes for hours and she is an expert thrifter. Having no real skill myself, I am drawn to excellent thrifters.

And those are just a couple things. I could go on and on. But don't take my word for it. Go give her a read for yourself.

Those boots are great! I'm not sure if I would love them if I saw them at the store but seeing them on and styled like you have I kinda have a shoe crush.

I'm off to read Elissa's blog!

See, I think you're like a muse to thrifters. You don't get to thrift yourself, but you inspire others to thrifting greatness.

And I *heat* those boots.

Erin said...

Sigh. I *HEART* those boots. Dumb r key...

I just found her blog last week!
Also loving that bag - I saw the picture and thought "CUTE BAG!!!" Total score on the free boots!

Elissa said...

I must agree. You are my muse. My fashion and blogging and jewelry and all around cool-girl muse. I want to be you when I grow up. Which I never will, so it's okay.

I had an awesome time with you today. This post is amazing. I'm certain I'm not close to being worthy of it. But thank you. Really.

I am always jealous whenever I see you or Clare in those boots! And this outfit is making me want it to be spring even more (though I don't know that it's possible!)

Yay! I'm glad you found something you like with the CSN gift certificate! And I can't wait to meet Elissa.

I really really love this dress, it looks amazing on you! =) Also, on the post above this one I love your top, and in response to the Friend Friday bit, my family has that same chin thing, but really it's not noticeable on you at all, neither are the arms! I think you look lovely =)
