z'avez pas vu ma brosse à dents!?


dress: thrift -- belt: thrift -- boots: thrift -- earrings: thrift

Oh my goodness, it's been quite a week. I still have one final on Friday, but I'm not too worried about it. The big hurdles for me was my term paper about thrift-vintage fashion and authenticity. (The written version of the presentation that I posted.)



I really love the sweep of this dress! It's just a real pleasure to wear. My grandmother took me thrifting for my birthday in September while I was visiting the small town where she lives. I filled up a whole grocery bag for something like $4. Small town thrift stores are the best!


Tree earrings and nice pleats!

I hope you like the new layout :) I've got spring on the mind, and I was sick of the dreary brown and black of my old background. Oh, and...

my Etsy shop is up and running!

I'm still working on posting everything I want to sell. It takes SO LONG. Oh my goodness, I figured it was a ton of work, but I had no idea just how much. I'll be posting about it more over the weekend once I'm all done posting my wares.

My 100th post is coming up, and I think I'll host a giveaway to celebrate. What is your favorite kind of giveaway? Do you like Etsy store credit? Thrifted accessories? Little trinkets? I don't have much of a budget, I'm afraid, but I want to give away something that people want and that will entice participation, too. What has worked for you?


I feel like such a broken record, but, again, I am so sorry for being such a terrible blog reader! I've just been so, so unbelievably busy that It's been impossible. But I should be back in the game for the next couple of months until finals hit again...

Today's title comes from Jacqueline Taieb -- 7 heures du matin, my favorite getting ready for school jam. Definitely beats "Friday."

Love how your dress matches the new background flowers! And in my next life, I'm going to be really good at putting on eyeliner like you. ;^)

I'd try and find something that represents your style, as your readers probably come here for your style and will most likely love something you love :-D I love your hair, your heavy liner and your dresssssss

glad to have you back!

I just saw your last post with the old pictures and I was like dayum her hair is so pretty long and then I read you're going to grow it back out and I'm totally for it. You look SO much like Zooey Deschanel, you should get her haircut!

beautiful dress! I'm a sucker for pleats and winged eyeliner. and thanks so much for visiting my blog! In response to your question, I don't really have a preference for chap-sticks. Burt's Bees is nice but I like lip-smackers because they come in packs of...a lot...and I tend to lose them...a lot.
