On to the week-grab some popcorn and a comfy chair- this is a long one.
Wednesday-working at Preschool, then home to work in the shop
First, a story-last year my mom sent me a dress. It was fabulous. Total hippie, empire waist, triangle cut top with silver beaded spaghetti straps. Perfect for the Spring/Summer. A-Dorable. Me written all over it. Then I tried it on. The medium juniors department dress did.not.fit. Nope. tiny top, waaayy too tight around the ribs, boobs (which are not so huge) falling out everywhere. It was so sad. I couldn't get rid of it. I thought I could find a way to alter it to make it work, but thus far- nada. This morning I woke up and decided I was going to wear it. Some way, some how.
So.....

I hiked it way up above my waist, tucked the top and straps, threw a brown tee over it and adorned with a belt to hide some of the extra bulk. I felt like Alice in Wonderland.

Brown tee- Old Navy
Brown/Copper Belt-?
Dress worn as a skirt-Macy's clearance
Blue tights-Target clearance
Rusty red flats-Kohl's
Beaded necklace-Eclectic Elegance

Bows

My girls and I wore bows for Maddie today. So sad.

Didn't Little Sister look adorable in her new outfit from Crazy8? Mega clearance to stock up for next winter and fill in the gaps where she suddenly outgrew her sister's hand me downs this year.

Oh, and it was chilly when we left this morning. I wore this fabulous red, leather coat.

You look super skinny in your gray cowl sweater and jeans from AE! I'd love those jeans, too! The brown hat from Urban Outfitters is awesome! The photo of you playing in the snow with your kiddos is the sweetest! Great week!

So many outfits - love it! I love the overexposed shot. Actually very beautiful and magazine quality. I like the first look, but for me it shouts The Sound of Music, which is my fav movie of all time. The white ruffled blouse and entire look is gorgeous on you, and the gray vest and long sleeved tee looks classic. Red leather jacket -- WOW! You look smokin' in it!
