weekend purchases

I've been meaning to buy this umbrella for the past 5 visits to Cafe Society, and I always get distracted by other things in the store and never buy it. I got worried it would be gone one day, so I finally brought it home!




the dress is from a vintage girl at mass market... I should have gotten some more info from her, because I don't even know her name! I'm really loving this thing! So comfortable and it goes perfectly with these grey suede shoes I've been itching to wear lately....


lastly, this ridiculously ginormo tee...



.... the saying on the back is just ridiculous... "I do it automatically"
Whatever that means.

HI! I admire your 40's & 50's dresses. You wear them well.

That dress is the most wonderful thing! I love how you can find '40s dresses in such perfect lengths ... do you buy junior's dresses?

Angie said...

Cute dress! I love the stripes. That t-shirt cracks me up. My guess is that it was a mechanic's try at double entendre.

That dress is amazing! I love the contrast between your gray monochromatic outfit and the bright, colorful umbrella. I wish I could've gone to this mass market thing to buy your shoes!

Rhianon: Thanks, thanks, thanks! I feel like I look like a frump half the time... ahh! but, I don't specifically buy juniors dresses - I usually just buy a dress that looks nice to me and end up having to alter it since I have the oddest shape to me. I really need to start looking for more, I wouldn't have to do so many alterations!

Jimena: Thank you so much! But that makes me sad that it's your dream dress! I've seen two dresses that qualify as my dream dress and I do not own either of them....... I wish there were some sort of organization putting girls in touch with their dream dress.. maybe someday!
