november 15

11.14


Today was a really sad day for me as far as camera stuff goes... my 35mm lens has been on the fritz for the past month and it officially bit the dust this afternoon. I can't decide if I want to try and get it fixed or maybe just buy a 50mm lens instead.. My computer has also seen better days, and of course I fell asleep watching Law & Order SVU on netflix watch it now and I woke up at 1:45 am to a loud thud, which was my knee pushing my computer 4 feet off the bed and onto the hardwood floor. Thankfully it's working still - but I fear its ultimate demise is quickly approaching.

Anywayyyy, here are some blurry photos from yesterday afternoon. The weather here has been so good, in the 70s!! It's been really great not to worry about tights and warm layers. My dress is a teeny tiny teenagers dress from the 30s that I found at the flea market. I can't actually snap the snaps shut, so a cardigan is mandatory. The shoesies are from Maria's lovely shop, Adelaide Homesewn.

Oh! and my backpack! A really lucky flea market find from last month when Alice was here with me.. It was supposed to be a birthday present for my boyfriend but, I haven't let him use it. Not even once.. Whoops!

oh no :( i'm having bad technology luck too- camera and iphone are on their last legs.

i found a very similar backpack this fall at my goodwill! but it has two front pockets. everyone makes fun of me in atlanta for carrying one.

LOVE the sock and shoe combo and how your outfit is all dream pieces I would love to own!
I am guilty of the cardigan over the dress to hide that I can't do it up too ha! (glad to know i'm not the only one)

Ugh, I hate how fickle technology can be sometimes. At least you look good!

Penny Dreadful said...

Haha, I shall have to use the cardigan trick myself! Good idea for being able to wear things that are sliiiightly too small :)

casey said...

Oh golly... I can sympathize with the computer woes! Mine is over four years old and is definitely getting up there. It's served me well, but I fear it may be time to retire it next year. :/

I love your outfit! It is so cute--and I really love how you find these little treasures (like the dress!) and make them work in such a pretty way. That backpack is tops!

I know this is small and petty of me, but it makes me so happy to hear that there is one item of clothing that you can't snap closed. 8-)

Swingin' backpack, btw.

Amber Blue Bird said...

Megan said...

Roxanne Rosensteel said...

This is the most perfect outfit! I adore the shoe sock combination. I've found myself wandering your archives when I'm looking for inspiration, you always have the most effortless styling.

taylorkitto said...

what a wonderful find! I feel like I do the same. . . I buy my boyfriend cute thrifted things and always end up keeping them for myself. whoops! :)

Kellie W. said...

Sorry about your camera lens and computer. :( My technological thingamabobbers aren't doing much better, either. It's like they all form a conspiracy together to break down all at the same time!

Jocy said...

Bummer.

hannah, heart city said...
