I instantly fell in love with this dress even though I knew Adrianna Papell runs small & doesn't really fit me...I didn't care...I had to wear this dress no matter how obscenely short & tight it was...& oh, it most certainly was. But those colors! I can't really speak to the fit since I could have used a dress two sizes larger...but it made me smile all day. 
I bought this cardigan through GB's Try then Buy ages ago ($18 & I was the first person to get it...back in spring 2015 when GB prices were reasonable)...& I found these shoes for $3 at Savers. 
I wore this retro floral dress on the day we went to our retro house to have a home inspection. There is mosaic *everywhere*...other than that...nothing has been done to this house since it was built in 1956. And we like it that way...because we plan on completely remodeling every room. What I currently like about it: red brick exterior, the layout, the size of the kitchen, all the windows, huge backyard, & that fireplace in the basement is fantastic. We have plans...I'm especially excited about that closet in my office (where David is standing)'s ~4'x5' & we're going to make it an alcove by getting rid of all the doors...& then I'll put a vintage vanity in that space for all my make-up.
Pizza at Sal's...the last time at their original location...their new place is so much nicer & 6x the size. 
My Sephora sale haul...
The Modern Renaissance palette has gotten the most use so far. 
My make-up with this outfit included...Kat von D eyeshadow in Synth, Misfit, Fran, & Swoon; Urban Decay lipstick in Sheer Anarchy; Russian Roulette lipstick by NYX; & Teal the Cows Come Home nail polish from OPI.
