New Vintage Store!

I finally got my last check from work on the same day that I handed in two papers so I decided that I deserved some celebratory shopping. I had heard there was a vintage store in the square called Oonas so I decided to go there. So glad I did, it was the most amazing store, I could barely decide what to try on, let alone what to buy. In the end I got two great dresses (one I need to alter a bit) and an amazing hat!

Sometimes a Dress Looks Better Backwards

At the yard sale I got this amazing black paillettes dress. My first step was to take out the shoulder pads, I have no hips so emphasizing my shoulders is not what I want to be doing. Then I tried it on, and realized that the back might look really good as the front. Turns out I was right! The dress can now go from pretty conservative to super sexy.

It actually looks like I have breasts! Always a good thing with a fancy dress.

My Fashion Mistake

So last night while doing yoga and playing around on an exercise ball I managed to pull a muscle in my back. Of course this morning I completely forgot about this and paired heels with my million pound backpack. I almost didn't make it all the way to class, almost just collapsed in Harvard Yard. I also learned that if you're going to bring something with you to keep warm during class in the freezing air conditioning don't actually wear it on the walk, esp. if it's above 70 degrees out. So miserable right now.
To top it off, the dress I'm wearing I made for myself around Thanksgiving and since then I've lost about 30 pounds. So the breast area doesn't so much fit anymore. Oh well, I still look better than the typical Science Fiction fan so its ok.

My Outfit!

I really love the blue puffy skirt I made but I keep finding that I don't wear it enough. So I brought on my trip to NYC to guarantee I'd wear it. Here it is with a black tank top from I think Express from a million years ago. Also with my awesome black high heels from the Garment District.

Suck It PETA

100% genuine mink fur coat.

Yard Sales!

I was in NYC this weekend and on Sunday Mitch and I decided it would be a perfect day for yard saling! We went on craigslist and found about 7 that we wanted to go to and even made a route on the GPS. Super fun, and we got a ton of great stuff.

Here is our trunk at the end of the day. Unfortunately most of it is covered by the mink coat($5!!!).

Here I am trying on the dress I just got over my outfit and holding the amazing preserved shark in a jar. The first thing I did when I got home was take out the shoulder pads in the dress and it look seriously amazing!

I got this amazing umbrella at a moving sale. It's massive, plus it has pictures of dogs on it. So cool.

This amazing petrified wood coffee table was also at that sale but unfortunately neither myself nor Mitch has any need for a petrified wood coffee table. Oh well, I take solace in my pretty apron.
