end of week

31 Jan

So this weekend…..

I did bar training at work & learned to make pretty drinks…

had 2 delicious breakfasts out with lovely company…

saw funny pictures

had usual snort conversations

wore one of my favorite hats with a silly shirt…

hung out with this guy who made a funny cartoon for my mom…

& my mom rightfully hung it on her fridge…

today I wore this…

[ BLAZER – THRIFTED; HAT – NY&CO; JEANS – HOT TOPIC; SHIRT – VICTORIA’S SECRET; SHOES – MIA VIA DSW ]

Changed into this….

[ JEANS – HOT TOPIC; SHOES – MIA; TANK – J CREW; BLAZER – CHARLOTTE RUSSE; HAT – RUE21 ]

I tried bubble tea for the first time! Jasmine Green of course!

& then over dinner decided along with four lovely ladies to get matching heart tattoos!

took it like a champ as usual… (actually a completely painless tattoo)

lovely yes?! yes.

Thanks to a beautiful week of 54 working hours, my overtime made my mgr cry so she told me I couldn’t come into work until 5pm today!

That means I had time to thrift, get groceries & curl my hair! Wooo!

Cant keep up with my chargers or boys

25 Jan

Isaac time! Always finding cute boys who cook me delicious
food! Boys that are sad about diminishing whiskey, the butt heart
Brandon draws on me everyday at work, pitstop at my favorite target
brought the knee sock motherload at $2 & a hello kitty
fedora, went to the circus, found the smokes my friend Chris smoked
before he died. We thought they discontinued them so I had to buy
them to sniff :). Saved my twinsie in my phone as our emoticon,
made a snort face in a picture, had delicious eggs florentine at a
famous Nashville diner, found the heels I’ve wanted for MONTHS on
sale after a very rough day, & stolen cherry cobbler is the breakfast of champions! Ive had bundles of fun
lately! My life is so full of win!

Keepin it classy!

That jacket was such a sweet find! Being that I was a dumbass who ran away to DC without a jacket, I scored that size 4 H&M jacket for just $4.99!! The jumper was a steal from twinsie that I hemmed & of course there’s my pattern mixing again along with my die hard love for stripes. Fun times!

Hey Laura, Where’s Mary?

22 Jan

This is the outfit that started the whole name game.

It’s been to long to even remember them all but I know I had 8. Not counting the multiple “doll” tags, I got “Hey Laura where’s Mary?” (favorite), Annie Oakley, Cabbage Patch Kid (?), oh god I really wish I could remember! Anyway,

I wore it out to see “How Do You Know” (which I was very disappointed in, but I could watch Paul Rudd 24/7/365), to afternoon tea (fun to say!) with some lovely ladies & then to work on a Saturday.

My twinsie & her sweet friend Ellee!

Dyslexic Flag

21 Jan

I am OFFICIALLY addicted to pattern mixing!

Also, this outfit brings my ALL TIME favorite outfit comment from work

“You look like a dyslexic flag!”

bahahhaha. still makes me snort!

[ SKIRT & SCARF – THRIFTED; SOCKS – LITTLE GIRLS TIGHTS CUT OFF; SHIRT & SHOES – WALMART’ ]

Funny, this outfit actually made a man that comes in practically every day FINALLY speak to me after SIX months. His wife was in the bathroom & without actually making eye contact with me, said, “You wear the cutest outfits I have ever seen. Every day. but this one, you are just TOO cute!” I had no idea what to say. He literally has only ever nodded at me & said “booth please” haha. It’s was definitely a HUGE moment!

Most importantly

20 Jan

Alright. Its time to pre-schedule posts again. (since I suck so bad!)

Again there is no logic to the order of my posts, I’m starting with this because it’s important (especially since I posted a sneak preview) & then from now on it’ favorites first

Talk about daring!

I found this bow in a scrap bin at Target of all places! I have no idea what it was for, but I’ve had it for a year +. I added a pin back to it & let it sit. Finally it struck me, BOWTIE!

dundundun

Suprisingly I thought the owner would have some silly comment about my outfit, but man he LOVED it! “have you always dressed so cute?! Doesn’t she look cute!?!? Mt. Vernon model!” hahaha. love him!
