green polyester houndstooth

man, i miss my fashion blog!  i am so excited about this post!  butterick, see and sew,  pattern number b5774 is the pattern i used to make this summer dress.  I found this vintage polyester green houndstooth at a thrift store for about $2.  i love the elastic sleeves and neckline.  i need to customize the elastic waistband, in the meantime i used a cute little tie! 

i also decided to use the wrong side of the fabric as the contrast for the hem, sleeve hemming and neckline.  i added the pocket on the front, too!  can't wait to use this pattern for the next dress!

ruffly shirt

one of my favorite thrift store finds!  the lane bryant ruffly shirt and the brown cardigan!  each like $4!  woohoo!  paired with some old navy pants and my trusty danskos, i am set and warm....

a close up of the rufflies:)

so, the theme of the year is COMFORT!  compared to last year where i wanted variety and color, all i feel like wearing is something comfortable....when you are supposed to be dressing semi-professional it is a bit trying to be comfortable and dressy! 

these pants have now been added to the donate pile,
they are comfortable
but man are they ugly in this picture
they accent the fatness of the legs:)

so I have been reading sherlock holmes it!

winter comfort with turquoise thrifting!

this SO CUTE sweater was $4 at Savers.  it is 100% cotton and so comfortable!  i might just have worn it three days in a row because i love it so much!  the show -stopping necklace is a gift from one of my students, it is from its drama!  our weather here in SLC is so warm, it is unbelievable! 

have a great day!

purple and a new 'do

 One of my Christmas presents was this cute hard sided leather bag from Sam's Club.  I love it! The purple shirt and tights are from Lane Bryant.  The skirt is polka dot from Dillard's.  Shoes are Dankso.

 A new pixie 'do.  I love the cut and color!  I blow dry, put some "dry wax" product or hairspray on it and go.....easy and fun!
