Yes I'm Blushing

When I was taking this picture, one of the construction workers who was about 20 or so walked by. He saw me posing, and was totally confused until the camera went off. Then he was like "Oh, Myspace photos?" I was just like, "sort of...." But I'm making my embarrassed face in this picture.

Thrifted dress. Capezio tights. Jeffrey Campbell oxfords.

Yesterday I wore this dress which I got in a thrift store for $1. It's actually ankle length but since that was horribly unflattering I safety-pinned it up, which added volume. And trust me, I know this dress is basically what every blogger is wearing right now... BUT I have never seen one worn in real life and besides I can't really let that bother me. Anyway, it's interesting to see the progression of this room. At one point it was like this (first picture of the construction) and now it looks way different. i.e. there's a roof. But there's still insulation everywhere....

And I updated my links list! Tell me if I forgot you! But I'm going away until Sunday so I probably won't be able to really post/do anything until then.

Haha, oh my gosh. I knew the construction workers would catch you at some point. They're pretty sketchy, but at least they didn't catch you pretending to be pregnant (cough cough) hehe.

Anyways, I love that outfit! The shoes and the dress go really well together. =]

Oh I can feel your embarassment! I haven't been busted taking blog photos yet but I guess it's just a matter of time! I wouldn't let it bother you that other bloggers are wearing similar dresses (though I can't say I noticed...) everyone knows the average blogger is ahead of "normal" people and even magazines. Besides, it looks awesome and I can't believe it was only $1! Char x

huzzah for thinking to pin it up. i would've probably just cut it, haha. the only other time i've seen a dress like this was on a girl i went to highschoool with. she was trendy before being trendy was cool. either way, totally cute.

HA! I totally had a similar encounter last week! I was cleaning out my car in my garage and 2 young construction workers came over to see if they could fill their water from our tap.
I was like "suuuuure, THATS why you came over" HA!

Please add me if you'd like!

That sounds terribly awkward! Floral dresses are quite popular now but great because their so easy for summer. I love those shoes!
