Housewife v.2.0

Sunday, August 30, 2009
This dress is a little small if you couldn't tell. If I gain any more weight, I'm gonna have to sell it. I thought I'd never wear this again because I didn't have the right shoes or accessories for it. It's not really my style but it was $1. Who could resist that??

Wearing secondhand F21 dress ($1), Gap cami ($7), secondhand belt ($6), Ros Hommerson oxfords ($25).

When I saw these shoes online, I knew I had to get them! I honestly wouldn't mind six of these...they match everything and I'm sure I'd wear them out sooner than I think.

And....I didn't cut my hair, I just tucked it in the back. People always ask me that whenever I wear my hair this way :).

A big THANK YOU to Eileen of The Shoe of Salvation and Janet of JANETTERIA for the blog awards!

  11. I have a dress sort of like that! It's a little too long, though, so I don't wear it often. Polka dots are great.

    In response to your question- I'm at SUU. I love the school, but I don't so much love the town (too small). But it's okay. I haven't tried my pear yogurt yet; it might be the last flavor left before I get brave enough!

  24. Elaine, you find the craziest (by that I mean best) deals ever. I need to go to SLC and find stuff for a dollar, LOL. Those oxfords are great - and once again, what a great deal!

    Oh and my hair Q on your last post, it looked especially *layer-y* :) I always get the "did you get a haircut" Q...even from my mother, LOL.
