I'm Evolving

It's been a little while since I've done a real post, but I haven't been feeling inspired. Luckily a few fashion related things have happened which make for an exciting blog post!

Saturday: As a birthday present, my parents took me shopping during the day and gave me some money to spend. I couldn't afford anything major, but I was able to get a dress, tank top, scarf, and tights from Brass Plum and a pair of peep toe, high heeled Oxfords, along with a pair of navy flats from Nine West. That night we went out to dinner at Macaroni Grill (yum!) and I got a gift card to F21 from my aunt and uncle, gift card to Urban Outfitters from my brother and his wife, some cool paintings of Paris and New York from my twin brother, and a promise to go vintage shopping from my brother and his fiance.

Tuesday: My brother's fiance, Elyse, took me shopping in this cute area with lots of little shops.The first thrift store we went into had all the bad 80's clothes. After that we went to Buffalo Exchange where I picked up two dresses and a Ralph Lauren shirt. Finally we found a great vintage store with lots of fun skirts and dresses where I bought the dress that I am wearing in these pictures below. It's fantastic, beige with a square neck, a-line skirt, and it buttons all up the back. I also bought a cute little 90's floral baby doll dress. Once I get my license I need to go back there! But finally! breaking out of my forever 21 and H&M habit!

Yesterday: Michelle and Jessica came over and we watched Sabrina and Roman Holiday...even though we talked through most of Sabrina and didn't even finish Roman Holiday. I love it when we all hang out! We all (along with Alena who couldn't make it) get along just SO well and never run out of things to talk about! Hopefully we are all going to go shopping next week together and get into lots of trouble (wait, I'll be there...there won't be any getting into trouble! haha) We took lots of pictures in my backyard and here are a few:

Dress: Vintage; Scarf: F21; Slingbacks: Simply Vera Wang at Khol's

hopefully there will be more outfit posts soon!
