I got some things done today!

August 5, 2010

Since I’ve been getting only 5 hours of sleep no matter what time I go to bed (no thanks to my dog, who wakes me up when he wants some love), I decided that I’d whip out some clothes that I’ve been meaning to take a pair of scissors to.

First off, this dress that I got from Goodwill a few months ago:

I was looking for the perfect floral dress with short sleeves, and I found it! But in the form of a long dress that I wasn’t entirely fond of.

See how perfect the print is? So anyway, I was about to cut, and noticed that the dress had already been shortened. That meant the dress was crazy long to begin with! But now, it’s perfect and just needs to be hemmed. I’ll probably wear it before then, though.

Also, I cut a couple of pairs of Levi’s that I bought at Goodwill shortly before I bought the dress. I’ve been wearing them rolled up because I was afraid to cut them, but they bunched up all weird, so I decided it was time to do it. Cutting shorts is always scary because of the, “Oh man, that’s TOO short,” factor. Everything ended up perfect though :)

I’m also wearing a Hand crocheted top that I found a Goodwill on my most recent trip. It’s so cute and dainty! It goes perfect with denim.

I’m so excited for all my new items! I feel like I just got new clothes, lol!

Haha, would it be creepy to say that I know what they look like? I think I remember a post on Chictopia about it, lol. But yes! Way cooler, though I admit, I'm in desperate need for a pair.

And yes, florals are amazing! I think you and Maricela could be best friends, haha.
