A roundup of patterned dresses!

The previous post reminded me of how much I love it when two of my favorite wardrobe things are combined – in this case patterns/prints and dresses! So I couldn’t resist making this huge roundup of some of my past favorites – I couldn’t even include them all! Hope you enjoy – and as always, click on the photo to get to the original post!

And last, a dress I would and style I would no longer wear! But was totally into back then, so it’s nice to see how your style evolves :)

A dress off the bucket list

There are just some things a woman who thrifts wants to find (I speak for myself clearly). I always dreamt that I would find a vintage Pucci dress, in all its 60′s swirly goodness. But I’ve never, ever, had the luck of finding anything. Like, even remotely close. I could find a new Herve Leger dress and Yves Saint Laurent heels, but yet I couldn’t find this one thing!

So when my sister called me, and asked if I wanted a Pucci dress, I was sure that it was either a) really expensive or b) she was joking. But here she was, handing me my one impossible find (thank you Diana!). It really is the perfect summer dress. Now I need a real vacation to use it! So that’s one more tick off the fashion bucket list!

Do you have that one fashion find that you hope to get one day?

In the tall grass

1. Hello California drought

2. A quick Saturday trip up north is my battery charger – stepping away from the hustle & bustle of the city is nice, makes me appreciate it all that more when I come back! I wish I could take longer trips up there, but alas! The laundry calls (along with 8 billion other errands).

Hat: Vintage. Top: Vintage. Top: The Row, from Jeremy’s SF (black or white version here). Shorts: Maison Scotch. Sandals: Nine West. Glasses: Ray Ban.

And now back to the grind! Happy Monday!

Pops of pink

The pink in my hair in the last post made me think about the color pink in my wardrobe. I think of pink as a condiment, it’s nice sprinkled in a bit here and there, but not the main taste. Hence why you won’t see me wearing a statement making piece like a pink coat or pink pants. It looks great on others, but I prefer making big statements with silhouettes and wearing patterns, to each their own.

So for this remix, enjoy these pops of pink over the years! Click on the photo to reach the original post

I always thought I didn’t have a lot of pink in my wardrobe until I did this roundup! Wow, I have a lot of pink! How do you feel about it in your closet?

Weekend hair

I’ve never been one to be very adventurous with my hair – I’ve had it almost every length, colored it every shade of auburn and brown, and a blonde just once. But never something unnatural! I admit I’m scared. Since I recently finally caved in and went to a professional to fix my hair, it has left the ends of my hair much lighter – thus allowing for what I’m now calling weekend hair. I went to Walgreens and found some hair chalk. I got pink, but now I wish I’d gotten the blue! So now I can have fun with it on the weekends, and wash it out when it’s time to go back to work.

Dress: Betsey Johnson, I’ve had it for years. Shoes: Matt Bernson (so comfy!)
