straw cowgirl hat-Kmart, wooden bead necklace-gift from a friend, Converse plaid babydoll dress-thrifted, Hush Puppies denim & silver sandals-gift from a friend

A couple of weeks ago we had an unusually warm day so when we went out to eat I was able to wear this super cute Converse babydoll dress that I haven’t worn nearly enough. I was feeling happy and silly cuz my man was wearing his new Santa hat so I topped it off with a cowgirl hat that I bought at Kmart in 2011. I added a necklace and shoes and voila, a fun day!

How cute is he, really? Super, ah.

You may recall that recently I bought some kick ass wet look capris from EdenFantasys. So despite the fact that I was ill with a cold not long ago I was easily talked into going to see a revival of the film Grease. As I mentioned in my post Fashion Review: Tell Me About It, Stud Wet Look Capris these capris remind so much of Sandy in Grease. Of course that means that I had to wear them to go see the movie.

Now if you are already wearing the pants why not go all the way and basically costume it up? I paired those capris with my OOAK off the shoulder Army of Darkness top that I bought on eBay years back (turned inside out, of course), a pair of espadrilles from Target, my Miley & Max jacket that I’ve been rocking for years and some cute faux gold and diamond hoop earrings.

It was so much fun to see the movie up on the big screen again. I caught the ’98 re-release when I was in junior high and that was also a blast.

faux straw hat-Dollar Tree, wooden beaded necklace-gift from a friend, 1980s red triangle clip on earrings-gift from a friend, 1980s dress by in cinq with rope belt-thrifted, kitten heel espadrilles by Predictions-thrifted

One beautiful day in late May (why the fuck am I rhyming?), I decided on this get up. My sister was visiting. She had just done my hair and makeup for another post so I felt silly dressing down with a fancy head on my shoulders. Plus it felt like a fun day. So I decided on this dress from the 80s that I’d found a couple of months before in a thrift store. I love the bright floral bottom. It also had padded shoulders but I cut those babies right out.

I had to add another thrift store find, some super cute tan kitten heel style espadrilles. They are very similar to some that I had highly coveted from my favorite online shoe club but they cost me $36 less.


I completed the look with some fun costume jewelry given to me by a friend and a cheap, yet incredibly durable hat.

My sister, Hot Donna, decided to get in on the fun so this is the same day that we shot her In the Garden photos.

Not long ago Hot Donna was visiting so I talked her into an OOTD shoot. There isn’t a story. We just had fun and laughed a lot. Yes, she is borrowing my hat because she loves and wants to steal it, lol. Enjoy!

Albertus Swanepoel for Target Ganache Hat, pink pearls-Kmart, faux leather brown bomber jacket-Dots, Carol Anderson brown and white polka dot dress-thrifted, green pantyhose-Target, Rocket Dog heels-thrifted

As you’re aware I have a bit of a 90s fetish. So as of late I’d found myself ogling the cute, comfy looking shirtdresses sported by Bridget Fonda, Mary Stuart Masterson and the like while watching 90s flicks. So yes, I was on the look out for a shirtdress to add to my wardrobe. What I happened to come across was actually one that I believe is from the 80s that was trying to evoke the 50s. I loved it. And yes, it totally came from the local magical thrift shop where I score stuff like this super cheap.

As I mentioned in my Miracle-Gro post I’ve been wanting to do an OOTD in front of our garden. However I’ve been feeling run down and not even trying to dress in anything but tees and cargos lately. However at the end of April during a day that felt like fall I tried to improve my down in the dumps spirit/downtrodden body by wearing this and whatever other fun things that struck my fancy.

I paired my dress with some green tights I got at Target over the winter, adorable brown and green Rocket Dog heels, a faux leather jacket I got at Dots a while back, my pink pearls (cuz why not) and topped it with a cloche hat that I snagged at Target on sale. Yes, it was from that Albertus Swanepoel for Target collection that I was coveting last fall. I managed to score this one and the blue hat in my snow alien photo set (also from his collection) super cheap since people in this town don’t love hats like I do (clearance baby!).

I sort of felt like I was walking around from a different time period in this outfit but it definitely cheered me up, thus doing its job.
