Bacon & Eggs

11:06 AM


Hello everyone! Summer is turning out to be such a blast! Last night, the neighbors and I all got together and we cooked up the last of the left-overs. There is something about fresh-cooked food, the faint smell of ciggarettes, and cold beer on a 85 degree day that really makes summer. I really could not have thought of a better place to be, it was great just sitting around BSing until late at night. I think we will probably make this a weekly thing. The only problem is.....if Kyle and I are looking for a house, we are going to have to leave them all :( just when we get a great group!


This is the dress that started it all folks. I bought this baby a few years ago at Regeneration in Ferndale, and it was the first thrifted dress that I remember buying. I knew it would be huge on me, so I bought a green belt to go with it. Of course, this black one that came with my NYE dress was free and it is easier to use (it stays put) but it is great to think that this one dress basically got me into thrifting more and more. Instead of spending $20 on a top at hot topic, or American eagle, I can buy more clothes and be a little more creative. The dress isn't anything too special, I am sure if another girl went into a thrift store, she could find one exactly like it, but, I guess the point is to make it your own. (Nothing against department stores, for I am a forever 21 whore) Like mixing it with a great, priceless bag from Target! lol. I know this bag was mass-produced a few years ago, but it was too silly not to pass up. I think it is great. :)

  1. its amazing how rewarding not only in your wallet but also as a consumer thrifting is. whenever i go to the mall i look at pieces and i say i would pay 5 dollars for that and that is what it is when thrifting.

    also i think this dress is quite cute. i really like the colors!

  8. Aw glad you live around great people. And I love this dress! It's gorgeous on you. I'm not a big thrifter as of yet, but where I live doesn't offer the greatest choices.

  9. Oh, I remember my first thrifted piece. It was a little green dress as well. Funny how we hold on to the ones that started all the madness. I think this dress is gorgeous. I love the print and how you paired with the socks and flats.

    And just think of the potential your new neighbors could have! They could be as great as your old neighbors and if they're not, you can always go back and visit your old neighbors.
