my one dollar sweater.

because of the "blizzard" (the news people make it a huge deal and cause utter chaos at the grocery store) i didn't have to go into the office yesterday, meaning i only had to go in once this week! when i talked to my boss this morning, she said today would be a jeans day; color me happy, i love my jeans. i knew i would wear my boots with all the snow and ice on the ground, and i also figured i'd wear a sweater since it's so cold. enter my new one dollar sweater. when micaela and i went on our thrifting date saturday, we got lucky and discovered they were having a tag sale complete with racks of vintage clothes. as soon as i saw this sweater, i knew i would make it mine, and i wore it for the first time today. it's a new favorite!

coat: forever 21, sweater: vintage, jeans: tj maxx, boots: mossimo/target, necklace: bueno bueno

i know i've said this before, but i feel so weird taking pictures of myself. i always get this weird look and my eyebrow goes up and i don't even realize i'm doing it. but the point is, you're supposed to be looking at my outfit, not my weird faces!

do you watch dexter? chris and i watch it online and tonight we're getting caught up on the newest season. it's so addictive. and i'm always behind in celebrity love news, but micaela told me saturday that the woman who plays deb is married to michael c. hall (which i didn't know), then on tuesday, i saw on tv that they were splitting up! how did i not know all this time that they were together?!?

what have you been wearing lately?

  2. i really love the color on you! and so worth a $1 ;) how kismet is this? i wore one of my $1 sweaters as you can see from my post today! lol we're so one.

    when i was a reporter and would put on my make-up or look in my pocket mirror before a show, my director always said i had "this look"- like i pouted my lips and did something with my cheekbones lol i never even noticed it :) reminds me of you and your pretty photographs!

    i wish i could do some outfit shots but a.)it's hard to get the depth with my camera b.)i've told you before about how funny i am with my husband taking my picture and how frustrated he gets with me lol c.)i don't get to wear "outfits" to work... boo!


    DEXTER = AMAZING! let me know when you finish it so we can discuss! :) i saw they were getting a divorce... crazy! it'll be fun to see if you can tell a diff. in the next season but talk about weird having to work together right? like if deb does "bra" scenes like she has before and by then she's his ex wife... lol

    oh i'm all about the celeb news ;) apparently! ha

  4. ooooohhhhhhh i love dexter. i just started watching it recently and we're on season four i think? did you know that the actor who plays dexter has cancer? lymphoma i'm pretty sure. i selfishly hope he gets rid of it soon so they won't cancel the show. is that awful?

  6. Again, completely in awe of the crazy deals y'all manage to find. You look so pretty in that sweater!

    I keep hearing all about Dexter but haven't watched it yet--if I had netflix I would have ordered it by now; I think I need to get on that cause everyone says it's amazing.

  7. Love this outfit! The colors are perfect on you and that sweater is totally rad! Thanks for your compliment on my post! The key to dressing nice in the cold and layers, lots of them, good leggings and sock. Make sure the key areas are covered, that is why I am so excited about the felted belts I have been making, keeps the drafts out! Sounds weird, but protecting the kidneys is very important! It is not good to get a draft up your back!

  8. Grey stripes are my favourite right now! Well, anything grey actually.

    That looks like icy, slippery snow. I don't know if I'd prefer icy snow to the ton of heavy fluffy stuff we just got, but I am jealous that you can still see the grass through yours at this time of year!

  9. That is an amazing find for a dollar! Very nice. Snow always seems to make me hugely indecisive about outfits – It's tough balancing pretty with practical, I find!

    I've heard loads of good things about Dexter, but haven't seen any yet... Maybe it will be my New Year series to get addicted to!

  10. I had no idea that Deb and Dexter split up in real life! Oh No! I feel like my parents got divorced. Or my siblings...weird.
