on friday afternoon a little gold bird was victimized right under my nose, quite literally. while i was busy making faces at my husband, i heard a crunch, i heard a crack, and i realized that a crime had been committed. one of my little blue-eyed brooch birds had been assaulted and was lucky to escape the attack with its life, but only one of its two eyes. it didn't take me long to identify the attacker thanks to exhibit A:
jacket: american eagle // lace dress: h&m via ebay // neon belt: gap // bird brooch: vintage // sandals: aldo
a few things about this outfit: first, i almost died when i saw that i'd won this dress on ebay. i've been wanting a lace dress for so long, but seeing as how i'm a cheapskate, i wasn't willing to pay what most of them went for. and then i found this one. $17 later, i'm the proud new owner of this brand new dress with a €30 price tag. next, i've had this neon yellow belt for years, and although i love it so much, i've never been sure of how to wear it because i'm pretty low key and i didn't want it to make me stand out so much. i guess this is another reason i really needed this dress.
so how was your weekend? mine was nice, and i'll tell you more about it tomorrow! but until then, be sure to enter the giveaway i've got going on from printrunner.com for 100 postcards with your very own design!
