Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Little dots in a big world.



Only two photos of this outfit: sorry!  I had a busy day [so my grandpa snapped these in his living room].  :)  Work, errands for work, a haircut (after these photos were taken: sorry), and then dinner and a movie with my Mama.  We saw "The Artist," which I knew was going to be incredible, and OH was it ever!  I loved it!  So did my mom.  Have any of you guys seen it???

Anyway, I was slightly nervous that this dress was "costumey" somehow, but then I thought, well, I like it, so I'm going to wear it!  The old adage "Feel good, look good!" is continually proven to me; this dress was no exception and was [happily] very well-received.  Plus, wearing your highest heels in your favorite color, a beret, and "Coco Mademoiselle" by Chanel (my new favorite scent) is just a total recipe for feeling fly! not to mention toting your vintage Louis Vuitton...


...I just read over that last paragraph. 
I feel the need to explain something: for a plain little girl with not much money living in the middle of hicksville, it's a dream come alive that I can say things like "Chanel" and "Louis Vuitton" without adding "-look-a-like" or "-knockoff" on the end.  So I really hope my name-dropping isn't all snobby-sounding...I just never even thought that someone in my financial/geographical situation would ever be able to have those sorts of things, so I can't seem to help myself!  :)
THANK YOU thrift stores!!!

  2. This does not look costumey at all! It looks like it is totally your style! That dress looks amazing with the coat and the beret really adds a touch of fun! I've been wanting to see that movie. I don't think my husband wants to see it, but it looks really good! <3
