dress: gap, old (similar) // shirt: urban outfitters (similar) // shoes: f21 // necklace: thrifted // glasses: c/o (exact) // bag: thrifted, ME // belt: thrifted, VT

A quick post -- this is what I wore a few days ago for packing, and then out to grab a bite to eat with friends. Truth be told, I ended up swapping the necklace out for a scarf that I tied around my neck like I was an stewardess from the '60s. I think I liked that iteration slightly better than this one, but didn't manage to snap any pics -- as is, I only got two of this version! At this point in the week (and t minus 4 days 'til we move cross-country), I'm amazed I'm able to remember to put on clothes at all. I've been living in a pair of too-big black skinnies and a gray t; perfect for packing, but not quite blog-worthy.

Oh, and these glasses? I got these c/o last week, and I really love 'em. Ordering glasses online is especially scary, but I actually like these more than my others (last seen here). These are lightweight, don't fall off my face, and help me see better -- basically, the main things I look for in a pair of specs. Plus, they're well-made but inexpensive. If you're in the market, check out Firmoo's promo: you get the first one free (you cover shipping; new customers only).

And, just a heads-up: I'm sorry to say, but I think it's unlikely I'll have time for blogging until late next week. Isn't moving the worst? Thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post -- I can't wait to see all your recent looks. I'll have a lot to read through once I get back to a regular schedule!

  14. WAIT WAIT - before you go please tell me who cut your hair? I can't find a decent curly-hair cutter in the Bay Area!

    1. I go to Public Salon -- there's one in the Tenderloin and one up by Washington Square Park; it's sort of hit-or-miss, but you get a can of beer while you wait? I've got my priorities in order, please and thank you. Let me know where you end up!

  15. Lovely outfit! I am loving your dress!


  16. I have to say, I really like this outfit. Your style is so retro and classy and fun.

  17. I know I already commented on this post, but, I wanted you to know that I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Check out the rules here:
