West End girl

"In a West End town, a dead-end world
The East End boys and West End girls."

I heard the Pet shop Boys as I was getting ready... except for I thought the lyrics were..."something or another.... western girls" So, I had previously thought that the song fairly matched my outfit for the day. After googling though, I realized it wasn't. Ah, well it was nice while the time lasted.

Marvin and Bow

Marvin and Bo are nuts that my friend and I got from a tree on campus. They were fantastically spikey but then they dried up and the chestnut popped out. :D

My tie bow I made using scrap fabric from a dress that I re-did. I saw a cute picture of a girl with a tie bow and it inspired me to do my own. My sleeveless collared shirt is kind of like a hand-me-down from a lady at church. I've got a bunch of other ones to wear except I think our heat wave is over in a few days. :'(

You can easily make a tie bow with any kind of ribbon or fabric or thin scarves. They can be really long, down to the waist of the pants or short like a bow tie. Tie them onto a collared shirt all buttoned up and you are sure to get a compliment on your creativity. :D

Hot wweeeek.

Wore this little happy dress to school. T'was simple. I need'ta do something with ma hair. I "do" my hair in the morning but the angle of the camera kind of catches the worst angle of my hair.. and it looks as if I just woke up.. ha! it's super poofy.

Well, this week is like heat wave week. So, I must enjoy not layering as much as I can till it's layering time (my favorite time of the year for getting dressed). We have days up to 90 which is super weird for the END OF SEPTEMBER.

Dress: Thrifted...redid by me.. but it's Lilac's. Clogs: Thrifted.

Thrited Trinkets

Found the funnest things at the thrift store by my college.

There was a set of eight of this really fun drinking glass. I didn't need eight so I just got one... but I love this... I'VE GOT A FACE ON MY CUP!!
I also got this neat little key holder. It is kind of restricting because I can only hold 4 keys on it and I can barely clasp it with all the keys inside. It's really fancy though, and no one carries their keys in a pouch...

For no other reason.

I have quick story of the shorts. A few hours ago then my mom asked my youngest sister if she could fit in these (the ones I am wearing) would fit her because they were too small on her. She tried them on and was quit swimming in them. I told her, "Hey, lets trade shorts." I had been wearing my dark green shorts that were definitely too small and had been too small for a while. My sis pulled the drawstring and now they fit her and follow her school's strict dresscode. I put on hers and they fit perfectly and matched me. Now the thing is, my mother is a lot smaller than I; smaller feet, smaller stature, smaller body. How can these shorts be too small for her but fit me??? Whatever, I am keeping them.

Shorts: Mother. Halter: Gift. Hat: Originally Grampa's.
