Famous.

Dear Fashion Diary,

Why is my hair blue? I don't know.



This pin was actually one of the pins on my wedding bouquet:
We scoured antique stores to collect all the vintage pins
then I assembled them all together on a Styrofoam ball to be my bouquet!
Now I get to say I'm wearing a part of my wedding :)








You guys. I totally saw this exact cardigan on an episode of Castle! 
 So I guess this makes me famous.


In other news, kinda wish I had worn contacts for this shoot; the glasses 
throw off the soft feminine vibe, but this'll have to do I suppose.
When I spotted this little number at Ross, I almost let
out a little yelp of delight right in the 
middle of the store.  I almost tripped over my own feet as I ran to it.
 It was the last one, but alas it was a little too big on me.
But one simply does not pass up deals this good {only $17!}
just because it's a little loose on..one.
So, when I took a trip to AZ, my sweet mom sewed it to be my size! 
{Mom, I will sing your praises forever.}

Needless to say, this dress just became my favorite spring/summer dress ever.
I will remain forever faithful until the seams literally fall apart!

Sara! I LOVE this outfit. One of my favorites on you. So pretty... and your wedding bouquet, how lovely! Great post girl!

Kultur und Stil said...

I know the problem with the glasses very well, as I'm a fellow glasses-wearer (and I really can't wear contact lenses at all because my eyes are not humid enough).
But I think you look lovely in them!
And I love your dress, so cute with all this flowers! Do you know if this brand Ross can be bought somewhere via internet?
And thanks so much for your sweet comment some days ago, I was so happy to get so many helping comments for what to wear to the wedding! It turned out to be really great, and I really could have gone with the dress I already had, but I felt great in my new H&M lace dress - that is probably my favorite deal I scored recently ;-)

That dress is the prettiest thing ever! I love how girly it is and how great it fits. I use my mum to sew lots of things to my size too.

I have the same issue with glasses as well. But you look great in your ones!
