This Just In...

Mikey knows I haven't been shopping, like at all lately ($30 at UO and $30 on an uber cute bag from Oasap don't count, guys), so in efforts to live up to his motto, "A happy wife is a happy life", he dropped a $100 bill into my hands just now and told me to buy a pretty dress. Immediately I went from blah, just sitting here watching Family Guy at 3 a.m., to "OMG I know just the dress!" And then I remembered that I have leftover tip money from bartending this weekend and bragged about how I was going to get two dresses. Mikey was like, "Whoa, I forgot about that money, I'll just take this back." I must have blacked out but the next thing I knew I was giving Mikey a severe Benjamin Franklin paper cut across his left nipple. There may or may not have been blood drawn and girlish cries from Mikey, but yes, I kept the hundy and am hitting up Etsy for some vintage.  :D
That is all. 

.....an hour later....
I just purchased these two beauties from Crush Vintage:
Pretty 50's gingham dress in camel with appliques on shoulder and skirt. 
And this insanely adorable 50's pink cotton lace dress.
Look at that low, scooped back! Guh <3
I think I did good. :)
Okay I really need to get to bed now. Sweet dreams, pretty birds!

  4. Love the story! Husbands can't take back gifts lol, and if they try... paper cuts are in order. Those dresses are such great finds! My favorite has got to be the second one... the scooped back says it all! Thank you for all the sweet comments on my blog, as well as the follow :) & yes, I'm a Jersey girl as well (although I think I'm pretty far from being "Jerseylicious"). My bf lives a hop, skip & a jump away from NYC, while I'm nestled between the coast and a bunch of farms lol. xo, Megs

    1. haha Yesss! There are no "Indian givers" where I'm at or there will be consequences.
      Yeah, I'm not a Jersey girl by any means (since I'm not from here originally) but I'm sooo far from being "Jerseylicious" either. LOL! It sounds lovely where you are!

  5. Wow, those are so pretty! And your story made me laugh :) There's so much awesome stuff on Etsy, I just bought a couple artsy Lord of the Rings posters from there which are now hanging on my wall. I hope your summer is going well, and hopefully we'll have more classes together next semseter!! <3

  8. I hope you bought that 50's pink cotton lace dress for me ;)

    PS I saw that mermaids animal planet special (I actually recorded it because I am a nerd) and while it was interesting I hated the "special effects" I much preferred Barbie's Mermaidia.
