that's all she wrote

Dress, Shoes, Belt & Jewellery- Thrifted; Bag- Gifted; Nail Polish- A-ha! Moment by Sephora OPI

 It’s no secret that I love colour & plaid so when I stumbled upon this dress for only $5 while thrifting I knew I would be adding it to my expansive dress collection.
  

I also couldn’t resist thrifting these shoes even though they gave me more blisters and leg indents from the wrap-around straps- oh when will I learn? (hopefully before I have to get Victoria Beckham style bunion surgery! 

{My friend gifted me this bag from a work trip to Vegas- I love that the sassy M&M and I share a name- and attitude!}
  And that’s all she wrote, for once I am at a loss for words (I wonder if it's a coincidence that I was wearing plaid the last time I was at a loss for words!) except to say unfortunately I left my DSLR camera at work and had to resort to my rinky camera as the photo quality is visibly poorer.

  13. A $5 gorgeous thrifted dress? Damn, you're good!

    That's such a cute bag. I used to like the green M&M best, but now I think I like the brown one better. She's the thinking woman's M&M. :)

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
