LADY IN RED



Yep, I think it's no secret that Wallace was one great little adventure. And another plus to the city? These fabulous walls you see above around every corner and alley. So of course the baby sister-in-law and I just had to take advantage and do a little photoshoot. Want to be let in on a little secret? I was holding my breath in all of these pictures. So if you were wondering why my mouth isn't open in any of these shots, 1) that's just how I smile and 2) someone must have puked all over the alley dumpers. The smell was intense. The sacrifices we make to take outfit shots is incredible. On a happier note, you see that skirt there? Yep, I bought it last weekend from an antique shop for $3. Needless to say, I've already vowed to forever vintage shop. You just really can't beat those prices. What cute finds have you found while thrifting?

P.S. I'm over here today, too. Absolutely adore my lovely Elease, so make sure to leave her some love!

  10. Red is definitely your color... and how fun is the mint green wall? love.
    Last week at Plato's Closet I got a leopard-print dress, nautical blue pin-striped shorts, a flowery tunic top and a fun beaded tie bracelet all for $16.88 w/ tax! I gotta say, I was a smitten :) I have a hard time buying retail now, unless of course, it's on clearance :)
