Margaret, are you grieving
Over Goldengrove unleaving?
Leaves, like the things of man, you
With your fresh thoughts care for, can you?

Hey, don't look at my hair like that! It's not what you think. I never went to Ross Dress for Less and acquired the Bumpit set. Anyway, if I had, it was only 5 dollars. There's no way I wedged that thing in my hair soaked in Suave for Men hairspray. Oh you. So suspicious.
* About that jacket... A customer returned this yellow goodness to the store and I was all over it. I wanted it since it came in brand new, so I was pretty excited to acquire it for a measly $2 (I had a small giftcard.) Imagine my surprise upon its first wearing when I found movie tickets and seashells in the pockets! So there you are... used.

Have a lovely day, everyone!

  4. Hi I've just found your blog and I want to say I absolutely love it! This outfit is gorgeous - seems to match perfectly with the weather :) I really think used clothes have a certain extra something to them (as strange as that sounds - i'm a big charity shop lover!) how cute that the pockets had seashells in them! Your photogrpahy is beautiful too. I'm your newest follower :)
