laurren 's Thoughts:

Every year, a week-long music festival known as “Riverbend” takes over my city. Although I think it’s wonderful that we are able to offer this sort of thing, it makes it almost impossible to get anywhere or do anything non-festival related. In years past, my friends and I have avoided the downtown area all together, choosing instead to enjoy the festivities (I could hear the music outside my old apartment!) from the comfort of our own backyards. This year, however, my boyfriend and sweet sister-in-law were both randomly able to come into town, and instead of hiding out, we decided to get right in the middle of all the chaos by attending a non-Riverbend event going on downtown (anyone ever heard of Jesco White? Yeah. He was in Chattanooga). Despite the closed-to-traffic streets, being completely overdressed, and the twenty mintues of my life wasted on locating a parking spot, the fun we had was well worth the trouble. Hey, next year I might even brave Riverbend itself!

psssh. Who am I kidding?

Oh, yeah! And as far as fashion stuff goes, this is easily the least expensive thing I’ve ever worn. The dress is actually the lining of a dress my mom was planning to throw away. I ripped it out and then hacked off the length and voilà — a new dress! My belt and clutch were each less than a dollar and my necklace was no more than three buckaroos. The shoes (which I fondly refer to as my ‘Spice Girl shoes’), are from Forever21—and at no more than $25—are the most expensive thing I’m wearing. I win!

Gorgeous! The colour of the dress is stunning. Is it silk?

Thank you, dear! It is silk, but it's actually just the lining of an old dress! Isn't that funny?
