calivintage 's Thoughts:

you know you’ve got a problem when you’re rummaging through the backseat of the car and you find two bags with stuff you bought weeks ago, and just forgot to bring into the house!!! that’s so bad, dude.

but, it was a pleasant surprise to uncover this sweet lil j.crew dress i bought for $13 at jeremy’s. it’s a medium and their sizes run kinda big, so i bought it imagining that i’d tailor it someday. BUT who needs a tailor when you’ve just bought a million sashes?? haha.

oh, and i just pulled out my old saltwater sandals from the depths of my closet, too. i hadn’t worn them in two years, but they’re back! i want them in red and yellow now, too. they remind me of a certain, ahem, (see by chloe) sandal, so they’ve got new life in my eyes. geez.

ok! and back to the doldrums!

yes, same problem. this was still a little sheer with two layers, so i added another half-slip underneath. i don't understand why there's so many sheer clothes!!!!! who wants to wear slips when the weather is actually hot?

ok, maybe this is overboard, but i bought them in yellow, mauve, gold, and silver, but i intend to go back for one more in turquoise. it's my thrifty solution for adding color and interest to an outfit.

i think $18 for the regular and $24 for the shiny fabrics. you could make them for much cheaper, but i'd rather have instant gratification! ;)

very nice dress, it must be hot over there as you don't seem be cold outside in such a light dress, but you know we don't feel the spring yet, as it is like winter's cold most days
