3: Emergency Substitution

Sweater: H&M | Dress (as skirt): BCBGMAXAZRIA | Flats: Me Too Patty | Scarves: Kohl's | Bag: Handbag Heaven | Watch: Fossil | Bracelet: J.Crew | Earrings: F21 | Sweet green light in my hair: courtesy of my remote

The Vegas dress is back! I wore this to my friend's bridal shower this weekend, which consisted of cupcakes, a reaffirmation of my obsession with buffalo dip (recipe coming soon), and about a thousand pictures of my coMOH's (that's an official term, btw) 13-month-old, who claps like a seal and is the biggest camera whore since Zoolander. So precious.

I promised to have my OCD-organization-of-30x30 post up this weekend, but I was working on my gift for the shower...




... and although I love how it turned out, I sort of sewed right through my index finger.
ALL THE WAY THROUGH MY INDEX FINGER. So I took the weekend off.
Let me tell you, you haven't experienced horror until you've witnessed a needle sticking in through your nail and all the way out the other side.

Even worse, the washing machine ate my white jeans. I haven't decided on their replacement yet, since white jeans are hard to come by in November, but I may stop by Target and throw some printed pants into the mix. Until then, we're retitling this thing a "29 for 30." And I might be going pantsless.

    1. I DID. You know that feeling when you watch someone get hurt, and then that part of you hurts? I get that whenever I look at my finger. Yeeesh.

  5. AUTSCH (german way to express pain ;-)..), that falls in the category self mutilation, SAM! How can you do that to your finger? You are su cruel, I would have never thought that as you look like a lovely girl in that outfit :-D
    That bed quilt is so super pretty, you are really a domestic wifey huh? Hope you didn't splash it with some red colour :-P

    Love the different textures you layered your look, sehr schön( very beautiful)

    1. I feel like I'm gonna be fluent in German before long. DOUBLE AUTSCH!
      And no, somehow I didn't bleed at all on her blanket. My finger knew better than to screw with me... but I don't think we can call me domestic until I stop sewing myself ;)
