A dress and a DIY

Last summer, while up in Portland, Maine. My friend Hayley and I went to see my favorite band Guster in concert.The lead singer from one of the opening acts was wearing this dress and I just fell in love with its pea green color and flowy jersey fabric.The next day while exploring shops in cute downtown Portland, we found the exact same dress and I bought it on the spot.

Outfit Details: Jacket...Thrifted, Dress...Shop in Portland, ME, Sunglasses...H&M, Espadrilles...Thrifted, Purse...Levi's
So I'm a big do-it yourselfer. I like to fix things and make them pretty. The heel on one of my espadrilles broke and I basically managed to cobble the thing back together so I could wear them once again. I also recently found this lamp at the Salvation Army and it reminded me of one that my grandmother owned. I loved the milk glass shade, but the faux brushed nickel finish left something to be desired. I ran to the hardware store and located this sweet tangerine spraypaint et voila new lamp. I just love it.I love lamp(sorry I had to reference Anchorman).

  9. Love your blog. The colour of that dress is really unusual, and good work with the lamp, I'd never have thought of that.
