Accessories: I actually didn't wear the socks pictured- just black vinyl shoes
Holy hot in May! Good thing I got this dress last week at Thrift Fair. I wore these socks for a whole fifteen minutes but it was too damn hot to keep them on! I spent the day working lots and sweating lots. After work I went thrifting for a hot second at Thrift Fair and Circle Thrift and got four dresses. Michael and I shared a flight at Kraftwork- I had a Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout (amazing!) and a Liefman's Kriek. Nothing like 8oz. of beer to get you tipsy! We came home and I made us frittatas and we watched some television. It was a lovely night.

So yesterday marked the beginning of the last one hundred days. I've gone full circle in my blog journey. I'll be completely a full year and going back to my roots of one hundred days. I know it will fly by. I know I'll be happy to pare down my wardrobe and to wear certain dresses again but it will be bittersweet. As of right now I have about seventeen or so dresses left. I intend to make some, have some made, attend clothing swaps, borrow, trade and probably still buy some dresses to complete the last one hundred days.
I like this dress even though it's too big. It must have been for its previous owner as well because she sewed some ribbon onto it to form a strap. Thanks whoever you are! I still added a cute puffy sleeved t-shirt underneath since the top part was a little weird. I also wore some cute purple knee socks and added this belt since it was a little bit sack like without it. I read the latest issue of Real Simple last night and learned this cute hairdo. I dig it. It wasn't perfect but I'll get it. I should've taken a picture of it. Oh well.
I slept late today, probably because I stayed up super late on a coffee high. I woke up, had some coffee, got dressed and left the house without eating. No good. I worked a bit and then headed to Essene for some sustenance. I wanted sushi but they had no veggie variety. I opted for the hot food bar but turned out it was kind of ick. Oh well. I finished working and then headed to the thrift store for my weekly dress binge. It was a good haul. I got seven dresses and a cool vintage piece of furniture for $32. Word. I then met Michael and two of the three Steves at Kraftwork for a drink and some dinner. I had a flat bread pizza with goat cheese, arugula and dates. It was quite yummy but a bit expensive for what it was. Oh well. I also had a yummy porter but only 8oz because I hadn't eaten much.
After dinner we came home and dillydallied before heading to Cape May for the weekend, leaving the house to the Steves. Scary, scary.
Accessories: Green knee socks, black flats, leopard print cardigan, rat brooch
I like this dress. I bought it in black and red and now I wish I had purchased all of the colors they had- pink, blue, green, etc. If I go back I'll try it in a medium as I was yanking up this top all damn day. I added my favorite little rat brooch that Michael bought me for my 30th birthday and this awesome Old Navy cardigan. The knee socks are from the dollar store and you can bet I'll be returning to purchase them in multiple colors. I'm crushing on knee socks a lot right now.
Thursday was a good day. I woke up and though relaxed I was still in a bit of a funk about handing in a writing sample that evening. As I was doing the dishes an idea came to me and I reworked a story in about an hour. It was kind of an awesome morning. I got dressed and spent the day working then headed to Kinko's to make twelve copies of the first draft of my story inspired by a poem and the unfinished outline. I then went to Mugshots for a coffee and a savory muffin and finished reading two stories from Nine Stories by J.D. Salinger. I am loving this whole reading at the coffee shop thing. It feels very 90's and makes me feel smart, or at the very least enriched.
I went to class and it was amazing. We spent the first hour talking about "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" and then the last hour discussing the two works of fellow students. After class I felt super alive and awesome, which may partially be to blame on the giant iced coffee I drank. I came home and yammered on about it all to Michael. I made us a yummy, healthy dinner of Basmati rice, tofu and cashews and spicy sauteed spinach. We watched tv until he fell asleep and then I watched the season finale of Grey's Anatomy, which was amazing. Yay for an awesome day.
Accessories: Grey tights, black rain boots, blue cardigan, grey tights
I hated this dress once I got it home and I hated it even more once I cut it off and made it too short and uneven. Oh well. I left the house in some sheer black tights that were extreme quitters and by the time I walked down a long corridor to an apartment in a fancypants building they were down at my knees. Luckily no one was around to see the ridiculousness of it all. And double luckily I had a spare pair of tights in the car that I changed into. Yikes. I threw away the sheer pantyhose and will throw this dress away as well. Boo. I wore a blue cardigan with this ugly mess and then threw on a coat to hide it all. I guess I sort of cheated but whatever.
Wednesday was a weird day of being super late again. This week has been traffic heavy and I have not enjoyed a second of it. I also really need to learn how to get myself out of the house at a reasonable time. Though this week it hasn't even mattered.
After working I came home and hung out with Michael for a hot second before he went skateboarding. After he left I got working on my homework. I read some J.D. Salinger, read the works of two fellow students for a workshop class and then worked on my own piece that was due to hand out to the class for a workshop on Monday. It was terrifying. I worked on a few different stories and two outlines but ultimately wasn't thrilled with anything. Michael came home and I gave up for the night so we could take our very first bath in our amazing bathtub. It was just what we needed. Super relaxing after a long and stressful day. I foresee a lot of amazingly relaxing baths in our futures.
