Comments/Compliments/Complaints: Several- a client said I looked cute and she liked my purple socks, a few strangers and some gross dude whistled and yelled hey mommy from his car to which I replied with a heavy eye roll.

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.
