This dress is from one of my favorite thrift stores ever.  I used to shop there in high school and they even sell "plain clothes" so you know I went through a phase of wearing Amish girl dresses and combat boots.  They have the cutest stuff here, both clothing and household goods and man oh man, they are wicked cheap compared to Philly thrift prices.  They're wicked cheap compared to any thrift prices really.  I don't really want to share this secret place but I guess I shouldn't be greedy.  It's here, so happy thrifting if you wander there!  The dress itself is lovely, though got a little itchy as the day went on since it's lace.  Thursday was a pretty good day.  I spent the day working and then headed to school to pick up my portfolio.  My professor told me I had the most organized portfolio of the whole class, that I got an A and that she looked forward to hearing me read my work someday.  That was pretty cool.  I headed over Chic Petique to buy cat litter and food for the little foster lady and then to Yappy Hour, in Liberties walk.  I saw a cute wiener dog and drank a little sangria and hung out for a bit with my friends Chad and Lindsay.  I then headed to the liquor store and bought a bottle of red wine, Arrogant Frog Pinot Noir- maybe the best wine name ever.  I then drove into center city to pick up mr. flat bike tire husband man from work.  We came home and I made us veggie meatloaf with tater tots and homemade cheese sauce and tri-color beans sauteed with almonds and sesame seeds.  We ate and drank red wine and watched The Informant.  I'd say Thursday was a pretty amazing day.
