Summer is here! My last day of school was today, and I am excited! It still hasn't totally set it that I won't have to go back to school for a while, but I'm sure It will settle in soon.
Lately a certain look has been popping up in my head, and I very much hope I could possibly find something like it.

Cardigan, with floral dress, awesome sandals, and an over the shoulder bag.

The floral dresses:

I found this on ebay.

An Anna Sui Ruffle Dress. Not the best floral, but it still fits into the picture in my mind.

This is probably my most favorite floral dress, It's Stella McCartney. I'm in love!

A different kind of floral, but still, nice. Moschino Cheap & Chic

This is the Elizabeth and James "Petunia Dress." If I'm not mistaken this is the the line from Marky-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I've seen some of their pieces, and they're really quite nice, like this dress, especially the back of the dress (below).

Free People "Pretty Poppies" dress, and I agree, very pretty.

Another favorite of mine, this Kimichi and Blue "No Direction Home" dress. It also comes in a pale color, but I love the bold colors on this one, it looks so classic. Something I would have seen at a wedding.

The Sandals:
Alberta Feretti


A pair from topshop, that I don't believe they carry anymore, bummer.

And of coarse the gladiator sandals, beyond gladiator sandals. Ohh, how beautiful they are, one can only dream!

I really like this pair, and they really fit the name, the "Everyday Gladiator." They seam versatile enough to wear everyday.

I also love these, because of the leathery, authentic look they have, they're awesome. "Sunset Hurache Sandal"

The Cardigans:
I'm just choosing some I like, not that will necessarily be right for the dresses above, though I’m sure some will be.

I didn't know Shopbop had their own line, but this is a piece from their.

A Vince cardigan.

This is the Simply Vera line Vera Wang did for Kohls

Also the same line and same cardigan, but I love this color so I had to post it.

The later days cardigan.

The once and for all cardigan.

Basic long cardigan.

American Apparel will always have great cardigans, in any color you can imagine.

The bag:
This one is great if only it wasn't $225

On another note:
Saturday Night Live has been so funny for the past 3 weeks! Last week was the season final and it was with Jim Carrel.

Digital Short

And the week before that was Shia LaBeouf

Oh SNL makes me laugh.

And for the last note, a film: THE G0-GETTER
I usually go to the movies page on Yahoo and watch new trailers and today I saw the trailer of "The Go-Getter."

As for a story line, I have no idea. I don't even know what to think of it. But I want to see it anyways.


This is my first post of summer, and it feels great. Now that I have more time I can post more often, and of course that leaves more time for thrifting (I've just now realized that we bloggers have made thrifting a verb, impressive the power we have!), and I will defiantly keep you updated on my finds!

Until next time, have a great summer bloggers!

Trying out . . . new things

My work load at school has become much lighter in the past week so I am trying to post more often. In my posts I'm trying out something new (hints the title of the post) and posting a bit more about celebrities, just because I love seeing it on other blogs, so why not try it out on my own! Here Goes . . .

With my extra time I was able to go to the movies and so last night I went and saw "Iron Man" which was surprisingly good!

And the lady who has been all over blogs lately, Gwyneth Paltrow was in the film. Gwyneth Paltrow seems very simple and even sometimes boring, but she's always so beautiful. And her acting jobs are quite diverse, which I like to see in an actress, rather than the kind that play the same part in a billion different films.

This is possibly my favorite photo of Gwyneth, she looks stunning here.

On the latest episode (Sandwich Day) of "30 Rock" I saw Tina Fey wearing this red dress and thought she looked amazing!

Then I saw Cameron Diaz wear what I'm pretty sure is the same dress at the premiere of "What Happens in Vegas", and she looks great, too.

But who wore it better?

Already thinking about winter . . .
I really liked the winter jacket Juno wore. I'm thinking it would be a nice fall/winter jacket for next year.

This girl on face hunter has a version of it, though I would want the jacket in the original red color, though the yellow doesn't look bad at all.

Link to the past:
Only 2-posts ago I showed mustard-colored tights from AA, and when I saw this girl on facehunter wearing them, I just fell even deeper in love with them. I think they look awesome!

I had this "ombre" dress from topshop in an older post, and was reminded about it when a friend commented on it. Sadly since we have no topshops in the U.S., it's hard to know if something will look right if we order from London. I saw this girl on face hunter, and was quite happy with how good it looks on! She wear's it winterized, but it could defiantly be worn as a summer look as well, and probably wouldn't be too hard to find a white version and tie-dye for those of us who don't want to order.


Hopefully I can get into the habit of posting simple short posts which then I could post more often, but eitherway I will post soon!
