Long Time No See

Eh it's busy busy busy here at the Gallery and the Michigan Design Center, we have Sample Sale going on. And in honor of sale I made an outfit under $50 (also in honor of Kyla from Blue Collar Catwalk). So here it is.









{ Materials Used }


Collar } Vintage Fur
Sweater } Vintage, my mothers
Dress } Vintage Anne Fogarty (will be selling cause it's too big)
Belt } Vintage, my mothers
Tights } Kohls
Booties } UO, on sale

The dress I found over the summer at an estate sale, it's a beautiful Ann Fogarty day dress with full pleated skirt... Absolutely lovely. But it is a little big on me in the chest (no bewbs here!). Cat from Midwest Mayhem borrowed the dress for her birthday dinner and she looked amazing in it!

Anyway that's it, just a quickie!!! Haha! I'm excited to also say not only do I have my wedding dress but I think I'm almost done with my bridesmaids, then I'm meeting an artist who up-cycles vintage suits to get our groomsmen looking dapper!

Oh and thanks to Groupon I also got my hair did yesterday at a fancy salon! I got some highlights to match my ends. I hate that my roots grow in dark blond and the ends bleach out to light blond... And I hate paying for my hair cause it takes the stylist forever cause my hair is super super thick. But she thinned it out and texturized it, it's so soft and pretty. Took over two hours!! haha! I also bought this sea salt spray stuff to maybe give my hair some texture... Oh my hair. I do nothing with it. This is the first time I went to a salon in over 2 years, and it was three years ago when I got some highlights to match my ends. But I am happy my hair has grown out quite a bit since last year, it was at my shoulders this time last year!

And sorry for my terrible ability to write. I'm brain dead and will continue to be for the week.

Huggles,
Lauren

Your hair looks angelic. Seriously, you are so gorgeous. And that outfit! For under $50 it is seriously one of my fave outfits on you! I want those booties badly though. JELLY. <3

oh my gosh I totally was all "look at her gorgeous hair in these shots!" and wow that's great. I have super thick hair too which is why I would never trust a stylist with my hair. . .I always have done my own hairstyling and cuts since I was 8.

This skirt is so pretty and I love all the colors in your outfit and the fur wow. can't believe you paid only ten bucks for it!!
