my new year

I didn't realize it has been 2 weeks since I posted, shame on me. I have been busy with work, celebrating my birthday and other various lame things. Probably the most exciting happening? My first etsy purchase. I have been obsessed with the website for months and have an extensive list of favorites, but I finally had enough $ saved up to make the plunge. Pretty Little World Vintage had a buy-2-get-1-free sale that I just couldn't resist, especially since our thrift shops in this area never have a good dress selection. They arrived this past week and I debuted my first one today, at church.

these are purple tights & my report booties, sorry for the blurriness, my real camera died

I got some strange looks from people, probably because of the large shoulder pads and the bum-ruffle. My mom said "where did you get that? it looks like a dress I would have worn...25 years ago" I go to a very conservative church (with my parents), where most of the women dress like this:

...but even more boring.

I'll show you the rest of my pretty new dresses later :) I have to confess though, that now I have already made another etsy purchase and am about to make yet another...it's sooo addictive. Well, I also have the worst addictive personality ever, so it could be partially that, too.
I also made out pretty good for my birthday, new perfume (Versace Bright Crystal, which I had never heard of but it suits me quite well) a suit for school next year and some business-y clothes, and a bunch of F21 goodies. More importantly, I got a night out to cut loose with my guy and some friends which hasn't happened foreverrrr! This should be a great year for me, I was born in the year of the rat and it's finally back, and a lot of changes are happening that are making me quite happy.
Here's to my happy new year!

I still haven't bought anything from etsy I keep forgetting to go browsing through it.
Love your dress though, there's something beautifully 90s about it!
