Hello there! Wow, this is my 500th blog post! Kind of hard to believe it, but I hit 500 after blogging for a little over three years! When I first started blogging, I had no idea how long I'd be doing it for. I'm glad I've kept it up (I've never taken a break from it); I still enjoy doing it, and that's what matters. My style has changed somewhat since then; I still wear tons of bright colors, but back then I was still wearing some Express brand clothing, mixed in with Modcloth (I had just discovered Modcloth!), and had yet to discover Pin Up Girl Clothing, Bernie Dexter, or Trashy Diva!
I found out about my now favorite brands from seeing girls on Instagram wearing them, and wearing those brands on their blogs. I'm so grateful for these mediums, because I don't know how else I would've discovered my now favorite brands that I now can't imagine not wearing! I feel so wonderful wearing the clothing in my wardrobe, and I love creating outfits with my shoes, purses, and accessories. It's expression of who I am on the inside, basically a 1950's Rainbow Brite! I'm an optimistic, happy person by nature (I come by it naturally, as my mom is, too), and maybe that's part of why I've always been so drawn to bright colors and prints.
I want to take a momeny to thank the people who read my blog! I'm glad I've found a community of lovely, stylish ladies through blogging and Instagram, who inspire me, and make me feel not alone when it comes to my fashion interests!
Okay, on to the outfit pictures below. I'm wearing my new Retrospec'd Connie dress in Gay Parisi, which I got from Unique Vintage during their 20% off Memorial Day sale. Who doesn't love a sale?! The color scheme is amazing in this dress! I thought my lavendar BAITs would match perfectly, and they do! The dress is big on the waist in me, but fits well in the bust, and there isn't any gaping with the buttons, which is great. Retrospec'd is being carried in a lot more U.S. stores recently, which makes me happy! They are an Australian brand, and I bought my first dress of theirs at Viva Las Vegas this year. They choose wonderful vintage inspired prints.
