Fad Friday~ Funky Flowers

Hello! I hope your day has been fabulous so far. Mine has consisted of saying prayers, paying bills and cleaning toilets. I still have lots to do but I thought I'd take a quick break and blog about my funky flower dress. I'm thinking it's 70's. The fabric on this dress is very heavy and unique in pattern. Take a look:)
This dress has these awesome little pockets on the front.

I love the wedge sandals with this dress. See how the pattern on the shoes mirrors the pattern on the dress.

I know this dress is obviously made for summer but if you had the right shirt to go under the halter top, it could make for a really cute winter dress as well.

It's totally funky, right!? I have to admit this dress is nothing compared to the one I recently found at my favorite thrift store. I'll be posting some pics of that one soon.

P.S. If you see a dress that I've blog about and would like to purchase it, you are more than welcome to make me an offer. I don't know if anyone else likes vintage, funky, different clothes like I do, but If you do contact me. I'd like to get to know you~ Jamie

Fad Friday~1960's Fashion

If only the words I write could be enhanced by the sound effect of excitement! Lately, I have been doing some 2012 trend research. Typically, I'm not into keeping up with the latest trends but I might jump on this bandwagon, the return of the swinging 60's. I love the big curls, the bee hive bump, the heavy eye liner, bright colors and a mix of patterns. A little bit of romance mixed with some funkiness. Check out these pics!

Whatever Wednesday~ 3 Things February

Hey Chickas!
I love Wednesdays because It's my first taker easy day of the week. Even though I should be cleaning, doing laundry, or straightening the linen closet, I'm here, blog hopping around and seeing what you fantastic ladies are up to. I've spent the last couple hours getting to know some new faces. One of the blogs I happened upon was http://sarahrooftops.blogspot.com/
(Go get to know her!)
She has come up with a awesome idea. For the whole month of February, jot down 3 things daily, that made you smile. No more, no less! Just 3! Then share it through your personal post or message me your 3 things in the comments section that day. It's a gratitude log in a way and a reminder in our busy lives, that the little things that make us smile, are worthy of being mentioned. I'm excited to share and see what 3 things made you smile today! Jamie
