i am in love with this dress. i needed something that would go straight from my school's graduation (i was the designated photographer...no pressure!) to an outdoor wedding at an art museum. it was just the thing. i'm also totally pumped about this clutch. fifteen cents? i mean, hello.

today was the last day of school. we had early release. i have been wanting to hit up glamourama ever since a friend referenced it when i complimented a belt she was wearing a few months ago. since i was done with work around 1:30, i decided to treat myself to some glamourama time. i.am.so.glad.i.did. i got three dresses, three shirts, a pair of a-ma-zing shoes, a bag, a belt, a pair of earrings, a bracelet and two slips for an incredibly small amount of money. it is all vintage except the belt and bag. the owner is so fun, and the two of us had a great time in her tiny shop making fun outfits. it was the perfect "it's summer!" celebration. there are a couple of dresses i must go back for. probably tomorrow. heh. about this dress...i am truly, madly, deeply in love with it. it's so comfy, and i love the colors. i'm a sucker for any kind of green, and this mint color screams summer picnic to me. it's hard to tell, but there is a turquoise leaf color that goes perfectly with the bangle. i wore it to a high school graduation tonight, and it did beautifully.

girls' night out::inspiration.

black dress: target
watercolor red strapless top: banana republic (summer 2007)
black cinch belt: off of a shirt from ross

i don't have a full-body shot of this outfit because the bottom looked sorta weird. the strapless top is quite long, and looked strange and block-y with the strip of black dress that stuck out the bottom. i really like how the top looks though so i'm gonna save the idea for further tweaking because i need to figure out someway to wear this top. i bought it the summer after ellie was born, and i was nursing and larger than i am now in several areas. it's too loose in the bust to wear alone. layered, it's got potential.
