song of the day: 'listen to your heart' by roxette
i had totally forgotten about this song but then a couple danced to it last night on 'so you think you can dance' and i immediately downloaded it. you better believe i'll be jamming out to roxette today.
i had been stalking this dress on etsy for a long time and then last week it went on sale. woohoo! you know i hit the commit to buy button so no one could snatch it away. i love the color, the shiny stripe, the sleeves....it's such a great dress. albeit a little see-through. last night i was standing in the sunlight coming in our front windows and matt said, 'did you wear that dress like that all day? you know you can see through it.' whoops. i didn't really know. and yes i did do a little alteration on it. i made it shorter and took up the skirt on the sides because i felt like it was a little too flowy. i like it a bit better with a slimmer skirt because the top is kinda big. matt even said it was his favorite vintage dress, probs cuz it's basically transparent.
oh, and to clarify, cheap thrills is a store about 30 minutes away that sells both vintage and used clothing. it's awesome. you can sell your clothes and either get store credit or walk away with cold hard cash. and the manna center is a thrift store here in town that i go to A LOT that has half price wednesday and i get a ton of my stuff there.
