well versed in etiquette

song of the day: 'killer queen' by queen
see? i told you i was going to try and take pictures from other places around my house. this is another alley just a block up from my building. i like this one because it's lined with pretty flowers.
i bought this dress from barefoot & vintage and i couldn't wait to wear it!!! i love it so very much. the color is just perfect and i love the sleeves and pleated skirt. paige has such a great eye for vintage. i saw this on her blog before she listed it but i was smitten with another dress at the time. when she posted it on her etsy and i got to really look at it, i knew this was the one for me. i think i bought it within like 10 minutes of listing! a very good decision, i'd say.

the concrete was literally burning my arms in this picture. it was so freakin' hot! you may not be able to tell but i was barely putting my arm on the step because i was so afraid to actually get burn marks on my flesh. yeah, it was really that bad.
