Polaroids

So what if they're not real polaroids...I love that with just a few clicks my pictures can look vintagey.  

I've been rather ill.  My under-the-weather-ness ended up to be a crazy-terrible sinus infection.  My throat was a bit soar on Monday, and by Tuesday afternoon, I was absolutely miserable.  Look at my eyes...I look like death.  Hopefully my outfit was a light-hearted distraction to onlookers.  Like, "Hey, that girl looks like she's about to keel over...but she's wearing really cool tights!" 

(sigh)...one can only hope.





These are the tights I tried to style here with all black.  I like this much better.  Still a lot of black, but the floral pattern makes it all better.  I love mixing patterns, especially when one of the patterns is polka dot.



This dress was one of the many treasures I picked out of a free bag at church about 8 years ago.  I'm sure I've worn it more than the original owner ever did.  It has a lot of stretch to it and has been one of the few items to fit me through weight gains, losses, and shifts.  Somehow, it's become lopsided, being quite a bit longer in the back than the front...but I sort of digg it that way.



The next time you see these shoes,  they will be accented with a big, crocheted flower.  :)
