Hello Again!!!

After what seemed to be a really short vacation(i feel like it wasn't two weeks at all)I'm back into the swing of the things, and glad to be back to blogging. Internet was scarce where i was staying so i had to make do with a bit of web access here and there.Anyway it was great to get out of the city for a while and just rejuvenate.
while I was gone I received two packages that I was super excited about getting. Remember how I was on a bend for Victorian White Lace dresses? Well I finally found one that fits and is absolutely adorable.
Also I've been searching for the perfect briefcase(because the on i have is just too small).Ever since Alexa Chung was photographed with hers during Fashion Week I've been even more on the hunt for it because I knew that there weren't going to be any available because everyone is going to be grabbing them up. So I found this one which is was one of very very few that the gussets actually fastened(many just fastened with clips and snaps).I hoped to have gotten a strap to go with it too but i guess i could always use the strap from the old one.
Both items were a lot more than i had actually intended on spending but i figured that these were very limited pieces and there's not that many out there yet.

Pretty Comfy

This outfit is probably one of the most comfortable work outfits I've worn.The shorts although they look a bit restricting, they aren't. They're made from this stretchy rayon fabric that are superb.They give a pretty flattering shape and are great with tights. From a distance it even looks like a skirt. Anyway between the Lived-in T the shorts and the slouchy cardigan this looks screams casual chic. I love it. I wish I could wear it everyday.

One More to the List

I've been lagging on keeping posts up to date. I'll try harder to be more on top of that. I wore this fall look to work.I purchased this dress on a thrifting trip i made about a month ago. I thought I was over purchasing more floral dresses. Turns out I can't get enough of them.For some, florals are already getting to be this annoying thing that won't go away but for me I just keep racking 'em in. I can't help it. It's like going to the candy store and not sampling at least one.When I go to the thrift store its required of me to buy at least one floral dress.
