Quick post to cover Saturday, Sunday and Monday...

Saturday Night Birthday Dinner/Party


Crop Top: UO
Necklace: Forever 21
Billowy Shorts: H&M
Sandals: Seychelles 
Handbag: "vintage" Coach

Does it count for vintage if you pulled it from the archives of your closet?  The thing is 15 years old.  I vote yes.

Ladies Who Lunch



Thirftstore Brandwhore Erin turned this oversized skirt into an adorably sweet dress by adding ribbon straps and completing the look with bows and butons at one of our craft nights recently.  I sat in the corner grumbling bitterly and handstitiching stupid embellishments back onto a shirt as I watched the dress come to life, envious of her creation in comparison to my repairing.



Dress: "latin american" mumu cropped into sundress
Shoes: ubiquitous Tom's  


Being a born and bred Texan I love this authentic Mexican cotton dress embellished with bluebonnets.  My Mom purchased it on her honey moon, probably never wore it, and 30 years later it got a second life as a barely there sundress.  Perfect for quick on/off required when shopping. 

Caution Vivid Working

Cardigan: Private label brand from a store no longer (Foley's)
Dress: Betsey Johnson
Belt: seriously no idea
Shoes: Fornarina
Sunnies: Ray Ban



 I like the surreal element to this picture.
A truly antique ring, a gift from my beautiful Mimi, and a set of Tahitian Pearl drop earrings, also a gift, complete the colorful lady like ensemble for today. (I'm trying to get more accessory shots in)

My outfit made me smile today.  Not counting my multi colored accessories or bright pink lips and tri-tone flame colored hair, I had on seven distinctly different colors today.  In case you were wondering, that's where the VIVID in Vivid Voltage came from.



Finally, Erin looking like a prim 1970's ballerina in her purchase from our Sunday thrifting outing.
