Please Excuse My Dog, She Wants to Get Signed by Ford Modeling


I wore this on Thursday. This funny adult at school looks me up and down when we go to an assembly that afternoon.

Adult (after much consideration)
: Admirable.

Thanks? On Wednesday I was playing with a kids pair of crutches, and in the process just about messed up my shin to the point that walking was really difficult for 2 days. Ironic right?

My aunt got me this dress at the Fairfax Flea market. Its so lovely I just want to scream. A floral dress is exactly what I need right now.

A reader asked who my style icon was, simply said, Audrey Hepburn. She was so gorgeous, lovely and sophisticated. My fascination with her started when I was little and my mother would cut my bangs like Audrey. In my opinion, like a good little black dress, she is timeless.

LOL @ "admirable." That comment is "interesting."

Casey said...

I'm loving the print on your dress. And I love getting random reactions on outfits from strangers. I work at Urban Outfitters and sometimes older people will come in and say the strangest things about our clothes. It's quite amusing.

Aww I love these florals! What a beautiful print. Oh Audrey, she never ceases to impress.

roxanne said...

i've been away from the blogosphere against my will for awhile now - so glad to see you're still knocking it out of the park everytime with your outfit posts! the floral print is great, and that dog is going to get signed very soon, i bet. p.s.: audrey hepburn was my first icon too, love the video!

Emily said...

Beautiful dress! :)

The Clothes Horse said...

I use a Precise V5--it's a pilot and the extra fine tip...I'm sure there's better ones for drawing, but it's what I am attached to.
P.S. I'm watching Sabrina right now...just thought it was fitting considering the video in your post.

Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of style and grace. You couldn't have picked a better style icon.

The picture with the red dog and your pooch (where you have your hand on his head) looks like an album cover. Keep that in mind if you ever record music!

Anonymous said...

your camera takes amazing pics!

Sarah Perch said...

I must say that I love the fabric of the dress you're wearing here, I had a dress in a pattern very alike that when I was about seven years old and I've been searching but never found anything like it again :/

and again, of course, wonderful pictures :')
