Ruffled dress madness!


Dress - thrifted Lady Carol of NY
Shoes - Dezario

Not the most exciting photo but navy is hard to photograph with my crappy camera. You'll just have to trust me that this ruffled neckline and ruffled wrist dress with puffy shoulders looks fab in real life! I was so excited when I found this dress at Goodwill with Holly the other day! All the seams were coming apart and it had been shoddily hand-sewn in a lot of spots. I had to pretty much re-sew all the seams, but SO SO worth it (and the $1.50 I paid for it!)

I'm super excited for this weekend, assuming the weather cooperates. My friend Megan is in town from Colorado! Unfortunately her grandma died, but fortunately that gives her a reason to come back to Minneapolis! I'm also gonna see my friend Benny tonight! He's a marine and has been in Djibouti for a year (the last time I saw him was the night of my Augustache birthday party when he secretly was in town and then just showed up at my party to surprise me! I almost died!) Tomorrow I have to waitress but that's okay. It's the Kentucky Derby and I'm gonna wear a giant hat I found at a thrift store a while ago! Sunday I'm going to the In The Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater's Mayday Parade! Then it will be the first baseball Sunday of the year! Whoo! I can't wait to play baseball again! There should be a lot of friends and grilling and drinking beers and playing baseball - assuming the weather is good! What a weekend! Whooooooo!
