Whirl Wind Weekend

autumn dress2

Well, those lemons sure did turn into lemonade let me tell you! It was really nice to spend some quality time with Zach, our friends, and our pup. And the occasional cocktails made for an enjoyable extra long weekend too;) Thursday night was spent at our friends' place watching the NBC lineup with pizza and fruity cocktails. Then Friday Zach and I spent most of our day doing some retail therapy. We went to H&M, Forever21 and then grabbed lunch at Annie's Pretzels, We also felt the need to head to Thrift Store USA where I proceeded to spend about $17! On four items!! What?! Our Saturday was a little more subdued with a long walk to a community garage sale that supported the homeless. I came away with a couple of items for myself and a cute Paul and Joe blazer for my friend.

And as if the weekend couldn't get any better, I did a Vegetarian Mexican night...for all my non-veggie friends. I made home made re-fried bean enchiladas, a choppy guacamole, sangria, and fondue. The fondue left much to be desired, since I accidentally left the burner on, when I thought I turned it off, but ehh. It still taste okay, it just ended up looking like poo.

Alright, so lets get into my outfit. This is a personal style blog afterall. Since I wanted to pretend it felt like fall I figured I'd go ahead and wear a very autumnal dress. I found this Anna Sui for Target dress at Goodwill and went giddy like a school girl over the print. This silk dress was originally like $60 or something and I ended up getting it for $5. With tags still attached. Love my Goodwill finds. Then I pulled the yellow tones out of the dress by adding mustard accessories.
