So I've done a 70s look, a 50s look, and a mod look this past week. So what else is there to try? How about a Colonial look?!! I live very close to Colonial Williamburgs and from time to time I'll come across a period 1700 reproduction costume while thrifting. My friend Diane actually spotted this beauty for me and I fell in love with the pretty print and a-symmetrical sleeves. Of course when I tried it on it had a floor length skirt, which made it look way too costumey, so I opted to chop off about 1 1/2 feet in length to make it a short bohemian inspired frock.
Oh and I wanted to talk a little about the little weekend getaway I had! It had it's highs and lows (as most travel does) but the absolute highlight was seeing The Get Up Kids!! Talk about a fantastic group! I've been listening to them since I was about 18 and I could never get enough! Their stage presence is phenomenal and they just sound amazing. I'm so obsessed (in a good way) with the band that I had to visit the little town in Kansas where they did recording. Oh and as for the lows I totally broke my new Android phone while at the concert and the screen is just shattered. And guess who has two thumbs and thought that phone insurance was a rip off? This gal!!
