Friday the 13th

 Dress - Carmen Marc Valvo, thrifted
Cardigan - Rugged Warehouse
Wedges - Jeffrey Campbell Clinic

Well, what a wake-up! As I went to step into the shower, I was greeted by a half-dollar sized spider. Happy Friday the 13th!

I couldn't wait another day to wear my super awesome thrifted dress. It's so bright, so comfortable. I swear it's not quite as highlighter-neon as it appears here, but it is really bright. Some of the things that won me over about this dress was the incredible hour-glass fit, and that the appliques continued all the way around the back of the dress. I have no idea how I'm going to style this again, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.  Thanks to whoever donated this to Goodwill!

I'm planning on a weekend full of 2 week old wobbly kittens, movies, catching up on homework, and hopefully being able to revisit my not-novel/novella thing. It's been way too long since I've even considered writing. Tumblr is just way to interesting... and I don't even have a tumblr.

  1. Wow, this just brightened up my whole afternoon! It is so dreary and yuck weather wise here and seeing this is like sunshine on my computer! Yes I know that sounds horribly cliche. I really do like this look though and it fits you so well!

    Give those baby kitties lots of love for me!

    1. Hellzyes. I smooshed it with a mitt of toilet paper and flushed it. *shudder* I was grateful I'm paranoid and always check the tub before stepping into the shower.

  6. I love the color in the pic, I'm digging the neon lately. Your eye makeup looks great too! BTW, re: going back to pink hair - I always get the itch to change my hair up, so I say go for it.

  7. You really, really got your money's worth with that amazing dress, and you have completely rocked it with the styling. Love the eye make-up, too.

    We have a Rugged Wearhouse here, and sometimes I get pretty amazing deals on accessories like belts and earrings. It's very hit and miss though, one of those places you have to run into frequently to see what fell off the truck since the last visit.

    If spiders are little, I get a dustpan and deliver them outside. If they are big, I run like hell and get Dear Hubby to handle it :P

  11. Wow, what a fantastic dress! That is such a score, Megan! I love the colour on you.

    Nice work on the eye make-up! I am so envious - now that I'm old and wrinkly, cats' eye liner doesn't work as well (boo).

  16. This is an absolutely amazing, amazing dress. The color is jsut fantastic on you. I like navy blue with this color as well as black. The dress fits like it was made just for you.
    You have truly beautiful eyes. There are so many colors in them. I envy you. Mine are just brown with none of the beautiful highlights you have.

  17. Wow, that dress is just beautiful. Very nice for spring. I wear pink or orange with green...I kinda look like a fruit salad, but whatever. I never get sick of super bright colors.

    Why can't I get cat-eye makeup to look like that? Tutorial?
