Anyway, school started. I'm a teacher.
|dress: Savers, buttons: Martin's House of Cloth, necklace, bag, shoes: all from Savers|
This outfit is definitely a "teacher" thing because it is completely unsexy :( That's ok, I think they call this look "granny chic." The little polka dot dress was from Savers and I just love a shirtdress and all it's retro simplicity. I wanted to make it look even cuter, so I swapped out the top three buttons for those cute green heart-shaped ones. I figured it was fine to just do the top of the dress because...meh, sewing buttons is boring. The shoes aren't exactly gorgeous, but I like a round toe, a slight wedge heel, and a strap to hold 'em on (also Savers.) And I love me some opaque black tights and can't wait to wear them as soon as August turns to September. Of course, how can one call herself an educator without at least one apple accessory? Look at that cute fake gold apple outline necklace, also from Savers.
I work in kindergarten again, and I'm just getting to know my brand new children. Also, my dad made it through surgery and is doing a great job recovering.
Speaking of special needs,I've been meaning to mention my own. I am a blogger with Attention Deficit Disorder. What that means is I imagine I will post erratically, having a difficult time scheduling myself to sit down and write. For instance, the first day of school was on Wednesday and it's Sunday night now (I'll definitely give myself a pass, considering the circumstances.) I've already started making and photographing my next post about jewelry making, which I hope to post tomorrow. I also hope to put up a page about crafting with ADD/ADHD.
Since my current crazy seems to be dresses and little outfits, I might try and take more pictures of each as thrift store fashion is a component of this blog.
