dash of tulle

i found not one, but two of these tulle and silk numbers the other day while thrifting.  both were in my size, but the other (a tan color) was deemed by my sister to look much more like chicken feathers.  so the shirt is basically a scratchy silk tee with rows of tulle attached to it.  even though i typically wear only soft things, this scratchasaurus might just be sticking around for awhile.

dotty wears pants

i went out a-thrifting with my sister yesterday in search of workish tops and ended up bringing home two new friends.  

top: freshly thrifted kensie
pants: j. crew
flats: steve madden
sunnies: rayban

it's become really clear that i've developed a bit of a crush on these pants.  i only brought one other pair of work pants with me this summer and they have yet to be ironed.  so yeah, the pants so far:

dash to boulder city

today i spent a very long afternoon in meetings in boulder city. the highlight of the day was when someone thought the word was "vegetable" instead of "vestibule."   anywho, i'm not sure that this cowboy shirt was quite appropriate, but i'm totally enamored with pearlized snap buttons. 

chambray cowboy snappyness: thrifted in vegas (similar)
gray i'm-so-totally-a-grownup skirt: banana republic
skinny belt: leftover from a pair of awful pants
heels: nine west (exactly)

dotty finds some pliers

this weekend the boy went to go float down a river in colorado, so i dug all the pliers out of my sister's toolbox and stuck things together until this happened.  being a smallish person, chunky necklaces are always too big or too heavy for me, so this way i could stop the madness before that happened (or i could stop when we ran out of episodes of say yes to the dress to watch)

dash to seattle

we squeezed in a trip to the pacific northwest between our midwest-southwest roadtrip and starting our summer jobbies. the food was absolutely amazing....lark and molly moon's and serious pie and breakfasts at citizen and complimentary miniature pineapple cupcakes at the hotel.  nommmmm.
