Vintage Gucci dress (with pockets) It is without a doubt orange. ifone says red, it's a liar.
Necklace and cami H&M
Earrings got on honeymoon in Mexico because everyone buys tanzanite in Mexico I think. I believe it is a law.
I got this dress on Etsy 2 years ago. I have complete fit dysmophia. I have no idea what will fit me. I have measurements but I don't apply it correctly to fit. Which is why I don't buy clothes online. I always get it wrong. I got this dress and it was enormous.
We hacked off about 6 inches. (by we I mean I tried it on and said where I wanted it then Dave hemmed it because he would just have to fix the hem job I do. Straight lines and me ARE NOT BUDS) I pinned the front back, ripped out the shoulder pads and fixed the arms. The waist still isn't right. If I wear a belt and pull the fabric to the back I don't have to take it in because that is way beyond my ability.
For makeup I did peach everything. I don't have lip product on here though.
So in other news... We got the apartment! Talk about jumping through hoops. I had to give my third grade teacher, favorite soda brand and every number associated with my name in the entire life. The whole process wasn't terrible because we had set out what we wanted and didn't even look if it didn't meet our requirements and this was perfect. But the approval process was a bit stressful. I have immactualte credit but you honestly have to have 83924893 people vouch for various aspects of your life. If it was my house I'd probably be worse though honestly. We are moving 2 month ahead of schedule so the time frame is a bit crunched but we can do it. I've done it 17 times before sucessfully. We've just been where we are 7 years so there is a lot of STUFF.
AND it has a KITTEN PORCH
Completely enclosed with no door to outside so they can play and play and play and have EIGHT (10 but two point inside) windows on the porch alone to fight over. They have 2 in our entire apartment now. They will have 15 total now?
Now to obsess about decorating! Which I've never done in the 14 years I've had my own place. It all has the gram seal of approval. She said after I texted her the pics "Oh I can't wait to stay overnight there" Never happened! EVER! woooo. (gram approval is as elusive as the fountain of youth, which she swam in. seriously. It's in Florida. Who knew!)
