I'm a personal shopper..almost...

A while back, I was wearing one of my vintage finds [last seen in this blog here], when a lady on the bus stopped me and asked about my dress [which btw my friend said it reminded her of Bethlehem...confidence booster that was...]

Long story short, I decided to shop for her and I have been trying for what seems like an eternity to send her the pics of her clothes but it seems that her email address has conspired against this transaction!!

Not to be deterred, I decided that I would do a post feat her clothes and what's that? crisis averted you say?
 yes I am a genius aren't I?

Anyhoo, these really aren't for you all to enjoy but that's the thing about the world wide web eh? So go right ahead and...
Enjoy

I had a hard time letting go of this one...it's just so pretty!! and obviously after I did my usual button embellishments, I literally had to bury it in the BACK of my wardrobe to prevent me from wearing it myself the very same day!!




the next is a coral skirt with a green blouse. Not necessarily to be worn together but I did it anyway just so she could see the vision. 

Ok confession: AGAIN, I tried to keep this outfit. Fortunately for her the skirt was a smidgen to big for me.
Personal shopper? putting the customer first? yep! that's me!!


outfit 1: vintage - dress came with a diff belt but I changed it up because the blue one just looked better...
outfit 2: clutch and belt not included...

:) thanks love! I just love pretty dresses. What I don't love is fighting with the surprisingly tough grannies in store before I can buy them! Lol
