I am so sorry that I’ve been pretty MIA lately. Things have been really busy with WORK WORK WORK, my mom going to NY and CA for job interviews (please wish her luck!!!!), lots of cooking (yay summer grilling), and general life stuff…
Anyway, this week’s TST I just could not miss. I am not one to wear a lot of metallic clothing so I went with OHH SHINY stuff such as my sequined cardigan, my metallic jelly flats, and my blingy necklace.
Outfit Details: Dress: Cynthia Rowley, Lovely hand-me-gift from Justine Cardi: Ann Taylor, Thrifted (gift from mom) Shoes: Melissa + Vivienne Westwood, Poshmark Necklace: Jewelmint
If there ever were a time when you’re encouraged to wear all the glitter, sparkle, sequins, etc in your wardrobe – it’s without a doubt New Years. I am still looking for that perfect shimmery sequin dress or top, so here I did my best with what I have and I think it turned out not too bad…what do you think?
What do YOU like to wear to ring in the new year? Are you a fan of glimmery things too? oh and just in case I don’t get to say it later, HAPPY NEW YEAR y’all! Whoa, it’a almost 2014 already?!?!?
Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Thrift Style Thursday crew:
on this day 4 years ago, I married Wesley. We got married at the Hillsborough, NC courthouse and our ‘wedding’ unconventionality didn’t stop there – I wore a bright pink dress and Wesley’s “best man” was a woman!
We try and celebrate our special day but because of the timing, our anniversary usually falls on or around thanksgiving day. We got lucky this year that Thanksgiving is a bit later than usual, so on Friday we decided to go out 2 days early. We had a fantastic dinner date at the Angus Barn in Raleigh. It’s THE restaurant in the area if you’re celebrating.
here’s what I wore 😉 I really liked my outfit and wanted to share.
we took a quick selfie before leaving home:
Angus barn is a huge restaurant! My favorite time to go is close to Christmas, they go all out decorating and I love it!
When you leave, they give you the recipe for their famous Angus Barn chocolate chess pie. Words cannot describe how delicious this pie is.
and lastly, here’s a photo of our actual ‘wedding day’ at the magstrate’s office.
THANK YOU for sharing this special day with me. Hope you all had a good weekend.

I hadn’t planned on buying anything but went into Target looking for shampoo for hubby and left with this super cute skirt – and it was on clearance! I loved the color (mustard) and the fun print right away, when I put it on, I really loved the style too 😉
I can’t believe tomorrow’s monday again… sad face.
