could this dress be thrift gem of the week/month/season?!?! i think so. i do, i do, i do. i just... get ecstatic every time i look at it. it reminds me of zebra stripe gum and carnivals... and of la boca in buenos aires, all at the same time. as i was checking out at the thrift store, the cashier commented that the dress might be slightly large on "a little thing" like me, and then she suggested that i could "just belt it" in order for it to fit more perfectly. what, lady?? you want me to belt it and destroy the perfectly boxy shape that this thing has going for it? i don't want to look like an hourglass, i want to look like a magnificently colored little box. suggestion rejected. in other news: this bag. i thrifted it a few weeks ago and have been waiting for the right time to break it out. the fabric is obviously right up my alley, but what really makes it shine is it's super awkward shape. what the heck is that weird little protruding corner doing? i love it so much.
