New Vintage Shoes

Last night was a date night to celebrate Alaric being done with his classes. We decided to walk to the destination. When we passed by The Church of the Immaculate Conception I thought it would be a good spot to take pictures.
dress: crimson & clover
I've posted this dress before but I just can't stop wearing it. It is definitely one of my favorite pieces. When I'm going out and completely out of ideas and everything I try on is blah I put this dress on and feel instantly put together.
everything thrifted at various shops
Alaric's blazer was only 50 cents. Party in da club.
I was sure these pictures turned out ok but I probably should have used flash in retrospect. I decided to make them a little smaller to negate the  blurred out and flash bombed look.

I decided to be adventurous and bring the tripod for a change of scenery. I wore this blouse to match the shine and color of my new vintage shoes which I'm quite taken with. 
These vintage flats were only $2.
dress and shoes: thrifted
Bea totally wore herself out at the park today playing with her friends. She's had quite an exciting couple of days including a sleepover with her cousin. She is turning out to be so gregarious, always talking about her little friends. She even has a "happy dance" which I have yet to capture on video.

  2. Well for starters, you are a babe and a half and your hubby is handsome! yup. night photography is so difficult. the flash washes you out when you use it.
    For finishers, those $2 shoes was money well spent. Charm school.

  4. You wear ruffles so well!

    Night photography is tough. You'd have to use a tripod to keep back the blurriness without a flash.

  8. Red dress: absolutely brilliant. I know what you mean about having something you need for when you feel "blah" and then feeling absolutely put together in it.

    Aleric's outfit is so darn cool too. You totally inspire me to dress my husband up more!!

    And I love the last shot of Bea in her stroller!! Would love to see the happy dance!

  20. That red dress is a stunner. It really is an outfit all by itself. The shorts outfit is my favorite though. It is chic and whimsical at the same time. That's a great mix if you ask me.
