The 'Stang!

    This is my beloved's car.  It is a 1966 Mustang.  If you look closely, behind me, you can see my darling beloved and our adorable puppy.  I took these pictures yesterday after getting home from school and running some errands for the business.  The beloved offered to let me take pictures with his car, so of course I did!  I mean, it matches my belt!
    Speaking of the business.  It is as official as it gets (for the moment anyway).  I opened up a business banking account, downloaded quickbooks, set up my etsy page and created a Gmail address just for the business.  I'm currently running my operation out of my laptop, a rolling cooler that holds all of my ribbons and headbands and my desk w/my sewing machine on it.  I'm currently awaiting for my business checking card to come in (yay!).  It's pretty damn exciting.  OH!  And this past Saturday, I sold 10 headbands!  To people that don't know me!  It was pretty exciting.  I'm hoping to upload new pretty pictures for the etsy site sometime in the near future, so be on the lookout for that.  
    Back to the blog stuff.  So this dress.  I love it.  Know why?  Because of the pattern.  When I first saw the dress, I knew I just had to have it.  I was able to get it at a consignment store.  It was originally a size 18, WAAAAAAAAAAY too big for me.  I was able to haggle with the store owner to let me have it for $10 because I obviously had to have it fixed for me.  My neighbor, Grace, was able to slim it down and shorten it for me.  And now it's fit just for me.  Makes me ridiculously happy.  I added the belt for fit and flare and matched my earrings to the belt.  Makes me so happy. 
    Had to make a quick mention of these heels.  I adore them!  I've had them for close to three years.  They're aerosoles and are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever had.  I can wear them all day everyday for a week and my feet won't hurt.  LOVE!

Love the red and blue---so glad the dress was able to be tailored for you! My boyfriend's dream car is a Mustang...but for now he has a Focus.

Thanks caffeinerd! I am really fortunate to have such a sweet neighbor. Hoping to teach myself to sew though, so maybe next time *I'll* be the seamstress in the above scenario.
