two dollar dress YES

I just want to drink my tea in peace, thankyouverymuch.  Naptime, which usually commences at 12 pm, commenced at 2 pm (!) today.  Oh, dear me.  But that's okay because I love my shoes.  Yes, shoe love compensates for teething babies.  Also, this dress? Here, let me get pic of just the dress:
Now let's start again: this dress, cost me TWO dollars.  Yes.  A dollar ninety-five to be exact.  New, too.  Crazy, hey?  I seriously got some GREAT deals the other evening.  This dress, a shirt for my husband, a pair of grey jeans, and...and...oh my gosh...I can't remember.  This is how you know you shop too much ladies; because it was only Thursday night.  Something...  Something.  What was it?  Oh, I remember, a shirt for my sister-in-law! Phew.  That's not so bad not remembering as it wasn't for me!  Though that was a close one.  I almost had to check myself into shopping rehab there!

Now what was I saying?  Right: I got all this for 12 dollars and 10 cents.  Crazy, hey?  It was a good haul even by my standards.

But enough about shopping.  I gotta go watch Sex in the City drink tea and eat chocolate.  Yes, life's hard.

outfit details:

socks: I don't know
shoes, naturalizer: $30
dress, rw & co.: $1.95
leather jacket, danier: $300
belt: a gift
necklace, smart set: $2
hat: bought it ten years ago, probably for ten bucks or so

  11. This is great! The hat, the jacket, the $2 dress, THE SHOES!

    Man, teething is no fun for anyone involved. Poor baby, poor mama. And yes, the sleep disruption. Hope tomorrow is a little better for you.
