How do you like my new pose? This is my "I have arms!" pose. This summer has been the summer of getting over all my insecurities. One of them being showing my arms and wearing something sleeveless without a cardigan sweater. It was a strange insecurity. Because I didn't think my arms were too big. I just had this fear of showing skin and couldn't get used to the idea of how I looked with bare arms. Like I was addicted to layering and couldn't let go of my 90's instinct to wear as many as I could. Obviously, this is not an issue anymore! But I am not lying when I say I can't wait for cooler weather to see some of those layers return.

The majority of my dresses (and all my clothes) are thrifted these days. Which is pretty amazing if I do say so myself! Because we go to the thrift store at least once a week, I am able to spot them all the time. I didn't try this one on and could just tell it would fit me perfectly. The wrinkle-free fabric is also a big bonus. Thrifting most of my clothes makes me happy because it so much cheaper and I like the idea that I am recycling and supporting an organization that helps people in need and provides with them with job skills.
I am purple now! I had some leftover purple from when I put purple layers in my red. I bleached it and put the purple over some remnants of red. I like that it turned out with some different tones and dimensions. Sometimes it looks maroon and sometimes it looks very blue-ish purple. I was going to strip my color first but I decided that the colors were similar enough that I would just see how it turns out. Voila!
You may be able to tell her that my pinky is a little well, pink. That's because I use it to put on my lipstick. Secrets revealed! I also never pluck my eyebrows anymore or put mascara on my bottom lashes. I save so much time.
