A Quandary

I've been pretty lazy the last couple of weeks with my blogging. I've been wearing a lot of the same outfits that I have already showcased, partly because I've really liked some of those outfits, and partly because it can be easier to reach in and grab something I've already worn. However, I'm not sure if I should blog outfits that I've already showcased. So, I'd love to know your opinion, dear readers. Do you care if I show an outfit that I've already worn, or do you prefer to only see "new" combinations? 

Should I post previously worn outfits?
Sure! I don't mind seeing repeats.
No way! Only show me new stuff.
Previously worn stuff is okay as long as there is some new element to the outfit. free polls

The Rescued Dress

I rescued this dress from my Goodwill box this morning I'm glad I did, as I rather like how it goes with my black and white shoes. This was the first dress I ever bought after I moved to Kansas City. Sometimes I'm not sure about the pattern, but it sure is comfortable, and good for running errands. 

Outfit details: 
Dress and Necklace, Dress Barn. Shoes, Payless.

Pencil Pusher

It must be the week of the pencil skirt here at ...Not In Pajamas, for here I am in another one. I think they're such a great wardrobe staple. I like that they can be either casual or dressy, and the ones I've been wearing lately are all in cotton, so they're great for warmer weather. 

How cute are these buttons!!

Outfit details: 
Shirt, tank, and skirt, all thrifted. Shoes, Payless.

Like Friday, Only Different

I know today's outfit looks quite a bit like what I wore on Friday, and the shoes are the same, (though I had originally wanted to wear my new pink ones, but the color didn't match), but the skirt is different. You know how I love pencil skirts, so when I found a few at the thrift store in white and tan I nabbed 'em! 

Outfit Details: Blouse, Shirt and Skirt, all thrifted! Shoes, Payless.

Thrift Store Hero... With Stars in Her Eyes

Sorry again for my absence this week - I've been working hard to clean up after the drywall installation, and am happy to say that I am finally feeling a bit more moved in (thanks to stashing a bunch of boxes into our new storage area). 

I did some thrifting this week with fantastic results: 8 skirts, 8 shirts, and 1 dress all for only 34 dollars! Here are two of my recent finds:

Made By Me

Here is a dress that I created. I started it several years ago, but didn't finish it before I moved to Kansas City and my sewing machine went into storage. Now that we're in the new place it's back out and in use. First thing I did was to finish this dress. I was so excited to finally put it on.... until I realized the dress was too small! Oh well. Looks like seeing it finished on a hanger is the closest I'll get to wearing this little gem. It's too bad. Didn't it turn out to be cute?

Sorry I haven't been blogging this week - They've been building a storage / furnace room in our loft, and our place has been covered in plastic. Hopefully I'll be back with outfit photos tomorrow.

New Haircut

I went to the wonderfully talented Oz at Roca Salon yesterday and got a haircut. I went shorter on the bangs, and let the back go a little longer. I really like the results. What do you think?

Playing with Pixelmator

I've been learning about working with my photographs... Here's a little something I whipped up... This makes me laugh!

Mad Shoe Love!

I just found this great new store, maybe you've heard of it? It's called Plasticland.  Their prices are reasonable, and they have the cutest stuff! (no, I'm not getting a kickback for plugging them, I'm just excited to share a new store :D ). I just splurged on two new pairs of shoes. Here's what I got: 

Can't wait 'till they arrive! 

Lavender Blues

Sorry for the absence. I've been a bit under the weather for a few days - allergies and what-not. 

Why yes, you observant girls, this is the same skirt I wore last week. I had on white shorts earlier today but got taco sauce on them, and so I changed into this skirt. 

Outfit details: 
Shirt and tank, thrifted. Skirt, Express. Shoes, Dexter for Payless. Necklace, a gift.
