Sir Isaac Newton

 Today I decided to wear an extremely impractical outfit to go out with my mom and one of our five beloved dogs, Newton (yes, named after Sir Isaac,) who is quite a handsome basset hound.  Dogs make the best friends (they won't tell your secrets), and I like to call this handsome dog my main man/boyfriend, seeing that I lack one in the human form.  I have to say it again: Isn't he so handsome?
The dress and trench coat in these photos were both thrifted at a cute thrift store in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  I had never seen the shop before, even though I pass the street every single time I visit the city.  The day that I finally noticed the store, I walk in only to see a sign stating that the store is closing.  Although the fact that the store has since closed is disappointing, the closing sign also stated something very nice: "50% entire store."  Yes, I'm a cheapster; I take absolutely any deal I can get, and if that means a deeper discount for an already cheap thrift store item, I will not complain.  The dress and trench coat are a matching set, and as you can see in one of the below photos, the trench jacket's lining matches that of the dress.  I paid all of $5 for the handmade, vintage set.  I'd call that a really good deal!
I apologize for the excess of photos, but I could not resist adding a few extras to showcase Newton!

Dress & Trench: Vintage (thrifted)
Shoes: Candie's (thrifted)
