A day at the movies...

Today my mom and I ventured to the Promenade Shops in Saucon Valley, Pennsylvania to go see a movie at the Rave movie theater.  I usually am the person to wait for a movie to come onto dvd before seeing it, so I can commentate on how good, or stupid the film is.  Today was a different story seeing that I was going to a free little kid movie at “summer movie camp.”  I used to attend “summer movie camp” with my mom all of the time when I was a kid, so going now when I’m a bit older is kind of entertaining, seeing that my mom and I were really the only people in attendance without a little kid.  The movie was Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and I have to admit that it was a pretty cute movie.  

I realize that I am a smidge too dressed up for going to a movie which is only attended by little children, but if I never dressed up to go simple places, I would never dress up at all.  

As I usually state: this dress was yet another thrifted find.  I recall running across a thrift store about a year and a half ago to see this gorgeous dress, which from across the room appeared to be vintage; turns out that this beauty is not vintage, but an H&M, and gorgeous none-the-less.  I fell in love with this dress at first glance, and it has truly become one of my absolute favorite pieces of clothing.

Dress: H&M (thrifted)
Shoes: Unisa (thrifted)
Scarf: ?
Sunglasses: ?
Necklace: Vintage (Mom's)

currently listening to: Lake-Oh, the places we'll go

I love that dress! I'm so jealous cuz I dont have an H&M store near me lol great find indeed!

Thanks Sarah! I wish that I had some sort of magic trick for tying scarves... I just used a 3.5ft scarf and tied a knot in it. I had some problems adjusting it so my hair wouldn't bulge out strangely.
My best advice would be to just experiment with it. It took me a long time to perfect my turban tying, and I am just now starting with other types of scarves (such as this one).
Wish I could be of more help!

I used to have that dress in black, and now I'm kicking myself for selling it consignment. It's so timeless and classic. You look lovely!!!

Thank you!
It truly is such a versatile dress. I would love to have one in black, too.
See, that's the reason why I have so much clothing... I'm always afraid that I'll regret letting the items go, even if I am making room for possibly better items, hah.
