Speedy Girl Kitty Dress





As mentioned in an earlier post this week I received a dress at the Michigan Blogger Meet-up to style for a contest on Speedy Girl (www.shopspeedygirl.com). If you like my look, then check out their facebook page and vote for me by liking my photo (it may be a few days before it's up)! I browsed through their website and if I wasn't in the process of trying to downsize my closet my wallet would be in trouble! They have super cute dresses, skirts, tops, etc, and everything is really cheap! The only catch? You have 24 hours to snatch up your item before it's gone!





We had quite a selection of items to go through, so it was nice having different choices. Of course I had to go with the cat dress! Jon agreed that it was purrrrfect for me. Haha, okay...I'm done being lame now. Promise.



Unfortunately the dress was slightly big on top. So I remedied the problem by throwing a little sweater over it. I wanted to stick with a muted color palette and for fun I added a vintage lace collar. I actually planned on going to downtown Ferndale to take outfit pictures. I'm starting to get bored of taking pictures in my backyard. However, the clouds were threatening rain so I decided it was best to take the outfit pictures in my yard after all. Just as predicted as soon as I was done it started pouring! Well, I then went to load up my car for some errand running and movie watching at my theatre...only to realize that my mom still has my car keys...and Jon still has the spare key...and he was already at work. So...long story short...I was obviously not going anywhere. At least I'm getting a lot of blogging done tonight!

And I think I'm going to start organizing the back room for packing. I really didn't want to start packing until we had an apartment (I'm kind of superstitious like that). However, if we end up signing a lease for 2 weeks from now we're never going to get done in time! So...I figure I should start now. I just hope we sign for an apartment soon! So far none have been available late October yet, but it seems like that is starting to change. Wish us luck!















Hahaha, okay I left this one in just for Jon...I'm flying away! ;)
