Just Because...

I haven't bought myself anything in quite a while. It's been really hard with the fiance' and I both urging each other to save our pennies for our wedding!


But, I need to stay sane so I decided to treat myself to a few things I had been eyeing.


I contacted the owner of this etsy shop to see if she could make these 2 necklaces as "One" and which she did!

I wore it out last night to our dinner date and our waitress complimented me that she had never seen "sideways" crosses LOL

***************

I caved and bought my first pair of Tory Burch Reva Ballet flats.


LOVE.

Did NOT love the 195 dollar price tag.

THANK YOU Ebay for helping me save some money on these bad boys.

Bought from a seller that was selling them for around 150 bucks. They were the store display pair (NOT A MARK ON THEM WHEW!)
 Reality is, I knew that if I wanted "real" ones and not knock offs I would have to fork over a little more.


*********
And remember my fiasco with my 55 buck cell phone case--how after one time of dropping it, the ONE place that wasn't covered, it slightly dinged the edge?


I finally got a case that goes ALL the way around the dang phone.



I've had some co workers ask me about the quote. It's probably one of my favorite parts of Robert's poem that really hits home with me, my life, and what I have gone through. 


This also came from an Etsy seller



I also found a dress to wear on our honeymoon in Hawaii this August. I have been trying really hard to expand my dress wardrobe..I seriously owned TWO at the beginning of the year. 




Finding dresses that are long enough are a BEAST. I'm 5'8" and a lot of time cutesy dresses are WAY to short someone my height. 

And I have to update this post and say as soon as work is over today I am returning this dress
If you look at the pictures, it just doesn't quite fit right. I have a very long torso. (I'm 5'8") and if you look at the waist part see how high up it falls on me? Not at my natural waist. So thus, I've decided since I'm not 100% cray cray about it, it must go back!

  1. I really like the cross necklaces--really cute!
    I also like the dress--I think it looks good on you, but I'm with ya--if it doesn't feel good to you, then you wont want to wear it. Go with your gut! :)

  2. Aw I really like the dress on you but what matters most is that you're comfortable in it! I am 5'8 as well and feel your pain about dresses always being too short! I will have to check out that etsy seller because I have been wanting a little dainty sideways cross bracelet and those look perfect!

  11. I love those necklaces! I really love them. I kinda want to get the same ones fused together like that! I'm 5'7 and also have a long torso and long legs. I find those super cute little sundresses do the same thing on me.. They just don't hit me right. I often buy things and then re-evaluate the decision later when I'm pulling at it, etc. The color of that dress is great on you, girl!

  14. Girl, I have the exact same dress problem. I am 5'9 and all these dresses lately require either some shorts underneath or some leggings unless I want to show the world my business.

  15. I'm sorry to hear you are returning your dress but it must be right for your wedding. When you find another one and if you're still looking for jewelry, check out Erin McDermott Jewelry. She's a doll and makes custom pieces for weddings all the time. http://erinmcdermott.com
    I've never commented before, but that thought just crossed my mind...

  18. I love love love the necklaces. I wanted the sideways cross, but felt it was inappropriate because I wasnt religious. Its very cool though.

    Glad you justified the shoes. Those will come in handy in Hawaii also for late night dinners. It can get windy there
