A Mess of Fests

I had a second job interview with a Columbus non-profit... Red shoes = reliability! Hire me!


10-15 intense

10-15 eyes
What would I say is my best quality? Why, my red shoes, of course.

10-15 belt in
I ended up wearing the belt under the jacket because I wanted a little room in case the interview got sweaty.

10-15 detail

jacket - vintage
dress - I can't remember the brand. It's from TJ Maxx, of course.
belt - thrift/vintage
shoes - Gomax Shoetopia in Northside, Cincinnati
ring - It was a gift from my boyfriend's momma.

This was my play-around outfit. Legwarmer obsession: engaged!

jacket - thrift
dress - Free People
leg warmers - thrift
shoes - Old Navy

10-17 salt fest
My sister and I went to the Salt Festival at Big Bone Lick State Park on Saturday. There are so many jokes that I could use to follow that sentence ... I'll just leave that to your imagination.

Matching sweaters. Indeed.

sweaters - Free People
my skirt - thrift
tights - Vera Wang from Kohl's
boots - They're from some second-hand shop in Mt. Vernon, Ohio.

10-17 union suit
So, while at the Salt Fest, I bought a union suit. I was originally going to cut it off into a long sweater but now, I'm not so sure. What if I need long undies replete with butt flap? What if?

10-17 union suit detail

My boyfriend and I followed a Salt Fest with a Pumpkin Fest and I decided to dress accordingly... In layers.

10-18 kitchen

10-18 gloves

10-18 cat face

10-18 cat faces

dress - NVision in Northside, Cincinnati

I'll be giggling over Big Bone Lick all day. Because apparently I have the sense of humor of a 13-year-old boy.
Outfits rock as per usual.

I've never wanted a union suit, but suddenly, I do.

Mary - Thanks! I need to wear those shoes more often... and photograph my cats less!

Ms. Thrifty - The weather has been so unpredictable that it's been kind of hard to go on many outdoor adventures... But I love them! Thanks for you kind comment... The interview went really well!

Huzzah! - hahah! Thank you!

Kim - No, it's because it is the best name ever. It's just up the road from the Big Bone Lick Baptist Church and its sister congregation, the Beaver Lick Baptist Church. I am absolutely serious.

Paige - Hah! I actually got a message from some creek on flickr who seemed to be way, way too into union suits...
