Outfit: Lightning Bolts, Instant Photos, Best Friends

This outfit post contains two of the best finds I have ever had the luck to find. 
When I found this lightning bolt dress I freaked. It was only $20 at TJMAXX. I am officially a "Maxxinista," hahaha. 
If you follow me on instagram then you already know how geeked I am about these shoes. I bought them from a local thrift shop for $2. TWO DOLLARS! 
The one bad thing about this dress is the long straps. I am going to have to shorten them so I don't have to pull them up constantly.
We both stopped dead in our tracks and Dominick rushed to capture this little guy's photo, while I whispered "Take his picture! Take his picture! Take his picture!" Can you spot him?
I was looking forward to taking photos in the woods, but the mosquitoes forced us out. I am glad though, Dominick had some great camera angle ideas!

Don't Fret, Just Listen: Kate Nash

This, is my face....covered in freckles with the occasional spot and some veins. Kate Nash is near and dear to my heart. She is sassy and lovely at the same time. Her music is quirky and wonderfully catchy.
She has a voice that I could definitely pick out. I love that about Kate. You could play me a song I have never heard by her and I would be able to tell. 
In some photos, Kate looks a lot like Katie of Skunkboy Creatures. Their names are even similar!

This music video is adorable. I guarantee you will be jealous of her outfits, I sure am. Plus, who doesn't love dancing cats?

I love this little interview-ish video. Kate Nash is such and inspiration. My life would be complete if I met her.

Dress For Less: Summery

I hope you guys enjoy these Dress For Less posts as much as I enjoy hunting down deals!

Total= $51

Darn it! I just missed the $50 mark. Well, it is pretty close and this outfit is so cute! I am really considering buying these oxfords. Once again, they are from Yes Style, and I'm not sure if I trust this site or not. Have any of you ordered from there before?

Stuff I Luff #19

I love doing these "Stuff I Luff" posts. They are like little wish lists. Whenever I feel like treating myself to something, I review these posts and pick something out.
This pillow would be such a cute little detail to any room. I can imagine it on a bed, couch, chair, anything!

This dress is so amazing! If you like it as much as I do, you should enter the giveaway over on Someone Like You.

I love Mel Stringer's illustrations! These badges are so lovely!

Ciara's beetle ensemble is glorious. I just wish the shirt wasn't sold out!

Awh! This arrow ring is customized with you and your loved one's initials!

I love this dainty peter pan collar. I find so many pretty dresses at thrift stores that would be perfect if they had a collar. I need to invest in a detachable one like this!

This dress is so pretty! I love the delicate beading.

Places to go: Lost and Found Vintage

I find blog posts that feature local shops and spots extremely helpful for those who are visiting. So, I have decided to start sharing some of my favorite local spots!
510 S. Washington Ave. Royal Oak MI 48067
I love the decorations around the store. 
This is the shop where I found my prom dress for senior prom. They have the best fancy dresses.
The ladies working there were super nice, and fashionable!
There is a whole box full of vintage photos and stationary! I could have spent hours looking through them all.

Visit the Lost and Found Etsy shop.

Life in Instagram

This whole fancy phone business has really made me lazy. I hardly ever lug around my camera anymore. Hopefully a nice new camera bag will change that.
