Bows and Pendants

Blouse: Goodwill Shorts: Salvation Army Blazer: H&M

My camera freaks out whenever I try to take pictures in overcast weather, but I knew I had to make it work today. I couldn't NOT show off this blouse to all of you! How cool is it? The bow and pendant around the collar completely sold me on this piece.

I promise better pictures tommorrow. I'm actually considering updating my camera, anyone have suggestions as to which models to look at?

The vintage style maven who is Sally Jane Vintage did a super sweet post about me on her blog. You can check it out here. I am really in aww of the amazing support you all give me. I appreciate every last one of you, and absolutely love reading your comments, they make my day!

So here goes another one: in my opinion, this outfit is not about the blouse, but the sensational combination of those jeans short and the ripped stockings...that just looks absolutely fabulous.

Thx for making my day!

I love the pendant! Such a great look!

For cameras, in terms of point and shoot, I quite like Canon's powershot line... I love my elf since I can always carry it around with me.
