Dress: Thrifted Jacket: Vintage Shoes: Frye

It has been so hot, lately, that I was forced to shoot in the shade to prevent passing out – my coat didn’t help things but photos needed to be taken. Regardless, I’ve been waiting to shoot this dress that I got recently, well, because it’s adorable. This weather is ridiculous. This time last week I was wishing everyone happy Halloweens and welcoming fall, and now it’s a hundred freakin’ degrees! Ugh.

However, this weekend is going to be lovely, and should you ever have had the inkling to purchase any of my outfits, I’ll be selling a huge collection of my wardrobe at the Behind the Picket Fence Handmade & Vintage Marketplace. It’s a special event being held in Costa Mesa on Saturday, Nov. 6, from 9am to 4pm. I’m bringing a pile of clothes that is, literally, 5 feet high & 5 feet wide – all sizes & styles. Personally, I’ll have a $2 bin and prices will be negotiable – I should warn you though that I’m one tough cookie when it comes to Let’s Make A Deal.

Basically, if you’ve ever wanted to walk around a real life ETSY, this is the time & place.

Cool! Wish I could drive up to Costa Mesa to check out your wares. I'm hating this stupid weather, lol. What a weird summer and fall we're having. I've been wearing shorts every day.

These autumn hues are DEFINITELY your colors!
