Well, I finally did it. I got a denim button down. I've been to for what feels like forever, or at least a few years, but I just hadn't found the right one for the right price. Since I've been focused on getting some good quality, long-lasting shirts lately, I couldn't resist when J. Crew Factory was a one day sale on certain items a week or two ago, so I finally ordered this one. It's great quality (real denim rather than chambray), and I can already tell that I'll be wearing it often. I paired it with this floral Jack by BB Dakota dress, which I picked up at Goodwill last week for $9. The top button on the dress is broken, so until I fix it (or resort to a safety pin), I'm settling for wearing it as a skirt. Between this gorgeous dress and that lovely floral skirt I found over the summer, I am killing it at finding BB Dakota pieces for super cheap at thrift stores this year. I'm beginning to think that I'll never need to buy anything by the brand for full price from now since the universe obviously is planting things in thrift stores for me to find. Thanks, universe!
Other than actually a few productive things I've been doing lately, I've been having a fun past couple of days. I saw "This Is Where I Leave You" with my friends Adam and Miller on Monday, and it was better than I expected. I've been meaning to see for at a month or two now because of the incredibly cast, but it didn't look like it'd be too great so I didn't get around to it until this week. It certainly wasn't the best movie I've ever seen, but anything with Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Kathryn Hahn, Cary Stoll, Ben Schwartz, and Connie Britton is worth seeing. We ended up getting a couple drinks after and staying out way too late, but it was a really fun night. Yesterday, I went to a cool downtown area near me with my friend Alyssa for lunch and shopping, where I got to use some store credit to Buffalo Exchange. It was a great day, but I'm putting myself on another shopping ban. I had been good for months, but I've added too many new pieces (as cheap as they've been) to my closet lately, and I really need to just stop. Someone send help.
I'm looking forward to the rest of the week of dressing up for Halloween at work, Oktoberfest, and seeing a Harmontown taping over the weekend. I've been absolutely terrible at commenting on blogs lately, so please tell me, what have YOU been up to lately?
