Polka dots and lace

I was going to take some bags of clothing to Goodwill last month, only to find myself at Goodwill, minus the bags of clothing. So I just went in and browsed around. I found this cute polka dot dress with lace marked with the color of the week for half off, so I snagged it for $3.50. Not bad, if I say so myself.

The bag of clothing still hasn’t made it’s way to Goodwill, but it keeps getting added to, so it’s all good. It has now become two bags of clothing, as my son added to it as well. It will get there one of these days.


The lace details on this dress were too cute to resist. I’m always a fan of cute details.

I attempted to style the cardigan wrap thingy again. Mostly I was wearing it with a big white belt across the front. Other than draping it over my shoulders like a poncho.

This weekend, I’m mourning the passing of summer as our high temps have only been in the 50’s. Not even that yet today. My sister even had snow already down in Bend! Craziness, I’m telling ya! Just say no to early winter.

Thank you for stopping by. If there is no post next weekend, just know my body did not want to acclimate to the cooler temperatures just yet, and I just said ‘no’ to taking more photos for the blog. Ha. (Funny how at the other end of winter, these same temps feel like spring is coming on and it’s time to go outside and have fun again.)

Green peplum off shoulder top

It’s been weeks, ya’ll. Weeks since I’ve posted anything on here. My desktop computer crashed and I ordered a hard drive and then started the process of recovering it so I can use photos, ect on my lap top. But, I’m back. I’m sure you all missed me!

Green off shoulder top, white zip up sweater + jeans & pink Kate Spade New York handbag

On to the fashion. From a few weeks ago. Moving into spring in a green off shoulder peplum top with a fun twisted chain detail at the top and super soft stretchy jeans. I found these at Goodwill. Meant to use them as a project to cut off and fray the hem, but I liked them so much just they way they were that I didn’t want to cut them and fray the hem. Instead, I have a pair with a broken side zipper I decided to cut the side zippers off and fray those along the edge. Re-purposing the old and enjoying the new ones!

The top is old, end of season off the clearance racks at Kohl’s. Can’t remember what I paid for it, but I tend to shop there with $5 or $10 off coupons + a discount percentage off, so I get things for a super good deal off the clearance racks. Yep.That’s how I roll. Trying to make clearance rack clothing even cheaper. Ha.

The blue velvet shoes were on clearance at Ross, not sure where the white sweater jacket came from. I believe someone gave it to me. Kate Spade New York handbag was a gift from Kate Spade New York last year, because they are awesome. Or because I am. Not sure which. Hmmm. Hahaha.

In the meantime, my mom finished up her radiation treatments in early March and will get her next cat scan in early May. She gets two months off for good behavior, or some such thing, in between. (Radiation is pretty hard on your body, so she is given 8 weeks off to recuperate.) Keep her in your prayers as she’s still battling this awful disease called cancer.

Recently, I decided to buy some R-Alpha Lipoic Acid because a friend sent me an article about it healing up nerves and nephropathy, kidney’s, livers and even cancer. I think the article was sent to me regarding my moms cancer, but as I was reading it helps heal nerves and I have a sciatic nerve problem, I decided to give it a go for myself and be the guinea pig for anyone else among my family or friends in need of healing. I’ll update you at some point down the road so you can find out if it worked. I am taking it with a B-complex as it said it could deplete your vitamin B levels. Fingers crossed that I can be healed of my sciatic nerve pain rather than taking Amitriptyline to relax my nerves for the rest of my days…
