stuck on you

Reno, Reno, Reno. Is it possible to leave your heart there? Doubtful, but I have a strange affinity for the place nevertheless. It must be the endless buffets and the plentiful vintage, because it's definitely not the gambling (I lost $2 playing Kitty Glitter and that was the extent of my gambling career). This dress was much too Fancy Fine for Reno but it seemed like the perfect "summer vacation dress" in my mind. My mind, by the way, is filled with weird fantasies of what should constitute a vacation wardrobe, which is how I ended up bringing a bunch of sparkly, frilly frocks and nothing at all casual. No regrets!

The caveman photo below is a perfect example of what I look like between every "good" photo. Feel free to make it your desktop background and laugh at me whenever you're feeling blue.

This outfit is totally amazing. Can't wait to show nix this picture of you... As I'm the exact same way and he gets so annoyed after a while! Glad I'm not the only one who feels goofy taking pics :)

Adorable dress! I love yellow. You can never feel down in yellow! The last picture is awesome! Although I can't imagine that you'd have too many of these! You take such great pictures!

This dress is the perfect summer vacation dress! Those little white daisies are so adorable. There's no shame at all in just packing summer dresses if they're all as cute as this.
