the daily garb: heels & a touch of lace.

i got this adorable little dress a few days ago from a resale shop! i think it's vintage..i'm not sure, it looks to be...the tag looks old. anyways, i really like it, the lace detailing is so perfect, right when i saw it i knew it belonged in my overflowing closet..but it was only $12 sooo...it was kind of a no brainer hahaa

and good news, i finally decided what i'm doing in the fall! i got my A.A. in general studies at the end of last semester, and in the fall i'm going to get my 
SEAMSTRESS CERTIFICATION!
okay, i know that sounds like an old lady thing to do, but i am SO excited! i've always known how to hand sow and i have a little sowing machine, but i'm going to really learn how to sow (who knows if i'm even doing it correctly). and i'm going to learn how to make patterns and learn how to alter and all kinds of cool shenanigans, i am ECstatic :) then i can make (hopefully) adorable dresses like this one (or hideous ones..hopefully they are cute)! ahh...theres just so much! i can't wait to share all the things i'm going to create!
