november strikes again.  the wind has been banging up against the windows of my apartment for hours.  good thing its daytime otherwise i'd be scared.  but its impossible for me to have a case of the mondays today because over the weekend i found a vintage red valentino evening gown at the thrift store for 10 bucks.  it my new favorite find ever and im still smiling about it.

I'm so happy you found that Valentino dress! (For only $10? Hallelujah for thrift stores!) I woke up this morning from the howling wind. Does it really get this cold over here in New England? Let's meet for chai tea soon! <3

Um, so I'm home sick and I basically just went through the entirety of your posts. Oops!

You seem like such a beautiful person and the third person I have met/heard of that reads and knows Richard Brautigan, a favorite writer of mine.

What else? You're beautiful and share in my obsession of hats.
