THE GARDEN GATE...MAXI DRESS


HELLOOOO and what is goin on? I have never been so busy in my entire life but I managed to squeeze in a photo shoot today.  I found this lovely little spot that belonged to a random older gentleman in Voorhees, NJ.   How do I know this you ask?  Abby, his daughter was pulling out of the long winding driveway that belonged to her father and snagged me.   I simply said hi, and  introduced myself.  I explained that I am a fashion blogger just taking a few shots using the green gate as my backdrop.  She said it was fine as long as I did not take photos of the house or her father who had a paint brush in his hand when I introduced myself to him as well.  Whew, got away with that one!!!  Anyway, I would like to wish everyone a great weekend and hope that you are planning something interesting or fun to do.  My dress, cardigan, and belt were thrifted with a total cost of $10.00.  My sandals which you  can't see are from Walmart {(don't judge me you know you shop there too} and my necklace is from Plato's closet.  The bracelet was from a swap with a friend and follower of this blog. My kittens are getting better.  I give all 5 of them a dose of liquid medicine with a syringe right down their throats and practically cry when they run away all pissed off at me for giving them awful tasting meds...it sucks but they have to have it.  I am glad to still have them but they are leaving soon because I am going to Hawaii soon.  It will be a good distraction for me although  I will miss them dearly.  I better go before the waterworks begin...lots of love darlings.  Miss you all.  Dawn xoxoxo

I just visited my daughter in Georgia and she took me to Plato's Closet. We scored a couple of great dresses there and the most awesome pair of sunnies with a tiny black bow embellishing one corner! I had no idea there were a bunch of them until I read this post! I see a quick road trip in my future. Love the dress and garden gate - beautiful all the way around! Cheers!

That is so cool they didn't mind you taking pictures there. It is a great location. Love all the thrifting finds! It is really an accomplishment when your whole outfit costs under 20$!
