Around the corner, this woman was having a mini tag sale. She said she was about to pack up and that the stuff she had was the last of it. I told her I liked one bag, but I didn't have cash on me. She let me just take it, which was very nice of her. The only thing that I really didn't like about her was that she was describing everything as "hipster" to me, as if that would sell me on it. She said things like, "Oh, how about this hat? It's pretty hipster". It really irked me because I think that's a stupid description of an item, and I don't like that she assumed I was a "hipster" because I was wearing a dress and holding a camera. Ok, end rant. She was still very nice and I got a free H&M bag out of it, which was convenient for carrying the books I picked up.
I got this dress at Goodwill for probably about $7. It could've been cheaper if it had the right color tag to get 50% off. It seems like it's vintage, but there's no way to tell since there are no tags and no zippers. It definitely seems handmade. I like how comfortable and breezy it is, and I love the classic red and white stripes. I also love the button and cutout details!
On the apartment front, Ashley and I have officially signed our lease! We will be moving next month, so I have a lot of packing to do. At the same time, I feel like a lot of what I'll be packing and moving I can't really move until it gets to be close to when I'm going to be moving in. Most of what I have is clothing and books. I guess that's a proper representation of myself...lol. For my new room, I think I'm going to go with a literary theme. I found this awesome headboard that I want to make for my bed and I took out this book from the library called The Repurposed Library that has crafts for reusing old books. It'll be fun to get crafty. I always wish I was craftier, but I don't really have the time to do a lot of it. Also, I always think something is going to be cheap and then I end up spending $50+ at the craft store for supplies, so I have to be careful about which ones I choose to do. They seem pretty cheap, though, especially since I have access to some old books already.
