Day 75. 290 days and $286 left to go.

Woo hoo!!  It’s Day 75 friends!!  If we were working in years, it would be our golden/diamond anniversary 🙂  Let’s just wait for day 275 to do something real bling, bling, how does that sound?  Today we’ll have to just go with this collared, muumuu-y, stretchy-ish puppy.

Yikes, is probably what you’re thinking.  This orangey base dress with yellow/blue/pink/green flowers had not only a super big collar (what’s crackin’ 70s?) but a super big cigarette hole!!

Cigars, cigarettes...

Now I didn’t see this as I was sorting through big piles of goodies last Sunday – I think I got a little caught up in wanting to make it to the Super Bowl festivities on time that this ciggy mark slipped past my tired and sunglassed eyes.  But, alas, it was something that I would need to stitch up along with the length, the sleeves and the body of the dress.

Stitched up ciggy hole, that kinda looks like a fish...you think?

I also wanted to deepen the V, so I grabbed my seam rippers and took a cue from Lil’ Jon and got low.

Well hello new long sleeved mini dress!  You look so lovely combined with my vintage yellow button-down vest and navy belt!  The color palette was rather bold, but for such a sunny LA day, it worked perfectly.  Allowed me a little time to take a break or two from the office and go outside for some  vitamin D.  Thanks to my Leonard Cohen lovin’ colleague JT for snapping the photos.

Bling for Day 75!!

Hurrah for sun & Day 75!!

It’s almost Friday, and nothing is better than a Friday on a holiday weekend…  Let the party almost begin!!  xx Marisa
