The Thursday Thrift // September

What?  It is already well into October, isn’t it?  I know, I know, I never posted anything for September.  I didn’t even forget, I just never got any photos taken.  It was a bad month for me, photogenically speaking.  I was having one of those ‘bad hair’ days for all of three weeks it seemed.  I like to use the term ‘bad hair day‘ to include all forms of physical appearance.  I am finally feeling better about myself, and finally ready to show you all what I have worn lately that was thrifted.

And actually my ‘bad hair day’ may have started earlier that I am thinking.  I remember now that I didn’t even get a proper outfit photo post up for the last month’s Thursday Thrift either.  I was a headless, polka dot dress wearing body.  Sorry about that.  Let me make it up this month, how about another polka-dotted dress, but this time with my head included?  Here you go:

I have loved this dress since the day I got it.  It didn’t even matter that it was a little on the snug side when I did.  I knew I would fit into it eventually, and this was the week – almost two years later.  I tried it on after months and months of ignoring it, and am very happy to say it fits!  I will never turn down polka dots, and I may be accumulating quite a collection of them.  You can never have too many polka dots, I always say.

On a different note but back to that feeling lately of being not so photogenic, it isn’t always easy taking pictures of yourself.  The funny thing is that I have gotten more used to taking my own photos than I am of my guy taking them for me.  I feel like I can be a little more at ease taking them myself, but then I run the risk of having them always looking somewhat the same.  I am trying to work on this, but since I just signed myself up for a year in outfit photos, which I am trying to have happen on a weekly basis, I don’t know how original I will get.  Not everyday calls for a drive to some location other than my backyard.  If all else fails, I can just overly edit my monotonously posed photos.  Sounds good to me.  I may end up a better Photo Shopper than photographer at the rate I am going.  But I am happy to be back posting about outfits and thrited finds either way.  Until next time (which is only one week away), happy thrifting!
