happy accidents

while in austin, we went to the cutest little vintage shop called ragalicious. owned by the quirkiest lady with a cool eye for rad clothes. she gave us wine and sent us running amuck in her shop for goodies. as a bargain shopper, i immediately went for the $10 rack. i found an amazing embroidered mexican dress. i had been looking for such a dress as this for SO LONG. i knew it would need a few alterations so when i got it back to the hotel and i tried it on for paige, we agreed it needed to be shortened and maybe the sleeves removed. i had a great plan for when i got home. i like to DIY stuff to save a couple dolla bills but my execution for such things is sadly lacking. i am notorious for not properly preparing. like when i got a pair of scissors out and chopped the hem before double checking the length. you probably know where i'm going with this. yeah, so it barely covered my lady bits and i almost cried. yet another cute piece ruined by my hastiness. but then a lightbulb went off in my head. i could make it a cropped blouse!! yay! i was able to save the large floral bouquet in the middle of the dress so i can use it as a wall hanging or something. now i kinda feel like a genius because i'll truly get more wear out of it as a shirt. so see, happy accidents do occur.
but while i was moaning to matt about what happened to create such a cute new blouse, he suggested that i get back to my bread and butter of blogging and share more of my outfits. especially ones that come about under less than ideal circumstances. so at 10pm he grabbed the camera and started shooting video of me in the house acting like a complete goon. he later nabbed some screen shots to make these stills. he says he's better at video. i say he's good at everything he does.
