happy halloween.

So I was a slacker in the whole 'find-something-to-do-on-Halloween' and we don't have money to go get candy for little what's a girl with a costume to do? Dress up and take photos? Yes, please. Did you dress up? What was your favorite thing you have dressed up as? This has been my dream for like two years. I found the shoes at Goodwill and it was a done deal. My mission was set before me.

Here's a rundown of the cost costume:

- Skirt $4 (thrifted @ Value Village)
- Shirt $3 (thrifted @ Value Village)
- Jacket $30 (JCP - eh, I needed a light weight jacket :P)
- Shoes $5 (thrifted @ Goodwill)
- Tights $10 (JCP - again, tights are always needed)
- Umbrella $2 (thrifted @Value Village)
- Bag  (already had it)
- Hat $4 (thrifted @ Value Village)
- Hat accessories [daisy flower bunch + red 'berries'] >$2 (thrifted @ Value Village) 
- Gloves (from my mom)
- Bowtie (random fabric I had + hot glue +safety pin)
- Cheery Disposition (priceless!)

{inspiration thursday} red.

It am trying something new today and linking up with Gussy Sews! I joined the inspiration workshop not too long ago but this is my first time to actually link up! Today is all about RED and I could not be any happier! I love red. It's one of my favorite colors, maybe my favorite. For sure it's my go-to color, it inspires me, it captures me, and it looks good on just about anyone!

Here are ways I have incorporated red into my life {via home & wedding}

This is my happy flower. It's fake so it never dies and it lives in a little vase I made in pottery class in middle school.

My little red toaster. Found in an antique shop.

My little red teapot. Thrifted brand new!

As I was looking for the perfect S & P shakers for my red accented kitchen I found these gems at Target!

Had to have some red dishes. The top shelf is our college dishes and the bottom our married life ones :)

Love this round canvas with just enough splash of red. As-Is from Ikea!

We had a black & white + red wedding!

Accent plates.
My keep forever bouquet (from Etsy) and bridesmaids peacock fans
Shoes from Etsy

what i love wednesday: 3.

Sorry for my lack of blogging lately...we finally did it! We made the move back to Portland. Hopefully for good. Anyway, back to blogging with a fresh dose of What I love Wednesday!

Concrete messages. It makes my day to stumble across one. Another reason to love Portland  : )
