Party like it’s 1990

I am officially on the other side of 25 now. That means that I am closer to 30 than to 20. That shit is scary. But also, a little comforting. I almost feel like a legit grown up, as opposed to a child pretending to be a grown up. Almost.

So, cheers to that?




Dress & Sandals: Thrifted via Freestyle Clothing Exchange // Purse: Thrifted via Crossroads Trading Co // Denim Jacket: LA Fashion District // Arm Party: Mix of The Icing and Forever 21

In other news, I like thrift stores because I find dresses like this one. Totally 90’s in every single way and I couldn’t be more in love. I might have already worn it three times in the week that I have owned it. But I might not have. You’ll never know.

I think you know.


I bought a pair of sandals from Target a few days earlier, then I found these sandals at the same store as I found this dress – on the same day. Fate.

I proceeded to return the more expensive Target sandals. Thrifty Tip #46224: Don’t stop looking even after you’ve bought something new.



Confession, I took photos of this outfit on Friday. I did not appreciate my under eye bags, expressionless face, and lack luster poses, so we retook the photos the next day. I liked them much better. It is no coincidence that I added the arm party the second day. Arm parties have magical powers.


Also, I realize I am a year and four months late to the arm party train. A year and four months fashionably late. That’s how I roll.

    You look stunning! That dress is beautiful on you!
    Happy 25th ❤

  5. That dress was a great find! Very 90’s-tastic! I really like your new sandals too. I always find the best shoes at Target. Especially when the seasons change and there’s a ton of clearance shoes.
    Happy 25th birthday too! Hooray!

  6. Fab 90’s dress and welcome to the “other side”…if it makes you feel any better…you’ll always be younger than me 😉

    Wow, I totally thought you were like, 19 or 20! I always tend to think bloggers are younger than they actually are. Weird. Love the dress though! And hey, you’re a pretty great-looking other-side-of-25-year-old. 😉

    Et tu, tutu?
