Since I began substitute teaching, I’ve been “collecting” the different grades. So far, I’m only missing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd! Today, I repeated kindergarten. Not a bad grade to do again. Dress, Express. Tunic (worn underneath), Wet Seal. Belt, thrifted. Shoes, Isaac Mizrahi. Sunglasses, Girl Props. Pin, Disney. Jacket, Xhilaration (thrifted).
I’ve always wanted a friend named Bert, so, although no one else calls Robert that, I christened him so when we met this summer.

Vest, Tinseltown (cut from a thrifted jacket). Sweater, Forever 21 (thrifted). Shorts, Lassie. Tights, Me Moi. Boots, Matisse. Earrings, Francesca’s Closet. […]
I felt really good about this outfit because an old man in the produce section of Raley’s said, “Nice outfit!” Granted, I was reaching overhead for a plastic bag at the time and my skirt was probably riding up a bit . . . but I’ll take the compliment. Hat, Nine West. Vest, AC-3998 (cut […]
