Valentine's Day came and went and I did not make any cupcakes. I did however make some Valentine's Day themed cupcakes for the beginning of the month as a good-bye treat in honor of a coworkers last day. She was actually my cubicle neighbor and it was a big deal to me to go through the process and motions of feeling sad that she would be gone but also thrilled for her new job and her new adventure. I think it has taken me awhile to get over that considering I felt we had a close connection. I did make a pretty cute gift basket for her which I will share in a DIY post next.
I am ready to stop moping around and to get back to blogging. This is an outfit I wore to a Holiday party in December, and the shine to the dress makes it perfect for any night out. I wore it to the office too, but the dress has a very sophisticated cut and the metallic shine works for slightly formal occasions. And don't even get me started on the tassel belt!
This beautiful Trina Turk dress is actually something I scored using ThredUp. I feel like ThredUp is really addictive as it is a mobile, curated thrift store. Items can potentially be new with tags, but at a fraction of the retail price. This dress looked too pretty to pass up, and with their return policy, I felt pretty good about buying it. Had it not fit, or if I was debating whether I should keep it, I would have had 30 days to return it. I have the best luck finding items on that sight and I would recommend checking it out. As of now, I have not send in a bag of items I wish to sell, but I expect I'll be trying that pretty soon as the need for space in my apartment is ongoing.
My blog turned 3 sometime this month, and I can't believe it's been that long since I've started! I think a post dedicated to that is also in order. In the meantime, thanks for sticking with me this long and/or welcome to my third year of blogging!
Until next time,
