the ten euro dress

Here's a quick post of what I wore today before I run off to my Italian language class and Hot Yoga.
I bought this vintage dress while in Italy this summer at an outdoor antique market in Moncalieri. This perfect indian dress was only 10 Euro from a vintage clothing booth. I love it because it makes for an effortlessly cool outfit by throwing on some chelsea boots, strappy sandals, a floppy hat, ethnic jewelry or some big shades. 
The vintage tuled handbag is one I bought at a garage sale last year for $2, the vintage indian bangle is a hand-me-down gift from my grandma and the boots are Topshop. 
Gotta to italian!
Also, huge thanks to my Norwegian foreign exchange sister, Nora, for taking these awesome photos today!

Back in Black...

...And creamwell, and a few golds. 
Anyways, the point is, I'm back to bloggin' yo!
My last post was April 2013 and even then my blogging wasn't as consistent as it should have been. 
So, as one of the bullets on my list of New Year's resolutions, I will be bringing my thrifty ensembles to the web at least twice a week. 
I just barely caught the sun to get some photos for my first 2014 post today. My 16 year old brother (who took many of my previous blog photos) and his friend (with his new T3i in hand) snapped these photos for me today. I'd say they did a rad job!
