This dress is my first styling of a Flock Together borrowed piece, and I jumped on the chance to wear this great dress of Jessica’s. I remember drooling over it when it was for sale on Modcloth, and after having the chance to wear it, I regret not buying it even more! I managed to squeeze in a couple of stylings before sending it back though. :)

This top is one of my vintage scores from raiding the Goodwill Halloween section. It’s no wonder I rarely find vintage clothes there all year, they always seem to hoard them and then label them as costumes. It’s fine with me though, I got some great stuff for cheaper than they usually sell clothes for.

Oh, and the folding screen? It was an estate sale score and not usually our yard decor- I dragged it outside to add even more color to this post ;)

Last night I went to an annual Halloween party at my friend’s house and today has been spent napping and marathoning The Killing, resting up for the week to start again. For Thursday’s What to Wear link up we are showing our Halloween costumes if you want to join in!

Did you start the Halloween celebrating this weekend or are you waiting until Thursday? Hope you had a great weekend!

    Oh this is so cute!!!! I love the mix of patterns here and the bright colors are so much fun. I’m excited to see your costume! I went to a couple parties over the weekend, and honestly don’t think I know anyone doing anything on Halloween itself, so we’ll have to see!

    I remember I got to style up this dress through another swap and I fell in love with it. SO, SO, SO hard to send it back. I love that you didn’t shy away from color and just added more. Such a fun look! :)
