Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, Princess of Genovia

 "Your majesty, only Paolo can take THIS and THIS and give you...a princess."

I truly don't remember what triggered the idea to be the makeover scene from the Princess Diaries (if I had to guess it was the last time I straightened my hair or while brushing it out before a shower and seeing its massive poof-ability), but I've had this idea for over a year now. It originally came to me somewhere between 2019 and 2020 but then I had to store the idea in the memory bank as COVID killed ANY and ALL Halloween plans for 2020.

Thrifting Magic (Christopher John Rogers for Target)

My goodness has it been a whirlwind few weeks! For the last two weeks of September, I was in Colorado for an epic work trip - one week in Boulder getting to work alongside my team and other colleagues and one week in Denver for our annual conference. And last week I just felt like mush trying to get back into my normal routine.

Queen of the Underworld (Timeless London)

Just in time for spoopy season, Timeless London reached out to me for a collaboration. I had the HARDEST time choosing a dress for them to generously send me but then I spotted this Lynette Animal dress and knew it'd make the sassiest look for October.

Perfectly Pinup

 Greetings from Boulder, CO! As this blog goes live, I am in Colorado for a two-week business trip! I'm spending one week at my company's office and then the second week in Denver for our annual conference. It's going to be crazy but fantastic!

Painted Polka Dots (Collectif)

Is my Collectif sale haul from July still going? Why yes, yes it is! I ordered 4 dresses total and this is the 3rd and final one I have to share on the blog. Not to imply that there is a 4th rejected dress somewhere in my apartment. I've just shared that one via Instagram and didn't bother with a full post.

If this Judy dress looks familiar at all to anyone, it may be because I own the same dress in a different print and shared that dress LAST summer after scoring it in that sale! It is still one of my favorites so I made sure to grab this amazing red and white version when I spotted it this time around.

Palm Springs (Bernie Dexter)

I know, I know - I claimed it was Collectif month but I figured it would be OK to take a brief break from the Collectif sale scores to bring you a lovely Bernie Dexter number.

Lovely Brielle (Collectif)

 If you see this dress and immediately feel anxiety over it getting dirty, then you are one of my people.

Despite the OVERLOAD of white in this Brielle Love hearts swing dress, my heart went pitter-patter at the adorable pink heart print, border, and belt. I decided it was worth the risk and included it in my recent Collectif 50% off sale purchase.
