I'm supposed to tag ten people but it's highly possible the ten people I choose have already been tagged! I invite every one of you who would like to do this to please do and let me know in the comments when you have posted your answers on your blogs.

Thank goodness for Friday and all its frivolity.



  1. Those boots are incredible! They lend a bit of a Barbarella edge to a pretty dress (a good thing!).

    I might have to accept your invite to do this tag, I've been awfully slack lately...

  2. Love this! SO cute.

    Would you like to do another package swap over the next couple of months? I keep finding stuff that reminds me of your style! :)

    A xx

  3. Me too I'd love to go to Salvation Army again and again!
    I look so pretty in this picture! The dress is cute!

  4. Your boots are SOOOO Fantastic. I love browsing your blog and have nominated you over on my blog for the "Beautiful Blogger Award"



  5. Gorgeous, what an amazing dress! I hope your work isn't too bad, though. I wish I'd out op shops as my place I go to over and over, as it's true!

  6. :) It was an easy pick to nominate you! Can't wait to see what you post- have a lovely weekend!

    PS, I love your picture spot there with the lavenders! So ideal :)
