Fur & Pocket
I bought this dress back in October at this crazy little thrift store. The lady who runs it has wild hair and is always holding her ratty little dog. She sits in the middle of the clutter, watching videos on her computer and mending clothes. She rings purchases up in this huge old cash register, but stores all money in a little embroidered pouch stuffed under her chair. There's a big sign at the door proclaiming, "No backpacks! No large groups of college students!" Haha, it's nuts. But there are some amazing finds amid the piles of junk, and prices are pretty spiffy.
The first thing I noticed about this dress--obviously--was the pocket. Isn't it fantastic? It has these snaps on it so that a little doll (which I took off) can snap onto the pocket. That was a little too weird for me, but I love the wild pocket on an otherwise simple, rustic-like dress. Besides, look at the size of the pocket! It can hold books! Yes, that's plural. It eliminates the need to carry around a shopping bag or a purse! Fantastic.
The hat was a gift from my grandma a couple years back. I never really wore it because I didn't think I could rock it... but I think I can now. Besides, it's super cozy! Perfect for today. It was so cold that I didn't want to bother setting up the tripod only to experience the pain I had yesterday after freezing, so my dad helped me out & snapped these photos for me. It was so much quicker!
