Homeowner!


Today was The Day. We closed on our house today. It's the first time I've ever owned a house, so you can imagine how excited I am!!! While we were waiting at the title company, I spied this amazing elevator in the lobby. Mirrors? Graphic design? Whoo hoo! And for those of you who like to spy Rand in photos, this one should make you happy.

What I Wore While Buying a House:

2010-07-28 combo
  • jean skirt (Target)
  • grey striped T (Old Navy)
  • vest (Lane Bryant)
  • purple flats (via DSW)
  • cat brooch* (via Goodwill)
* I bought this brooch with the intention of wearing it once and then giving it away. So if it tickles your fancy, let me know.

Congratulations on the house!! You look great, as usual. Makes me pine for some purple shoes... And the brooch is lovely too, but I live in the UK so usually can't enter blog giveaways...

Conratulations Tina! You are looking fab as usual... Ok so now that I am back in the blogosohere, I want to issue you a big huge gigantic apology!!! I'M SORRY. When you won that scarf giveaway eons ago I tried and tried to contact the company with no reply ever. LAME! I should have taken care of this long ago but it slipped my mind until now. I still feel terrible about the whole thing and I remember you are a scarfaholic so I would love to send you one just for being you. If you could send me your NEW address...YAY! I will promptly put it in the mail. You can email me @
