It ain't a citron party if you can't come 'round.

Hello, guys! First of all, I had this post all ready to go when blogger stopped working. I had to do it all over again...so...sorry if it seems oddly written since I'm rushing a bit to get it done! Plus, all your nice comments on my last post are gone! Um, thanks a lot Blogger!

Today I'm wearing this super sweet Yellow Party dress from Lulus. This week, or most weeks for that matter, my life doesn't really require that I wear a party dress so I made it more casual with a striped tee. Also, I don't wear this bag enough because I love it. It was originally a white stripe but I painted it green. I think it's ready for it's next color! I'm leaning toward....Apricot. You thought I was going to say Peach, didn't you? :)










Wearing:

Whole Lot of Citron Going on Dress: c/o Lulus
Peep toe Pump: c/o Corso Como
Tshirt: Vintage
Tights: eBay
Coat: Vintage
Bag: TENOVERSIX


Here are some fun Hipstas. I've had several people ask if I've tried Instagram. I have, but I prefer Hipstamatic. I do use Instagram, but I am a Virgo so I like things to be uniform and I like the lens I use on Hipstamatic. It's my favorite. :)



Lastly, I'm making an FAQ for the blog so if you have any questions that you would like included let me know! :)

I hated not having new blogs to read for the last couple of days! Can't wait to catch up after the weekend. Have a fabulous one. I hope you have sunny weather and sunny times. ♥

  22. So glad you are doing a Q&A Coury :-)

    2) Are your photos edited in photoshop because they come out so clear! If so what do you do to them?
    3) What things do you love?
    4) What things do you hate?
    5) Are there any countries whose fashion you love?
    6) Have you ever been to the UK? (Would love a blog post of you in London, I think your photography in the London scenary would be amazing!)
    7) Any chance of you updating daily? As your outfits are just amazing and I check your blog everyday!
    8) Do you have any piercings?
    9) I noticed you only really wear vintage - what high street shops do you like?
    10) Would you do a post/video documenting your wardrobe/things in handbag etc?

    Please get back to me :) Your blog is captivating :) Thank you!

  23. Oh Coury, you never fail to amaze :) Love the party dress as a skirt. All of the tulle is so whimsical and pretty.

    Questions:

    On average, how many hours a week do you think you spend shopping/thrifting/hunting?

    What was the first thing you wanted to be when you grew up?

    What did you study in school?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Questions...I agree with everyone above ^ If you weren't a blogger what would you be doing?

    Do you have any role models/style icons?

  35. man...there is nothing worse than having to rewrite something from scratch/memory...

  36. Isn't that funny...while your outfit in this post is undeniably darling, its the last one I'm still swooning over...particularly the trousers and that lovely tweedy coat. They both have such a great retro/classic silhouette, and you pull that off so well.

    I'm really digging what you do with colors...its your fault I caved and bought that dreamy little lavender lace bag from Anthro!

  37. aw this is so cute, I love that you're changing the color of the stripe on your bag. When I was a kid i really really realllllly wanted one of those watches that had interchangeable faces ;)


    Also, love your outfit in the last Hipsta!!
