Fashion Friday heads to Dallas Pinup.

So Saturday afternoon my best friend and I headed out for a bit of shopping. I had found out about Dallas Pinup just through searching google for Rockabilly/Pinup clothing stores in the Dallas region. Let me tell you I am beyond thrilled I found this place. The moment I walked through the door I felt as though I had died and gone to my own retail heaven! You walk in and your eyes don’t know where to settle first, the dress rack to your right? The cosmetics in the center? The hats on the left? Oh it’s all so perfect! I totally spaced and forgot to take interior pictures of the store sorry, maybe I was a little too excited 😉 I did manage to remember to snap a few pics of different dresses when I was in the fitting room though.

IMG_9679My best friend is such a knock out!

IMG_9686Please excuse my ever so messy hair, trying on clothes has a way of messing your do up. This romper was sooooo cute but you only get to see the top half cause it was a bit short on me. 😉 I did actually purchase a dress but you’ll just have to wait to see it. I want to give it a proper shoot. But I shall share my outfit I wore that day though.

Fashion Friday is Back.

I am sorry I become so lapsed in my blogging. I think having a weekly built in theme of a blog post should do either one of two things, motivate to blog more, or really expose how lazy I truly am 😉 So here it goes I am returning to Fashion Friday posts. This is an outfit I wore on Wednesday when I met up with my friend Lauren and the other bridesmaids, for a girls night out, good food, and some shopping, so I tried to keep it stylish without being stuffy. The weather was absolutely gorgeous so I was able to wear shorts, but I knew night would become a little chilled so I grabbed “my” beloved denim jacket.
