One Whole Dolla






Remember that shopping ban that I may have or may have not put myself on? If I bought this dress for a dollar, does that really count? I mean really. One whole dolla? You be the judge! The dress is a tad too big and a tad too long but it was nothing a belt couldn't fix.


I have really been into the Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 look. That whole "housewife during the Dustbowl era with heels" look really appeals to me for some reason. This dress reminds me of the uniform my mom wore when she was a waitress when I was about 5 or 6 years old. She worked at Sambo (what a name)...it was basically a Denny's...I think. I remember she had to wear a uniform and it looked alot like this.
That's amazing that I remember that because I can't even remember what I ate for breakfast! I have the worst time remembering people I went to high school with and I have the nerve to remember where my mother worked when I was 5? Since I'm reminiscing...I also remember one time my mom dropped me and my brother off at elementary school and the car caught on fire when we got there!

(By the way...the season finales of Grey's Anatomy and The Good Wife have me freaking out!!)

Great score with the $1 dress. I'm still trying to get over Grey's too. The fact that I watched it Sunday morning then spent the entire day in my classroom in a dark and empty school didn't help.

The dress is super cute. I love that look as well. Really I love any look that is all about archetypal 'female' roles like the 50's housewife or 70's waitress. Mix this with something modern and it's ALWAYS cute!

The car caught on fire Reiko? I'm not sure if I should laugh. A whole dolla? Where did you find that. Forever 21 has some jazzy hats like that one in the Ralph Lauren pics.
