Rainy Days and Mondays

... never get me down.

It was rainy today.  I had the day off.  It was a great day!  Took these pics before the rain came...

{dress - Jean Paul Gaultier for Target, wedges - Nine West, belt - F21}

Played with the draping of the dress and made a makeshift shrug.

I'm also super stoked because I was one of the lucky winners of this beautiful bracelet from Amy's {junghwa by amy stewart} Rope Bracelet's Giveaway.

I can't wait to wear it!  Thanks again Amy for picking me!!  If you lovelies don't know Amy yet, definitley check out her BLOG and also her ETSY STORE.  She's a total sweetheart and is uber creative too! You're gonna want everything in her shop!  I know I do. :)

One thing that did make me a bit sad... was my failed attempt to find a boater hat.  My head is large and in charge... there is no hat on the planet that fits my head. :(

Love, S

I'm in love with that dress, unfortunately, I think the shape would eat me. I'm so little.

And you and I have have the opposite problems with our heads. No hat fits me, either, but that's because I have the head the size of a fetus.

AsianCajuns (Lar) said...

A shrug! Sharon, that's genius! I didn't even think about trying that ;) You look gorgeous in the dress! Oh and Cath and I both have very large heads too. The boater hat she purchased from Nasty Gal also barely perches on her head. I love going to actual hat shops because mens' hats usually fit me perfectly ;)

Marz said...

I love the draping on the dress, and the fact that you can make it into a shrug! Congrats on the bracelet!

AsianCajuns (Cath) said...

I'm sorry that your quest for a boater is still going on. i found a lot of the real vintage boaters were bigger than what they're selling in shops now. You might want to check ebay.

Kobash said...

Lovin the shoes. Super cute!!!

Fee-AMore said...

I am trying to find a fitting boater hat too. Good luck to us. ;)

congrats on the bracelet, it´s uber cute. love your striped dress as well! i would have advised you to look at h&m because they have hats in different sizes, im sure there´s one that could fit you, but you dont have h&m so i´ll just shut up. :p
