Spoiler Alert

Dress, Brooks Brothers. Jacket, Talbots. Belt, from another frock. Pumps, Nine West. Kiki, rescued.
Photos by LOVE-AN-ARNOLD

In the past few weeks, I've been very blessed (blessed has a nicer ring than spoiled, doesn't it?). I was given this pretty periwinkle dress as a present - hand-picked by yours truly, but still! I found this vivid double-breasted jacket for a mere $20 at our local Winners store. An artist friend agreed to take my photos today and let me use her sweet rescued dog as a prop. To top it all off, this time of the year brings ideal temperatures and late sunsets! Negative Nancy would love to find something to complain about, but she can't seem to catch a break in that department. Maybe tomorrow.

For a second I thought you were trying to corner my market on cute dog accessory. Glad to know it was just a prop.

Love that you are using the dog as a prop! The dress is lovely, periwinkle has your name on it! Also, all the best thrift finds are in Canada, another reason why I should move there...just one of many!

Adorable look! I feel a little silly here, but I didn't know Brooks Brothers has women's clothes...? It's adorable and classic and great on you. I love how you mixed the colors here. Just lovely.

The dog is quite charming, too. ;)

Yay for beautiful clothes and being optimistic! That blue colour is beautiful- my nails are painted a similar colour and I love that funky blazer!

That color is great! I didn't realize that Brooks Brothers sells women's clothes. I used to have sheath dresses. I used to be 30 pounds lighter. I'm sure I could still wear them. Perhaps it's spoiling time!
