99 Cent Dreams

I do not own the photos below:

This was a quick little photo shoot I did a few nights ago. A look inspired by tumblr photos I have reblogged yet again (FOLLOW ME ON TUMBLR PEOPLE if you havn't already!!). I love this look, it is very much Courtney Love/ Prom 1971/ 90s grunge/ a little Virgin Suicides. The dress was given to me by Momma Russo on my 15th birthday but I never really started wearing it until this year. Perfect summer dress for those last few hot days. 

In other news I went shopping today. Their was a 2 dollar sale at Salvation Army so of course I had to go! I want to take some pictures of my haul to show you. I love sharing my finds, to show how awesome I am at thrifting (insert sarcasm, I am not that conceited I swear!). And in even better there is a Value Village Sale coming up next week so I will be set for back to school shopping (clothing wise, i haven't even began to think about school supplies, nor opened the backpack that has been sitting in the far corner of my room for three months).

In other, other news I entered the Teen Vogue Snapshot contest. I don't think it is a voting thing or anything but if you want to check out my entry here is the link. And I don't even think I am even eligible to win, since I live in Canada but I wanted to enter anyway. No harm in trying.


New Post Soon!

  1. ljsdflkjslfj PERFECTION. Love, love, LOVEEEE it. And seriously. Those shoes? EPIC. Just --- ah. I WANT THEM!

    And ah, what? Salvation Army has $2 sales? I'm so ashamed that I didn't know about this! Please inform me the next time one occurs!

    And eeek. So stoked for the VV sale. I've literally had this down in my calendar for the week. Best day of the summer? Pretty much.
