Aaaaaah, the dreaded afterwork photo-op!
Why am I so bad about waking up that extra 5min early to take care of this in the morning when I'm all bright eyed and bushy tailed?
Ok, so here's the deal...
You might recall I wore this last weekend, or in whatever post was my last Weekend Rewind.
Although then, I was not able to get a proper full outfit shot, and I was wearing my girl-gang vest.
This here, well this is more how I planned to wear it that particular Saturday night.
Just goes to show, my weekend attire (although very much on the short side of town) can pull double duty and suit my needs for the "ever so fashionable" fashion industry in which I work.
This dress here, its one of my newer of vintage purchases.
It's from Beacon's Closet of course, where I find myself frequenting more and more these days.
I like the goldenrod and brown coloration, always a tell-tale '70s sign.
In fact, these shades, along with the rusty tobacco color of the purse, remind me of nothing but the 1970's...even when paired on modern day attire.
Last time I wore it, I think I had way too many eras going on in one outfit...I had the dress, then I had a 1950's brown clutch (same shade as my boots), then I had one of my vintage owls, and then these modern day boots.
I think I did a better job this time around of toning it down a notch knowing the dress speaks loud enough for itself. No need to go and confuse the general public as to what I'm really going for here.
This time, a little more simplistic, it was key to me really liking my outfit today.

And woohoo--tomorrow is Friday!
This girl right here...I've got a relaxing, not nearly as crazy as usual, weekend lined up and I'm rather quite looking forward to keeping myself in check and not getting all trainwreck crazy like this summer proved to be for me.
