Velvet, Lace, and What?!

Hello everyone. I feel like I hate getting up early on Monday morning to take Emily to school. It's the whole process from having the weekend off and then having to get up and get two kids out the door starting at 7:30..blah...I usually crawl out of bed and throw something comfy on, and put on the leopard Anyway, I hope that you all had a good weekend. Friday night was girls night for me, it was lot's of fun, and much needed. For the rest of the weekend, I ended up taking Christmas decorations down, putting up all of the rest of Valentines decorations, blog pics, and going out to eat with the kids. I think there were some Goodwill stops too, I am looking for some bookcases that I can put all of my shoes in! I want to paint them hot pink and once I get those then I can organize all the rest...

Vintage dress: $3.99 from Goodwill
Boots SO OLD! I have had these for 4 years, and you can see that they have been through some snow I love them too much to throw them out although they are nasty.
Tights: $5.00 from Kmart

Total look: $14.99

and the inspiration:

So, I am not this skinny! and I had a different take on the look. I wanted to do something with more color and fun..something more me, and well something more figure flattering.
What do you think?

and this is what I want to do for all of my shoes and paint it hot pink!

Today I am linking up with:
