we'll give it a shot

I have some news for you today, blogger friends!
but first, today's outfit.

dress- Kensie
tights- Modcloth
boots- Forever 21
cardigan- Forever 21

I decided it was time to wear the adorable dress again. last time I covered up the top, so this time I wanted it to be more open. the first thing I chose to go with it were these sweater tights, because I just love red and I haven't worn red tights in a while, as I recall. then I chose the boots- easy to walk in, plus played down the fancier feel of the dress & updo.

thing is, it was like a sauna in my apartment this morning, so I really didn't want to pick out a sweater. but of course reality sets in when you're outside in the snow. first I actually had on my long grey short sleeved cardi. then I happened upon this one and thought it was much more fun. I love mixing patterns.

overall a pretty haphazard outfit, but cute, I think!

I was sort of considering adding this cardigan to the "get rid of pile" since I have a black & white one coming in the mail from Mel as I type. but I couldn't resist. and anyway, that brings me to my bit of news; I put some items up on "shop in the ocean," aka my shop blog.

I know, I know, cheesy name, but I didn't have any better ideas! and it went with the theme.

I put up six things today (it takes so long!) and plan on putting up more tonight, then tomorrow, until I get everything in my pile posted. and believe me, there is A LOT of stuff. so check it out!

and if you see something you think someone else might like, please pass the link along. I really need to get rid of this stuff, and I plan on donating what doesn't sell in a couple months. so I'd rather get a few extra bucks in the meantime!

I posted the original price of each item so that you know I'm not ripping you off...but I can still have a couple dollars left after shipping. if anyone wants to argue a price, or ask questions, or even possibly suggest some things you might like to see, go ahead and email me!

there's a link to the "shop" in my sidebar.

now, I'm not really expecting a whole lot of sales from this (or even any) with such a small following, but I thought I'd give it a shot. and who better to sell your clothes to than fellow shopping addicts who apparently like your style??

hope something catches your eye. :o)

playing: CSI on tv (I am so happy that show is on practically all day!)
