I had a banner day! When I woke up this morning, I was still on cloud nine from all the positive feedback to yesterday's confidence post. Then, I checked my blog stats to find that I had surpassed a new milestone. Thanks, guys! I absolutely LOVE pouring my heart and soul into this blog and knowing that so many of you read it, enjoy it, and even look forward to it means more to me than I could ever express in words.

THEN, I found out that I won a DVF dress from The Small Fabric of My Life! Holla! Thank you sooooo much. I can't wait to get it in the mail!

Then, I went to a job that pays half of what I used to make, yet walked out with a smile on my face, knowing that I had made a positive impact on at least one person's day. THEN, I came home to a couple of awesome emails from a couple of awesome ladies. SOOO....

I did a little happy dance! Hope you're all having a GREAT week!

(Oh, yeah ... what am I wearing? This is the Limited top I thrifted the other day for 14 and a half cents. RIDICULOUS! It's paired with a pair of Limited shorts from Ross for $13, a leopard H&M belt ($12) and a pair of JCP patent flats ($8). And because I'm a sucker for a kitschy trend, I just HAD to have my own anchor necklace which is a craft store charm (3/$2) on a gold chain.)
