Spring Me Roses


Dress: Betsey Johnson, found on eBay
Belt: thrifted
Shoes: Target
Bag: thrifted vintage

Jasen and I just got two more discs of Mad Men from Netflix, so with that in mind I pulled this retro Betsey Johnson sheath out of my closet. I know, I know, jewel tones on black again, but I tried to make it more springy with a really bright belt and tan accessories.

I don’t know why I’ve never worn this dress for a blog post before. It’s one of my favorites, especially because I had to hunt it down over several months. It was on the MyShape website when I worked there, but the lowest the price got on the site was about $200 before it sold out. I found the dress elsewhere online for about $200 after that and kept checking to see if it was still available, but I could never justify $200. Then I found it on eBay (pre-owned) for something like $60 including shipping. Yay!

I feel somewhat better about my EDD interview on Monday because today I got a call from a company to set up a job interview on Tuesday. It’s a copywriting job, not in fashion/retail but with web emphasis, which should be a pretty good fit for me. The commute would also be very short, just 20 minutes with traffic, and it’s an established company, so I’m hoping it works out.
