Dress, bag and shoes: thrifted
I found this railroad-striped dress at Quality Thrift the last time I went. I didn’t think it would fit me since the shirtdresses I find usually don’t, so I was pretty happy when it did! I love the Peter Pan collar and crisp ruffles.
And I’m also wearing the bow shoes I was flipping out about in my blog post on Tuesday. I picked them up from Zinke’s yesterday and then cleaned them last night. They have a small gash on one of the heels, but it’s not very noticeable.
Now for a little food porn...
Jasen took me to lunch today at our favorite Mexican place in Pasadena, Chiquita Bonita. I LOVE Mexican food and grew up eating it a lot, at home and at little mom and pop restaurants since they’re everywhere in Southern California. My mom’s mom grew up on a ranch near (on in, I’m not sure) Tucumcari, New Mexico, part of a Spanish land grant that her family had lived on for a few hundred years. She used to cook some amazing meals for us, and my mom also frequently made enchiladas, tacos, tostadas and burritos for me and my sister and brothers.
