Dress from California Select

I can't tell you how much I love this dress!!! For ten days I looked at it everyday on ebay counting down the seconds that I could make that bid and it would be mine. Sunday night there I was with 30 seconds left making that bid, it was mine but only for a few more seconds before someone made a higher bid. As fast as I could I tried to make another bid to keep the dream alive, but there wasn't enough time. I lost the dress by just a couple seconds! Sense that night I have been obsessively searching the web for a dress similar. Sadly nothing comes close to my love for this dress! If anyone has any information about a dress similar to this please contact asap! Oh Ebay, I love and I hate you so! :o)

Hi again! I hope everyone has been well! I had a good break, which included getting new auctions ready for ebay and lots of blog reading. This is what I wore yesterday to go see The Reader with Jonny. I liked the movie very much, though it wasn't the most uplifting film. The past few weeks I have been trying to see as many Oscar nominated films as possible, so I'm very excited for the awards tonight. Today, I have yet to get out of my pajama's. At the moment I have a loaf of maple oat bread in the oven, that I can't wait to have along with a cup of peppermint tea. Unfortunately we are awaiting yet another foot of snow, which is supposed to start any minute. It seemed for a few days at least that spring was near, but living up north I should know better. I'm seriously thinking of moving to the south! Liebemarlene here I come!! Have a lovely week everyone! :o)

I know my posts have been kind of random lately, which I think it has something to do with the Winter Blues. So, I've decided to take a week or so off from blogging. Not very long really, but worth letting you all know. I haven't been feeling very inspired to take pictures lately, probably because I feel like I'm wearing the same outfit over and over again. I just can't wait until spring, when I can wear all of my favorite spring dresses and walk around picking flowers...hehe! I started this blog back in October, so I haven't really had the chance to take pictures wearing my favorite dresses yet. I thought I'd leave you with with some pictures that make me happy and make me think of spring! :o)
Talk to you soon! I promise to have a post that's worth the wait.

I've been tagged by the very lovely Ariella of Pearls In Your Hair to do the Fashionista tag! This is a fun one, thanks Ariella!
Describe your personal style?
-Well, it's a combination of things. I guess you could say, girly, quirky, retro and fun.
What are the staples in your wardrobe?
-Dresses, dresses and more dresses! Cardigans, boots, flats, and a good pair of jeans/pants.
What's your signature look?
-Almost everyday I wear a dress. During the winter with tights, a sweater and boots. In the summer with a pair of flats or sandals.
What inspires you most?
-Old movies, magazines, bloggers, and girls I see on the street.
Who is your fashion muse?
-I have tons! I'll go in order of theirs pictures below. Jean Seberg, Zooey Deschanel, Blair from Gossip Girls, Clara a fellow blogger, Audrey Hepburn, Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Williams and her adorable little girl Matilda and Chuck from Pushing Daisies.
Favorite purchase of all time?
-Probably my Betsy Johnson wedding dress. It's lovely, and the best part is I can still wear it.
-I seem to spend the biggest bucks on boots. I do live in Maine though, so they're very necessary!
What's your beauty routine?
-Not much I'm afraid. I wear Aveeno Positively Radiant with SPF 15 everyday. When it comes to makeup none really, though I do have to have lipgloss on at all times.
What jewelry do you never take off?
-My wedding ring, my engagement ring and my yellow bangle, it's made of bakelite and it's from the 1930's.
What are you wishing for?
-Everything from Built by Wendy's spring 2009 collection, especially the little white ruffle dress! I already told Jonny that's what I want for my birthday, my birthday isn't until June though...haha! Also I'm on the lookout for a vintage bathing suit.

Today I was delighted when Jonny surprised me with a trip to H&M. I went in with the intention of getting just a purse, but I spotted these high-waisted sailor pants, and had to try them on. Then on the way to the dressing room I spotted this fantastic striped sweater, so I had to try that on of course! Jonny loved the outfit so much I didn't even have to ask if I could get both. I rarely wear pants, but when I do they have to be three things: high-waisted, wide legged and they must have sailor buttons. :o)
Everything is H&M
