Winn Dixie

Jacket, Forever 21 (embellished by me because I heart ball trim). Blouse, Merona. Skirt, Andre Oliver (thrifted and shortened). Peeptoes, Wild Diva. Bag, World Market. Headband, self-made. Earrings, No Boundaries. Bracelet, Pangaea.

I entitled this post “Winn Dixie” because I was going issue a plea for paper Winn Dixie grocery sacks to be used a play prop. Instead, we’re using Harris Teeter (and a coworker is shuttling them to Cincinnati), but thanks anyway! I know I can count on y’all next time I need some exotic props. (P.S. Come see Messiah on the Frigidaire. I watched a run-through on Tuesday and it is HILARIOUS.)



Jumping for joy because I have locale-appropriate grocery sacks on the way:



I think I may have dented the floor when I landed

You look adorable today! I lust after that headband every time you wear it. I really need to make on for myself.

Do you have any pics of the yellow shirt? I get the impression that it is a sweet little blouse and I would love to see the whole thing. Also - I'm totally thinking about stealing this look one day soon. Hope you are flattered rather than annoyed. :)

Tina,

I'm wearing the shirt with nothing over it here:

I don't mind if you copy me! I copy others all the time.

That looks great! I'm inspired to start making clothes with a more vibrant punch!

I really enjoy your fashion statements day after day! I am admittedly very unstylish so take my critique with a grain of salt.

Your brightly colored shoes always sort of freak me out! I was stylish in the 80's so understand your love. Just think too many outfits are ruined in my opinion by your brightly colored 80's stylin' shoes! My hang up I know and have read other commenters adoring them :)

My hang up but just my 2 cents.. Brightly colored shoes aside you dress divine my dear :)

I don't care if I've said this before but I totally LOVE your headband and your cute poses. You're not only stylish but talented as well.

Glad you liked the play. (I wrote it.) Wish I'd seen your blog sooner, I could have gotten you bags from some true southern traditions, even good old Piggly Wiggly. By the way, you are lovely, with a tremendous sense of style. I happened upon your blog when I Googled Messiah on the Frigidaire to check out what's being said about it. Hope the play goes well. If you need anything else let me know.
