Frocking Friday

I'm happy to report my fireworks were highly enjoyable and I still have all my digits :)  My animals, especially Peetee, hate the fireworks.  This year I gave him some happy pills and he seemed to sleep through most of it, that's the way to go next year!

I picked up this dress recently at Ross for $11. I am really loving all the colors in it!
 I found these boots made by Sugar on ebay last year for $15.
I made this necklace with this gorgeous iridescent pendant given to me by our much missed Helga!
Did you know that I will be meeting her, G and Bella next week?  I know, somebody pinch me please!
I'm very excited and a wee bit nervous too.  We shall take Portland by storm!

I almost forgot to mention, I had the threading done on my eyebrows and liked it.  I also did my chin area which is now breaking out so I don't think I'll do that again but I would definitely go back to get my brows done.
I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
 Next week will be total insanity!  Bring it!  I can hardly wait.

I'm in a mixture of panic and excitment Krista! I'm working up until the day of, am a big space cadet with social anxiety. That said, it's going to be fun! I hope I can find my bus tickets!

That dress is pretty awesome- I see it deftly fitting into your fall wardrobe.

And I get to see you brows (and chin) for myself in a matter of day! whooooot!

I love those boots, they are amazing! I could do with something similar right now. I can't believe you're meeting Helga, so envious. Give her a kiss from me and let her know how much we're all missing her. Xx

I'm so darned excited to see the pair of you meet up, I think I may combust with excitement when I see the photos!
I adore that frock, very Missoni, and those boots are gorgeous. I've only seen flatties by Sugar, I didn't know they sold sophisticated beauties like that!
Glad your digits are intact and that the threading went well! I can see sunshine, hope you had a beautiful weekend with hours of sun! Love you! xxxxxxxxxx
