Party dress


I unintentionally took a vacation from my blog last week. Normally I have a low-key life full of lots of free time, but last week was nuts. First, I started taking a tax class at H&R Block so that I can become a certified tax preparer, and for the first time in seven years I had to spend my nights doing homework. Then on Wednesday I got to be an extra on the TV show Portlandia! (If you watch the show, keep an eye out for the scene with the communal table - I'm the girl in the beige lace dress with a red and sweaty face. It was freaking hot under all those lights.) Then on Friday we took off for a weekend at the beach with some friends. I actually really enjoyed last week, but it left me with hardly any down time.

This outfit was from a week ago - I wore it to a three-year-old's birthday party. She speaks French as well as English, and likes to snack on brie and crackers and edamame. So basically, she's more sophisticated than I am.



Dress: vintage, gift from my mom
Black faux leather jacket: Forever 21
Gold sandals: Asos
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Earrings: purchased at a church craft fair
Bracelet: gift, from Italy

    1. I applied months ago - I think back in May or June - and it took until last week to hear anything, so they might just be slow about contacting people to be extras. Hope you get a chance to do it!

  2. What an incredible dress...I love that pattern and the colours are gorgeous! You have the best finds in your closet, I'm quite jealous. Sounds fun being an extra! I just watched a TV episode filmed in Portland and fell in love with the city. Would love to act on a show there!

    1. I can also tell that she's going to be insanely gorgeous when she grows up, so she's got that going for her too - so unfair :)

  9. How cool you got to be an extra!! I've never watched the show, but now I will at least have to watch your episode.

    Love the jacket with that dress, and damn that three year old for being so sophisticated and making us look bad.

  11. I have weeks like that when you seem to be on the go all the time and wonder where your real life went. So fun to be an extra - should really look into that as we are so close to productions here in Toronto.
