Acting Workshop OOTD

Today was a pretty mellow day filled with the much of the usual. I did go to Walmart, which I've decided is more enjoyable than I was previously willing to admit because no one cares what kind of language you use there! Walmart is were I go to vent, use expletives, and buy laundry detergent (and tights apparently). On this day, I was shopping for my oldest son's birthday and much of my week will entail cleaning up for his Sunday birthday party.

About a month or so ago, I thought I would try acting. Tonight was the second night of a four part acting workshop I'm attending. FYI: I'm not a very serious person. I don't think I could ever call myself an actress. I'm just a normal person who is trying to act basically.  :)

This is what I wore:

Dress: Anthropologie Vappu Dress - $59.95
Shirt: American Eagle (circa 2006) - $17.00
Sash: J. Crew (circa 2008) - $10.00
Tights: Unknown brand, purchased from Walmart in a two-pack - $3.50
Shoes: Charlotte Russe - $10.00

I got a request from a reader for me to list prices of the things I wear. I didn't realize until I started this blog that I am a rather thrifty shopper. I've gotten a lot of encouraging feedback about my "personal style" (again, I am too silly to view myself as a "fashionista" of sorts, much like I'll never call myself an "actress") and the blog in general. I thank every one of you from the bottom of my heart!

  1. The sash adds such interesting detail to your outfit. It kind of transforms the dress to something really different. At first glance I didn't even recognize it is the Vappu dress.

  2. Cute outfit. I love the Vappu dress. I have it in yellow. What are you talking about?!? Your hair is gorgeous!

  3. Shoes! Love them!
