On Camera OOTD

Today was the last day of my acting workshop and I got to go on camera for the first time since my fifth grade birthday party! I think I did well and I got very positive feedback from my acting instructor and group. I'm a happy girl tonight. :)

I haven't been posting as frequently as I would like to because of the holidays, family birthdays, and other recent momligations, but I promise to blog more! Ideally, I would like post most weekdays. Now that I have said it publicly perhaps I will actually do it!

Don't mind my orb, please. It was past my photographer's bedtime, so I wasn't picky about my photos. :P

Cardigan: Gap - $40.00
Dress: Anthropologie Grand Cru Dress - $80.00
Tights: George brand from Walmart - $5.00
Shoes: Charlotte Russe - $10.00

As you have noticed, I am kind of obsessed with my cheap shoes from Charlotte Russe. I love them and could literally wear them every day of the week. Sometimes I actually do. I'm crazy for cap toe ballet flats and am planning on grabbing a pair of these from eBay with my birthday money:

J. Crew Abby Flats

Also on the top of my wishlist is a pair of flat, brown boots. I'm looking at a couple different styles from Frye and I'm definitely lusting after these babies from Anthro:

Which do you like better? Do you know of any great boots I need to see? I welcome all suggestions!


  1. You look fabulous! I tried on the Bowtied-Beauty Boots but end up returning it. The bow tie sticks out somehow and make the calf look overwhelming big. I suspect from your slim figure you will run into the same problem. But hey, there is no harm to try it on :-) I bought matisse's boots from and loved it. It is non-refunable so it is a risky buy. They have other style too so check it out.

  2. Girl, that dress needs a cluster style charm necklace! A thin chain with a little cluster of of danglies from a single focal point - like a hoop charm or something, with black accents. Hmm...maybe I'll make something like that since it's inspired me, though I imagine there's lots online like that already. I love the boots! And that dress is awesome. Are these Anthropologie dresses online only? They're so cute, but I dont do the online clothes shopping thing...

  3. @Inkmark Thanks for the suggestions. Overstock has a lot of good looking pairs!

    Dorota, you are right! You have a great eye for accessories. It appears that there are Anthropologie stores in Portland and Tigard, OR. I don't know how close that is to you...

  4. I almost bought those shoes from Charlotte Russe! Love me some cheap flats.

  5. Hi Maggie!

    I love them. I found them uncomfortable the first I wore them, but now they are the most comfortable flats I own and cute as hell- For $10!
