Clothes and Oreos

dress: F21         necklace: DIY (tutorial here)        belt: thrifted            shoes: thrifted

Forever 21 has been good to me lately you guys...a little too good. I mean usually I spend at least an hour walking through rooms of chambray shirts and tribal mini skirts and singing to freakin' Demi Lovato, and I just get a little overwhelmed and also furious at Demi Lovato.Then I usually proceed to think about the delicious pretzel joint across the way and how a warm oh so soft pretzel just seems way more appetizing than sifting through hundreds of chiffon blouses so I just you know end up with one of those delicious cinnamon sugar pretzels and call it a day. But fah real, lately every time I go these beautiful things just fly into my arms and then I love at least oh...fifteen things and isn't that an amazing problem to have! Bravo to you F21, bravo.

One more thing. Today I was in the cookie section of the grocery store debating between Oreos and those fake Samoa's, you know the one that the little Keebler elves make and this guy came up to me and told me his favorite cookie and then proceeded to explain how he really shouldn't be in the cookie aisle because he recently lost 60 lbs, 60 LBS!! And then of course I needed convincing because I was like, NOOOOO!!! I DON'T BELIEVE YOU!!! So he whipped out his Facebook page and long story short he did indeed lose 60 lbs and we might be Facebook friends now....

There is no purpose to me telling you this. But I just thought, How great is this?! I wish I made cookie aisle friends every day at the grocery store!! We should all better support one another's sugar addictions! And so well, now you know. Also I chose Oreos, which I believe is a critical point in this story. The end. 


  1. I am obsessed with that dress. It is gorgeous!! :)

  2. Oreos are always my choice. I especially love Cool Mint.

    And good ol' F21. I will always look back on the one month I worked there in 2011 (I was offered a promotion before I quit!) with fond memories. Mostly just of when the store closed at night & the manager would turn the music off while we put boatloads of cheap clothing back in there almost right place in total silence.

  3. You forgot to link to the DIY for that necklace I think! At least I'm not able to click anything and I would loooooove to learn! It's SO cute!

  4. AMAZING dress! and i love oreos. good choice.

  5. A mutual love of cookies sounds like a great way to start off a friendship, as long as there isn't any fighting over the last one.....

  6. Loving the print in this dress!


  7. Awesome outfit! And what a hilarious story! It's very "norm" for people to tell you their life story in the grocery store! It was very weird when we first moved to Montana, we'd get super creeped out and be like "um...TMI..."

    I would also like to say something that I don't want you to take as being mean or anything, but have you ever thought about what your necklace is pointing to? I just wanted to mention this because I would want someone to tell me.
    You have a lovely blog and I always enjoy reading your witty posts!
