Betsey Johnson shopping spree!


Our Betsey Johnson boutique recently had a sale.

And I went nuts.

It was buy one get one free, so I ended up buying two dresses and two purses.

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to pay next month's rent now, but fortunately my mind isn't programmed to be alarmed about that until the day before rent is due.

I am in love with Betsey Johnson's designs and have always longed to own one of her dresses. I cannot believe I am now the owner of TWO.

I picked this whimsical floral dress because I thought the bright colors complimented my skin tone. I can imagine wearing this dress to a picnic in the park or out shopping.



I fell in love with this little black party dress the moment I laid eyes on it. It is so much fun and so sexy and so cute. I can imagine dancing in this dress at wedding receptions, showing it off while I sit demurely at wine bars, or just wearing it out grocery shopping!



I love vintage hat boxes. So when I came across this pink summery round purse, I knew it was meant to be mine. I matched it here with my new Ralph Lauren sun dress.



My fourth purchase. A fab, caj bag.



And to top the night off, I took some random pictures with my boyfriend, Rian.
