Buenas Noches feat. Girrr

Meet Girr, my friend/photog of the day's dog. I thought it would be great to work with live animals and prepped him by grooming him on the couch with belly rubs. I think it was the leash that scared him, or his pregnant mom laughing so hard her baby was pushing on her bladder and she was trying not to pee as she took these photos of us. I think maybe it was the hat that scared him, but I'd go one way, and he'd go towards Caitlin. Not a way to walk a dog.

Come on Gir, let's be friends. I love dogs. Snoopy, Snoop, Bow Wow, Clifford, Chili Cheese, Lassie, and I still have Chris Brown on my old Ipod. 

hat- forever 21 many moons ago
top- thrifted nightgown I cut short in the front and let hang in the back
skirt- thrifted 99 cents
belt- thrifted 99 cents
vintage domino bracelet- made by me
shoes- TJ Maxx, no, im not a Maxionista. I was depressed and at a weak moment, purchased retail.

Besos from me and Girrgy.

The moral of this blog was not about how animals have souls, or how they are our friends, or about my allergies to them which I failed to mention. That would be too easy.

The moral of this post was that nightwear is great for day. When thrifting, always head to the nightwear section and see what you can find to turn into a top, dress, skirt, whatever. Caitlin suggested I wear something over this red lace slip, to give it a peek a boo effect and I did. I can't sew, but I have done a thing or two with a pair of scissors. 

Buenas noches all day long in your nightwear,


  1. you look gorgeous!

  3. Good suggestion from Caitlin! I love the effect the skirt has with it.. I like your wedges so much, I feel the same way, a moment of weakness and not buy at a thrift store. I barely ever do it though.. thrift stores 4 life. haha ^-^

  4. Hahah I love this little story! And agree that nightwear is sometimes even PRETTIER than day wear, I have several tops that were nightwear and just WAY too nice to leave for the bedroom!
