"Oooooo, I hear laughter in the rain.....walking hand in hand......"

Simplicity.  Throw on and go.  And to give my tootsies a slight reprieve from tall heels, a cute little pair of gold flats.  I love metallic shoes, because there's nothing to match.  They just look great with everything!  I did some closet culling a couple of days ago, and came across this dress in my "to do" pile.  I thrifted it for pennies (it was brand new with a tag still on) because I loved the pattern.  It was huge I also thought it would be good for me to practice my sewing on.  So I took it in a BUNCH in the arms, some in the skirt fullness and then took off about an inch or so from the length.  I came across this gold Greek Key ribbon in my sewing box and loved the way it looked up next to the dress.  Realizing the dress has a seam straight down the front, I decided to add the ribbon to it and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  I think the shoes just kept it "sweet" and easy!  Happy Weekend to you!!!  

By the way, I've been regularly listing some great finds on ebay, so feel free to  take a  LOOK if you're interested.
