This dress again

I am beginning to think that I will wear this dress (and apparently these shoes too) everyday this summer.  It's pretty much perfect.  I've been searching for more of these project dresses that I can chop up and make perfect like I did with this one.  It started out much longer and very frumpy then I turned it into FRUMP CHIC!,  at least I like to think so!  It reminds me sort of of something by Marc Jacobs.  I love the weird prints, patterns and ruffles. 

 Before noon today, we had driven all over the city.  Had breakfast in the marina (which we usually avoid) then a walk on Baker beach followed by a drive down Haight and Castro and to Dolores park where I had a picnic with some lady friends.  What a lovely day!  There were so many cute dogs out today, after being aggressively barked out this morning by a mean one (tied to a poll), it was nice to meet so many sweet/normal dogs. 

I am wearing

Feather Earrings-self made (Pretty Pirate Designs)
Dress-Thrifted and altered
Great cardigan-Nordstrom (gift from mom, thanks mom I wear it all the time!)
Cream sweater-Jcrew super soft wool, thrifted (lucky find for 5$)
Belt-Grandpa's old belt
80's leather sandals-thrifted in my home town (it's spring so I can finally wear them, they're perfect)
Nail polish-OPI My private jet

I love ruffles. It looks nice out on the beach there. Is it expensive to live near there? I've always wondered what living around there would be like. Guess I'll just have to keep following your blog..
