The Smell of Rain

Just a poor farm girl digging at non-existent holes in the ground. I was clearly very productive with my time.

Couldn’t resist taking advantage of the cloudy weather in San Diego today to take some photos. It was actually still too hot to wear this outfit but I wanted to do a rainy day look since it was drizzling. Not that San Diegans know anything about dressing for rainy weather. *all the British people say Amen* I just googled U.K weather and found “Flood warning as parts of country see month’s worth of rain in just 48 hours”. 0_0 Hi U.K. if you don’t mind could you send some of those rain clouds our way we are slowly turning into an actual desert plz thanks.

Thrift Hauls

Nice to Meet You

Welcome to One Shaggy Dog! I want to make this a sort of journal / personal style record so I’ll start off with my last thrift store mini haul. This thrift took place after a bit of oral surgery. I had to go the dentists’ office to get a cavity filled. It wasn’t a big deal – my dentist just pulled a syringe out of nowhere and stabbed my cheek with it. It only took 20 minutes before I was walking out with a new filling. There was a Goodwill on the way back home, so me and my sister decided to indulge in some retail therapy while we were recovering from having our teeth drilled into. This is what I found on that trip.

Yes, the bananas are that iconic. Here is an artist’s illustration of Andy Warhol with bananas on his head.

Pusheens everywhereeee

I had declared my shopping finished when I found this dress hidden on the rack. First impression – WOW SUCH COLORS / DO I WANT? / WANTTT. My wardrobe has its fair share of color but the sheer brightness of this dress is beyond anything I have. My intelligent, reasonable younger sister, upon seeing what I found, rolls her eyes so far up north they reach Canada. I ignored her protests and headed to the dressing room. The sleeves were a bit small on my arms but the dress surprisingly fit. I struggled with justifying whether to get it or not, but it was too cool to pass up. I haven’t gotten to wear it out yet – still waiting for some sign from the universe to break it out. I think if I lived in a bustling place like NYC I would have no problem wearing something so flashy. The pace of life in San Diego is a lot slower. College students (including me) all dress like “The Dude” everyday in our pajamas and flip flops so this dress would stick out like a Maglite being shoved into your face.
