The Ol' Switcheroo: Interview at Daisy Disdain

So a couple of weeks ago, I reached out to some ladies in the blogosphere to see if I could interview them to be featured here at B&RV. (Which, p.s., if you'd like to be featured/interviewed, let me know!) And no sooner did I send my request to Rebecca at Daisy Disdain (one of my fellow Shaped by Style bloggers) that she not only responded, but turned the tables on me and invited me to be featured on her blog! Which I thought was awesome.


You can read the full interview here. Thanks, Rebecca, for featuring me! Look for my interview with Rebecca coming soon — I'm trying to stockpile some interviews for a weekly series that will start running in the fall.

Easy Going: Striped T + overalls dress

Simple is not usually my thing. But every now and then I'll fall for a more pared-down outfit, which was the case here.

Thrift Audit: Salvation Army, June 12

Is it really possible that I went all the way from May 31 to June 12 without thrifting anything? It's possible, I suppose ... and it does also explain why I went completely insane at the Salvation Army.

Doing My Best: Houndstooth trousers + print cardigan

When I was taking these pictures, I was imagining myself posting something self-deprecating about how this wasn't my best effort, and that this outfit is on the boring side, and none of it is vintage, and blah blah blah.

Thrift Audit: May 16, Church rummage sale part 2 + yard sales

As I wrote last week, I've been double-dipping on rummage sales — snatching up choice goodies when the doors open, and then coming back to pick the bones on bag sale day. But before I could double back to the rummage sale I visited on May 15, I had a whole town's worth of yard sales to visit, and boy was it worth it. And since the whole day was pretty much a blur, I've lumped everything together in one dizzying post.

One From the Vault: Striped polo + suspender skirt

I was a bad blogger and did not line up any posts for the week I was away visiting family in Oregon, so I'm playing catch-up now. Fortunately, I have a few outfit photos tucked away for just such an occasion ...

Circus dress @ Shaped by Style

I'm still in vacation-recovery mode, but I'm popping in to give you a peek at my latest post on Shaped by Style. Can we TALK about this dress? Because I'm totally in love with it, as you can see from my smug expression.
