what you're wearing: lauren

hi guys! i am starting a brand new series this morning. i've had a lot of fun doing my getting dressed series, so i thought it would be fun to introduce you to some others bloggers and show you what they're wearing as well!

i'm also including a fun interview section so that we can get to know more about their personal style! some of the questions are pretty awesome, if i do say so myself.

to get things started, lauren from busy bee lauren is sharing an outfit with us. have you guys met lauren? probably. she's kind of a big deal. if you haven't, make sure to pop in and say hello on her blog. i think you'll appreciate her honesty, joie de vivre, & awesome sense of humor. that's why i appreciate her anyway! :)

without further ado, i present:


dress: thrifted, vintage
coat: gift from a reader's grandma, vintage
pumps: thrifted, vintage
belt: gift from a friend's mom, vintage
bow pin: from the melrose flea market, vintage

1. where did you wear this outfit?
i wore this outfit our for a nice dinner with my husband. it was a little chilly outside, so i was delighted to wear a coat! first coat day of the year!

2. where are your favorite places to shop? favorite online stores?
my absolute favorite place to shop is goodwill. people always laugh at me, but seriously...i have SO many amazing vintage dresses and blouses from there. i love 50% off days! i also do some online shopping at my two favorite vintage ebay stores: vanda vintage & twitch vintage. both are amazing!

3. do you have a style icon?
i LOVE camilla belle. she is gorgeously flawless and i have never seen her in an outfit that was less than perfection. she inspires me daily! i also love rachel bilson and of course, zooey deschanel...but who doesn't?

4. what do you have the most fun shopping for and wearing? (i.e. sunglasses, jewelry, shoes, jeans, boots, sweaters, things with stripes, skirts, you get the idea)
definitely vintage dresses. i seem to always be on the hunt for another. and my collection is already quite ridiculous. but there is nothing like wearing a pretty dress. even if you are just grocery shopping! also, i think i enjoy wearing them so much, because they actually fit the curves of a woman! not the dresses these days that only fit girls without a butt. oh hai...i have a butt. i need room! :)

5. is there anything you would love to wear, but are timid to try?
i would love to wear rompers, but i am totally scared. i feel like there is a fine line between fabulous and frumpy, so i don't even know where to start.

and now for the silly/fun questions:

1. if your style spoke a language, what would it be?
i seriously have no idea. my style is totally eclectic. who knows!

2. what cartoon character best reflects your sense of style?
minnie mouse. she loved bold prints with bright color, and lots of fun!

3. what time period would you love to have dressed in?
the 60's and the 70's. such gorgeous clothes!

i hope you enjoyed the first edition to the new series! i think it's going to be a lot of fun! i already have a lot of great bloggers lined up to show us what they're wearing and inspire us with their personal style.
