A pair of pink canaries



Better late than never, right? This is what I wore out on my birthday for Indian food and soft-serve in the rain.



I actually found this dress at Buffalo Exchange during the day on my birthday, and treated myself. It has the sweetest little flower print, which can be seen here on the far left.



In the days between then and now, it has grown progressively hotter, reminding me that I still need shorts and tank tops and all those things that leave as many of my 2000 parts free and exposed to the world. I require ventilation! Also, I got the most amazing package in the mail yesterday:

I have:

It's a wonderful feeling knowing that someone out there truly understands just exactly what you love in this world, right down to remembering the weird ceramic bud vase from some tiny store back home you were totally obsessed with last summer. Amazing. Also, the girl hand bleach-painted that skull t-shirt herself. I keep telling her she needs to go into business selling those things! So. Bad. Ass.

that's a really adorable birthday present! i'm such a fan of the "multi present", lots of littler gifts the person will love rather than one big thing. your dress is cute too. p.s. do you do anything to your hair? your waves look so smooth and shiny!
