"Citrus, Rust, and Blood"

Last call to enter my Jose Eber flatiron GIVEAWAY!!!

Just in...this lovely and divine tapestry dress from ASOS... 
I've been digging the Baroque trend that's been out this season, but wanted to pick something I could keep wearing for seasons to come. This has such a classic shape and beautiful Renaissance-esque floral that it'll cross over quite easily. I'm like that -- I can't justify buying into trends that I know will be gone in a few months!  I also liked that it's got styling potential...meaning I can wear it with all my bright coloured tights :)

Kinda the same story as those killer sneaker-heels in my post a couple days ago (check 'em out!).

And as far as ASOS is concerned...I'm telling you, it's seriously my new go-to for shopping!  
I think they've got the best selection of clothing anywhere around -- super on trend stuff, super gorgeous reproduction vintage stuff, romantic and modern, girly to edgy.  Plus I love the steals and deals (this dress and those sneakers were a Black Fri purchase) and the free express 2-day shipping isn't so shabby :)

I really need to get something figured out camera and location I'm sure your naked eye can tell, I'm using a five-year-old point and shoot Sony camera that is on it's last freakin' leg!!!  It's really starting to just not work at all...the flash is out, the photos turn out blurry, and the quality overall is just not so hot.  I'd really like to be posting something better on the ol' blog.  Same deal with photo's hard to get winter photos since the light goes before I even get off of work at the end of the day.  Not to mention, the snow makes any "off road" photo locales impossible unless I want to post snow pants pictures.  So I'm still trying to figure out spots to take photos...and wishing for the ca$h to invest in a new camera!!!

These boots are flannel-lined...real plus these days, just wanna throw that out there...especially on those days when it's raining and frozen at the same time somehow :)
