OOTD: Vodka tonic.

Man.

We've been having freezer problems since last week. We thought it would be ok! Call service guy, quick fix, okay. But the Best Buy Geek Squad dude came by yesterday (did you know the Geek Squad handles freezer emergencies? Neither did I...) and said we'd have to order parts, and if that didn't work, we'll have to get a new one. And wait for another week until they can get someone to fix this already one week old problem. And allllll that food that's spoiled? Well, we'll give you a few bucks towards the spoilage. Even though your wedding cake is in there and it is now an official carrier of some sort of food poisoning that will wreak havoc in your intestines. Great.

Ahem. So what's a girl to do? Make vodka tonics to deal with the stress that ironically have no ice in them because... wait for it... THERE IS NO ICE IN OUR 52 DEGREE FREEZER. 

In other news (aka, non-gastro-intestinal-discomfort news)-- Here's the Perilla dress in all her glory! Yaaaayyyy.... (sorry. Having trouble not being totally annoyed.)

Dress: Anthropologie Perilla dress (scored on sale!)
Tank: Nordstrom (from TBD) lace tank
Shoes: Charles Charles David tassle pumps (so old but so classic!!)
Necklace: Juicy Couture locket charm necklace


p.s., I realize roots are noticeable heinous. Roots will be taken care of this weekend. Meaning: I'm going brown. Stay tuned... especially since this will be a mother-in-law weekend project. Gulp.

    Alrightie, you definitely look waaaay better in the Perilla dress than I do. I think I totally blend in with the beige and ivory too!

    Ooh, I'm intrigued by the soon-to-be new hair.

  13. That really stinks about your refrigerator! On a good note, this dress is gorgeous on you. I scored it on sale as well, but I'm not quite sure if I'm holding onto it or not since I feel like maybe I should have snagged a M instead of a S...
