A New Beginning....

Sorry I have been gone for the past week or so. Last Wednesday I started grad school and my graduate assistantship. To say that I was/am a bit overwhelmed is an understatement. It definitely was a bit difficult to get back into the swing of things, but now that I have started both classes, I have a better feel for things and my new schedule.

I wore this two weekends ago, while it was still hot enough here to wear a summer dress; it has since cooled off considerably. This is also the last photo of me with long hair -- I got a haircut the day after this photo was taken. I am also sporting my new bakelite bracelets that I found at an estate sale for $1 each!!! My first time finding bakelite in the "wild!!"


Dress and Bakelite Hoops: eBay

Sweater: Target

Bakelite Bracelets: Estate Sale

Congratulations on finding the bakelite bangles-- and only a little after a month after we talked about wanting to find them in the 'wild'!! I've been such a bad blogger lately, I still haven't even posted about your visit! My internet has been pretty iffy at my apartment lately. :( I'll be dropping my pieces off in Kalamazoo this Thursday-- know of any spots I should hit on the way from Chicago to Kalamazoo?
