  1. That dress was such a great find! You look gorgeous 🙂 It is so hard to get colour out of hair! I used to dye mine all kinds of crazy colours and once in the process of removing blue dye (to do a different dye job) I ended up with celery green hair!

  3. Mindie, you look great! Just like a calendar girl! I wish my hubs was as into taking the outfit pictures as yours. I havent done at WIW post in months, because I can't get a good picture 😦 He thought it was fun for the first few times, but I'm basically on my own now! I'm too lazy to go shopping for a tripod, so my WIW fast shall continue.Thanks for sharing this at last week's Drab to Fab party!This week's party is now live! Come on back and share more of what you have been working on! (Old or new) a great weekend! :)Amy @ Sugar and Spice
