  25. I am loving the low-cut back on that top! You're lucky you got that Dooney and Bourke bag from your mother. I am absolutely in love with vintage D&B purses. Can't believe some people on etsy or ebay overprice them to even $40 when I can find some for less ten at a thrift store.

  31. ohhhh snap. i love everything about this. for reals...
    firstly i love that the hat, bag and skirt were your mothers. What a stylish lady, i would give my right arm for a hat like that. The skirt hangs so beautifully on you, it looks like one of the ones from american apparel i've been drooling over. You look amazing. seriously.

  32. Your mom has killer taste in shoes! Just a wonder, do you know how to clean the leather of your cream Dooney? I have almost the same bag but not quite sure how to spruce it up. :)
