Honey, I'm hoooome!

I've been a terrible blogger this past week (or two). I could tell you that I've been incredibly busy with my freelance stuff, but the reality is, that's only half of the reason I've been absent. The other half of the reason I've been absent is because I have some big, exciting news to share...but I can't share it just yet. And I'm terrible at keeping secrets, so it's just been easier to limit my blog and Twitter usage. I promise, I'll tell you all about it soon. Just not yet.

(But just to avoid, Matt and I aren't engaged. For some reason, everyone hears "big news" and assumes engagement. Guess that'll happen when you've been together almost four years, haha.)

shirt: secondhand
skinnies: The Limited
boots: Old Navy

I've been wanting a shirt with some fun floral embellishments for a while now, when lo and behold, two days ago a package arrives on my doorstep. It was from the lovely Joanna of Fabulously Average, who recently cleaned out her closet and sent me some goodies. Thanks Joanna, I love these shirts!!

Joanna and Sydney (of Take Me For a Twirl) are both doing closet cleanouts, which reminds me that my closet is in desperate need of an overhaul as well. In fact, the trunk of my car currently has a giant bag of clothes that I keep forgetting to take to Goodwill...I should go through it first and see if anything would suit my bloggy friends! I don't think any of it is nice enough to warrant a giveaway, like Syd's (She's giving away a Cartier scarf this week. Oh my God.), but there's definitely some wearable stuff in there.

Want a little surprise package of goodies? Send me your address (verbal.melange{at}gmail{dot}com) and I'll see what I have for ya :)


  1. Yay, I'm happy you like the shirt! And it looks great on you btw:)

  2. Pretty top. And you present it nicely with matching colors.

    It's fun to share clothes. I've been doing it for some time now. It's a thrill to see what others might give you and it's nice to give gifts ourselves. The process adds significance to the items. I remember where every gifted item came from.

  3. The new shirt is really cute. I'll trade you some goodies! I've got a couple things in a 'goodwill box' in my room too. Some of them you would probably really like.

  4. Ooh, can't wait to hear about the news! (I know what you mean about the engagement thing--I had to make it super-clear to everybody at work and such that I am nooooot the getting-married type so that they wouldn't suspect and and Mike every time I turned around, hahaha.) I don't think I come around here enough to ask for any goodies, but I will say that you're rocking that top hardcore!
