Birdhouse in Your Soul
Here is my second dress from the Peaches in Pug collection. It may be last one, as much as I love the collection, there aren't too many pieces that I'm hardcore in love with. But we'll see, as they are great staple pieces! If anything I may snag some of eBay one day on sale and such. Speaking of, I got this on sale during Pinup Girl Clothing's Black Friday sale. Any other PUG fans out there that utilized their sales that week? Honestly, I was a little overwhelmed by the whole ordeal. Because they start at midnight PST on Friday every year, I'm already a little burned out, and literally spent, from other deals that started from the week before. And then they did things a little differently this year where they had a weekend sale were part of their store was on sale. I thought that was it, but then they had ANOTHER sale on Cyber Monday where their entire site was 35% off, which was more than the 30% off they originally had for Black Friday. As my style twin bestie said, it was annoying because so much was already picked over. So even if we had known that they were going to have a greater discount at a later date, that would have been hard to strategize anyway. There was also no warning that they were doing more sales, which is something PUG is usually excellent with. I was thrown off, but hey, I'm not really complaining. More "documenting" in case people are researching Black Friday sales so they can try to guesstimate what to expect next year...
But seriously....this dress is amazing. I'm SO glad I got it. If you remember I got the same style dress in green with pink trimming a few months back. When this dress arrived last week I was stunned to find the colors to be super vibrant and rich. It's not that the site does a disservice to the dress in the pictures they have of it, it's just that in person it's completely amazing in ways photos can't describe. I can't see this not becoming one of my more worn dresses in the future.
All I want to say for the positivity portion of this blog post is to be remember to be kind. I feel that this time of year so much gets lost in the shuffle of everyone's busy lives, and for whatever reason that's something that seems to be taken out on others or strangers. So remember to smile at strangers and ask polite questions when something doesn't go your way, as opposed to demanding questions. This world would be better if everyone was kind in general, but this time of year would be way easier if people follow this rule as well!!!
Any They Might Be Giants fans out there? It was somewhat impossible to NOT name this post after arguably their most famous hit, "Birdhouse in Your Soul." I'm even entirely sure what the hell that phrase even means (I researched it and came up with that it may or may not be about a night light...didn't see that coming...), but hey, it's a catchy song and I like it!
