Spring Cleaning + Silver Sequins

Oh man! I think I just gave myself a hernia. Is that possible? I thought only men could get them but I’m definitely feeling a pinching feeling in the lower abdomen region from lifting so much today. Maybe I’m just ovulating. Because it’s not actually that painful.

Our cleaning lady {Alba} came today and after three weeks without her {due to the holidays} the house definitely needed a deep down scrubbin’. I decided that since I was home today, now would be as good a time as any to clean out the shed that sits on our roof patio all warm and cozy and full of shit!

I only wish I had before photos to show you that when I opened the door all there was was stuff. No room to even step a foot into. And now . . .

My constant organizing and reorganizing and REORGANIZING that I have a love/hate relationship with in the end makes me feel complete. It’s like a puzzle. I heart puzzles. Yes, grandma puzzles …like 1500 pieces, yo. Yes, I am a nerd.

…and then I found this little gem that was my Grandma’s.

…and this is what needs to go to the garbage. sigh* more work.

And just so this is not a complete waste of a post for today, I give you my new Iisli sweater dress and Felix Rey sequin bow belt that I received last night from Gilt.com {invite to your right people – they have rad men’s sales too boys!}. Unfortunately you can’t really see how amazing this little dress is in the photos. It’s so much cuter in person and looks great without the belt as well.

…oh and, vintage clutches & Jessica Simpson shoes

And for the record, I am completely aware that I have the legs of a drag queen. So please, save your comments :) lol.

    You have incredibly awesome legs. Mine are beefy and not slender in any way (they used to be) and I can never fit them in boots, even though I myself am not that big of a person. So anyone with legs like yours makes me very wistful :)

    The organization must have been incredibly satisfying. I am in awe there too!

    Girl your legs are fab!! ahemm. You would look amazing in anything.

    I love anything black, I seriously have to shop on Gilt. and another inspiration, I have a vintage sequined scarf that I will now think about using that way, fabulous;)

    I also am a organizer reorganizer and am still at it. I hate accumulating to much stuff. It messes with my head.
