Wednesday

My first day at Dandelion Vintage + new hat!

Hi, there! Yesterday was my very first day working at Dandelion Vintage in downtown Champaign... it was so fun! First, my amazing co-worker Tracy and I helped finish a window display in the front of the store, and I got to dress my very own mannequin!
 It took me a while, though.. I wanted to get it just perfect! I had a different dress on it at first, but it left me stumped for accessories so I swapped it out for this pea green mod number in the middle of the display. See it? :)
Afterwards, I had a couple drinks with Tracy, my co-worker. It was so so much fun to hang out with a new friend! I love the random-ness of life right now!

hope your Wednesday is all you wanted it to be!
love, polly

I would love that more than anything. I've never been featured before!! You can use any photo from my blog that you'd like. I'm in las vegas for a work conference so I won't be posting again until the weekend. Thank you so much for your kind words and friendship.

i can't think of a more perfect job for you {other than being a wardrobe designer of course}. and that green dress is absolutely adorable! it must be so hard not to spend your entire paycheck there every week. :)
