I had a very intense weekend - I got one of my tattoos redone!
I wore this purple dress that I wore when I got my last tattoo:here (last outfit).
I've only had the dress since April 2011 (first worn here) and wore it only one other time here (when I got my crow tattoo). I paid $11.50 for it on consignment.
I got up early on Saturday morning, and was down at the tattoo shop by 9am. Leroy and I worked for just over 3 hours on redoing my salamander tattoo (go here to see my original tattoo). I'd realized since I first got it that I shouldn't have been so prescriptive in how it should look; I should have trusted Leroy to make it badass from the start.

It's been lovely and hot all weekend, so I knew I would need to cover up to keep out of the sun. Enter another "fresh" item in the capsule!

Today, I walked down to get groceries, and then head over to an ocean-front restaurant to sit on the sunny patio with my gals.
Hence the yellow strapless dress (last worn here, 2nd outfit).

I only took the poncho off to show off my tattoo, but this is what it looked like.

I popped into a couple of thrift shops while I waited for my bus this afternoon. I found this incredible cotton J. Peterman Company blouse for $8.00.

I also grabbed a couple of fabric belts and a new Matt & Nat bangle for $8.50.
