Secret Garden

 photo 87b3e7c6-b509-48ab-8227-891474aeb76b_zpse601aa1f.jpg I won this dress by Dear Creatures from a contest Miss Indie was holding awhile ago, and I'm finally getting around to wearing it. I wasn't crazy about how it fit in the shoulders, but the asymmetrical stripes and peter pan collar make up for it.

I also won these shoes from a giveaway with PlasticLand. The perks of blogging and entering giveaways! Weirdly I've won about 10 giveaways now, but I haven't recieved all the gifts. I think people forget and I feel just terrible reminding them especially if I've gotten other things in the giveaway. Does this happen to anyone else?

There's this magical looking road behind my house that leads into a mini foresty area. It's incredibly peaceful (other than random cat fights at times). It reminds me of being a kid and playing Secret Garden, which entailed acting out the book in any vaugely green/garden like area. My parents loved that phase in my childhood, I'm sure.
