Skippy Says: Diamond In The Rough (OOTD)

You guys want to know something exciting? These photos were taken on the block that we'll be moving to...someday...when the remodeling and construction on the house we bought is finally done. You know, after it finally starts. In fact, you see that sort of dilapidated looking blue house at the end of the row of beautiful houses? That's my ugly duckling, so quit badmouthing it. And while I'm waiting with baited breath for everything to finish start, I'll continue trespassing on other people's beautiful houses for my outfit shots. Because that's how I roll.

p.s.- You only have a few days left to enter my giveaway here!

p.p.s- Don't forget, you still have a few days to get $20 off your purchase at eShakti by using the promo code SAYSSKIPPY0811, valid till 31st December, 2011. Considering there is stuff on their site for as cheap as $20, I'd hurry my little tush on over :)

  2. I love the way these houses look. It makes me want to watch Full House! I can't wait to hear more about your new place! I bet it's going to be awesome. And your tights are the most wonderful shade of yellow.

  4. I can't really see your house here, but I imagine it's beautiful. Your very own "Painted lady." And I *know* these houses have some incredible bones! My husband and I are under contract for a sweet little gingerbread house in the city (shh! I'm not saying anything yet on my blog). It's also a fixer upper. Today I'm meeting with our realtor, the renovation loan specialist, the contractor, the radon guy and the pest guy. Eeek.
