Could it be? Three weeks in a row abiding by my New Years Style Resolution to re-wear thrifted finds from the past? I adore this dress, but truth be told, haven’t worn it nearly as much I should. I found it in the basement of a little vintage shop a couple of years ago, and I think this might only be the second time I’ve worn it (first time here).

Looking at these photos after I took them was a good reminder that I really shouldn’t take photos in the middle of the day. Especially not when I’m wearing white, and especially not when I’m surrounded by white. I had the shutter speed at 4000 and ISO at it’s lowest setting, and still..the dress is totally blown out. I only have myself to blame, I could’ve changed my f-stop, but I was shooting on the 85 and really wanted to see that depth of field. The background is blurry..but it wasn’t worth sacrificing the beautiful detail of this dress. Oh well, you live, you learn, right?

Memory, a Boston terrier, used to be afraid of cats. Then Memory became a surrogate mom to a klatch of orphaned kittens whom she reportedly began to nurse, despite not having been pregnant. According to the description on a YouTube video of Memory feeding the kittens, the little ones were found outside, cold and wet, when they were about a week old. The kittens are still alive and well, how amazing is that? Check out the full story here!

_1520210Are you guys sick of hearing about #PicheDoesAsia yet? Fortunately (or unfortunately) this is the last of outfit photos from the trip. I can’t believe I’ve been home over 2 months – the travel bug in me is itching to go somewhere new. In true Miche form, I am (of course) already plotting ways to make my next dream trip happen..more details to come :)

Posting this last is pretty fitting as the photos were taken on one of the last days of our trip in Battambang, Cambodia. We took a second tour with Butterfly Tours – by far the best travel agency we worked with on our trip. Our guide, Borith, was wonderful. He took us around, showed us some of the most beautiful views of Battambang, and educated us on the history of this incredible country.

A San Francisco man is one race away from completing seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. Tim Durbin is the only American competing in the World Marathon Challenge that started last Saturday and ends in Sydney on Friday. So far, the 31-year-old has run six marathons, each 26.2 miles, through snow, rain and jetlag in Antarctica, Chile, Miami, Madrid, Morocco and Dubai. And I can barely force myself to train for a half. Check out the full story here!

UntitledAndrea of Little Did You Know challenged us to recreate a Pinterest outfit for thrift style Thursday this week. After scrolling through my hundreds of pins, I decided to recreate a grunge inspired look from one of my favorite (and let’s face it, WAY cooler), bloggers – Le Happy.

A big part of why I chose this outfit was the denim vest – in keeping with my ‘New Years Style Resolution’ I incorporated this thrifted vest I refashioned back in July of 2013!

Just days before Sunday’s AFC Championship, Cathy Nichols, a 59-year-old special education teacher from  Maine was diagnosed with terminal cancer, leading her to believe she was unlikely to see her favorite team, the Patriots, play again. Two of Nichols’ coworkers had a trick play of their own. The pair contacted the station on Friday in search of tickets to a playoff game for their friend, and the station forwarded Nichols’ story to the Patriots. Nichols didn’t just wind up with tickets to the game: Patriots owner Robert Kraft gave her two seats in his family’s box and also provided field passes. How awesome is that? Check out the full story here!
