the dress that almost wasn't.



I almost didn't buy--heck, I almost didn't leave the fitting room in this dress. My hips felt hippier and my knees felt more exposed than ever. But, my friend Stephanie coerced me out, and then worked with a sales associate to sway my vote.

"Wear it with a belt! Wear it on your honeymoon in Greece!", Stephanie exclaimed. Hmm...wear it in Greece, and a lot before than, I shall!

The strangest thing is this: Even though this dress screams Anthropologie to me, I found this cute little number at a sporting goods store. Of course this means there's absolutely no information about the designer online, however if you're in the midwest you might find this dress at your local Scheels. But, you know a good purchase is in the making when taxidermy deer overlooks you at the register. Also, today shirtless hippie told me it was "very pretty". 

So, wildlife experts and hippies agree: This dress is cute. Uh, yay?

P.S. In regards to the requests to visit my living room: Come anytime! Send me a fav snack list in advance, too. Truly! :) Well, just not this week. While my pal Stephanie is a very friendly gal, I'm sure she doesn't want to share the air mattress. So, hold off til next week. ;)

  6. I agree with the Hippie. Of course now that I think of it...I usually do. By the way, thank YOU for posting your photo and the link for the burlap/ruffle lamp. I've been keeping my eye out for a sweet lamp idea and just adore this one! Oh, and what a great hostess you are!

  10. oh it's so cute! at first I wasn't sure if that was actually you or a pic of a model wearing it! i also kind of steer away from gathered skirts because I think they make my hips look huge, but maybe it's just the close-up view you get from the dressing room mirror? other girls always look so good (including you) and I know my body is not too abnormal haha.
