Two-Toned

I've had this dress in my closet for ages. My mom bought it for me during my "i'm too cool to wear what my mom picked out" phase, so while i appreciated the sentiment, i did not appreciate the dress. I do now. Thanks Mom!
A few things causing excitement in my life this weekend: The Manfriend is returning to town this weekend, learning yoga, movies w/ my favorite girls and boy.
And we mourn the loss of musical icon and legend Michael Jackson.He changed the world of music in ways that remain unrivaled and his music defined a generation. RIP MJ!








Dress- thrifted, shoes- hypnotic, belt(worn backwards)-thrifted

isn't it weird how moms just know these things? my mom would always pick out things for me to try on and i would roll my eyes and say no i don't like that and she'd say "oh just try it on for me!" and i would, and i'd like it, and i'd get angry! i even did that with my wedding dress. in fact, i was so FURIOUS that i liked it, that we left the store without it and started driving home. 20 minutes later i reluctantly told her to turn around and we went back and got it. of course, now i'm divorced, so, meh. hahahah!

this dress looks fabulous on you!

My mum would never buy something like that for me. Your mum has really a good taste!
In this dress you look like a power woman from the 80's just much more feminine and modern. I love this look!

I looove your blog and that dress... yeah, I went through that phase where clothes my mother bought for me were embarrassing.

I also admire how your hair always looks! My hair is natural too and I am very clueless as to what to do with it!
