top: flip flops. bottom: heels.
it should be said....i'm not an impulse buyer.
i like sales.
but one day, on a lovely saturday, us ladies were out shopping at maurice's after having lunch at panera's.
i tried on this dress, amongst other cute ones they had, and knew . . . right away . . . it was the one.
then i pondered for the next 10 minutes whether i wanted to splurge . . . or wait and risk not getting around to shopping again while they still had my size, on sale . . . eh.
so yeah. i bought it.
and borrowed my sister anna's bolero to go over it today. :) sisters are wonderful things. ;)
ah, i love maurice's dresses.
after browsing randomly the past few months for dresses on ruche, modcloth, and shabby apple, it was very satisfying to find a dress i adored and just get it. for a price that didn't burn the wallet. [ahem, shabby apple...]
other dresses [and swing-dance-worthy attire], including some that i got to try on at maurice's....

I love it when that happens - when you try something on and JUST KNOW. You look adorable, btw. I love the green.

That is a great dress. I've been on a mission to lose weight and one of the big reasons is so I can feel comfortable wearing some of the cute summer dresses I've been drooling over online :)
