Purple Dress & A Friend


This is the first time that my friend Brittany has ever joined in on outfit photos. She lives just a couple doors down (she's Corey's roommate), and she says that she pretty much lives in jeans and t-shirts. Best part is, she's totally willing to let me dress her up and both her and Corey want me to help them pick out a whole new wardrobe at Saver's. To my mom, that kind of shopping would be dreadful, but to me, that sounds like a day at an amusement park! Yesterday Brittany, Corey, and I all got dressed up in semi-coordinated outfits and went out for pictures. I can't wait to show them to you guys!

Dress: Modcloth Going to San Francisco Dress in Petals via Selective Potential, Delightful Dozen/Flower Crown: Handmade/Ring: F21/Knee Highs: Saver's/Shoes: Goodwill

I was really excited when Tieka offered this dress up to the Delightful Dozen. I never noticed it before, but I have very little purple in my closet! The only other purple dress I have is a 50's day dress that I've had for a few years but have yet to show you. It's one of those dresses that looks really pathetic on the hanger but really great when I actually put it on, I just rarely ever get that far. I'll have to make a special effort to wear it in the coming days (or weeks)!

Such a great dress and I love it paired with the cable knit sweater. I've been trying to inject some more purple in my wardrobe, I don't think I really have any at all!
