February 13, 2011


Broach: Estate Sale
Tights & OTK socks: Target
Boots: Saver's

All that busyness that I mentioned last week doesn't seem to be subsiding. Arkansas got a pretty monumental snow day last week, and with that I was able to sneak in a couple much needed lazy days. We got to miss two and half days of school, and it honestly couldn't have come at a better time! I was/still am so exhausted.

Corey and I took advantage of the off days and headed out in the snow for some pictures. I've been excited to wear this dress from Wholesale-dress.net ever since I got it a few weeks ago, and contrary to all the expensive labels that I've mentioned on the blog here lately, this dress (with shipping from Japan) only put me back $22.

You look beautiful, my lovely! I probably need to get that dress now...
I can't believe y'all are getting so much snow, and we never got an inch of it!

All the snow is so crazy! There's a strip in front of my apartment that never gets any sun and there is still powdery snow there still!! You look great though! I've just been wearing overalls all the time, grouchy because of the cold.

Such a cheerful dress and what a bargain :) Love the brooch you're wearing on the collar!

Good to hear you got to have a much deserved switch off for a little while :)

Liz said...

You look fantastic! And braver than I would be, to head out in all that snow for photos, sans coat. Lovely look, though!

I love your dress, and these shots are beautiful! It can be so cold taking photos in the winter without a coat!

I know Wholesale Dresses, heard both good and bad things about it. But this dress, oh my, this dress looks absolutely stunning! I love the way you matched it with the brooch!

I heard about Wholesale-Dresses, but I got mixed reviews from my friends who ordered from there. Judging from this, you had a pretty good experience, so I might just take that dive and order something. I love the polka-dots on you! That collar and brooch definitely added a lot of character to your outfit.

And gosh, so much snow! I don't know how you deal with it! I always tend to trip and slip in front of massive crowds whenever there's snow...
