Funny story about my shopping habits and this dress. I went to Express in December with my sister, Megan, where we tried on tons of fun looks (they’ve been killin’ it lately, in my opinion!). Meg tried on this little black dress and I loved how it shaped her body and had thought the ruched sides were flattering. So, I of course tried it on and got it as well! I did always like twinning it with Meg :)

Anyway, at that time I was heading from Michigan to Mexico, and had loads to pack in my bags. I was away from Boston for six weeks, in varying cities, states, and temperature ranges, so I had a lot of clothing. Well, I had this one in the bag on my dresser in my parents’ house, and I totally forgot about it when packing. It wasn’t until the end of my stay in Mexico, when I wanted a dress for a cocktail party, that I realized I was missing it. Whoops! I was so preoccupied and had gotten other new items over the holiday break that I completely forgot about this beauty!

It wasn’t until my last trip back to Michigan, in mid-March, that I picked it up. It was happily waiting for my in the bag on my dresser, just as I had left it. I’m glad it’s still a little chilly, so I can wear it! I love the sleeveless version, too- perfect for summer nights!

Les tengo que confesar algo embarazoso sobre este vestido. Fui con mi hermana a Express en Diciembre para ir de compras. Ella quería un vestido, y la tienda estaba de rebajas así que porqué no? Pues probó este vestido y me encantó. La quedó muy bien y por eso lo probé yo, y lo compré. Ahora Meg y yo somos mellizas :)

Bueno, pues compré el vestido justo antes de hacer mis maletas para México (iba a volar allá desde Michigan). Tenía mucho ya que no iba a estar en Boston por casi dos meses, y iba a viajar a cuatro estados en México con climas distintos. Pues cuando hice mi maleta dejé el vestido en su bolsa en mi cómoda sin pensarlo. No fue hasta mi última semana en México que me di cuenta que lo había dejado- es que estaba tan preocupada!

Pues por fin, durante mi última visita a Michigan, podía utilizar el vestido otra vez. Y ahora, estoy contenta que hace un poco fresco todavía porque el vestido tiene mangas largas, así que lo puedo seguir utilizando. También me gusta la versión sin mangas, para usar durante el verano.

    Such a beautiful shade of blue and it looks great with the black dress.


  2. I feel like it’s a little late in the year for me to buy a new coat, but next fall I think I’ll put a baby blue one on my shopping list! Love this color on you.

      It’s so cold still here that I’m using
      Light coats still! Insane! But I definitely suggest baby blue next year!
