The perfect dress

Photos, Elyse Katz

When I die, I want to be buried in this dress.

I know that I often use this blog as an excuse to write love letters to my favorite articles of clothing, but this...this is my absolute favorite thing I own at the moment and I don't think I necessarily need to explain why.

I should confess something: I check Modcloth every day. I'm not exaggerating. I look through the new arrivals every. single. day. It's a bit pathetic, especially considering how little I actually purchase anything. However, when this dress was marked down to $24 (from at least $80 or $90, I don't remember), I couldn't resist. I didn't notice that my belt wasn't lined up when these photos were being taken, but I think the beauty of the dress still gets across.

I wore this last week to the Cheesecake Factory for a birthday dinner with my parents and my boyfriend. I ended up slipping on sandals at the last minute and I think it worked out much better than the oxfords. Just imagine I'm all Modcloth-ed out and wearing these. Fun fact about me: my biggest weakness is red velvet cheesecake. The things I would do for that cake...

Also, if anyone is interested, I have a ridiculous amount of clothes in my room that I need to get rid of. I have a bunch of stuff on Ebay, and I'll be adding more throughout the day. I also have this amazing 1950's dress on Etsy to get rid of too. Take a look if you're interested!
