I can't gush enough about this dress. I've been in love with this dress ever since I first spotted it, in multiple colors, at Urban ages ago. They must have started stocking it at least a couple of years ago, because I can't even remember how many times I've tried it on, only to pass it up due to the price. It's a simple piece, really, but for some reason I've just always been enamored the flattering shape and the simplicity of it. Imagine my delight when someone in the swap group I'm in agreed to send me this in exchange for a dress that's been sitting in my closet for forever. The funny thing is, the brand of the dress is Cooperative, and the same exact day this dress came in the mail, I nabbed these Cooperative sandals at a thrift store for a few bucks. Being dressed by Urban for close to nothing is a talent of mine, I guess.
I'm not sure how obvious it is, but I'm actually wearing lipstick in these photos. I usually despise having anything on my lips, but I've been wanting to step outside my comfort zone and try a red lip for a while. I borrowed this one from my mom, and I figured a photo shoot was the perfect time to see if I liked it. Turns out, I really like how it looks. I may become a full-on lipstick convert soon, watch out.
Is is just me, or do these sandals look kind of weird on? I really do like them, but I can't help but think they look strange on my feet now that I see them in pictures. Oh well. I'm a strong supporter of weird looking feet.
