I know only one exclamation point in my title is necessary, but three describes my mood much more accurately.



H&M Red Rosette Dress from the Garden Collection

Happy Face

What luck! I still can't believe I managed to track one down.The dress is even more beautiful in person. This picture really doesn't do it justice. The only downside is that it needs to be taken in a bit at the bust, and I have no idea how much an alteration will cost. I bought this dress from a girl in Orange County, and it unfortunately isn't the right size. I sort of knew that before I bought it from her, but the dress is so dreamy I just had to have it! Even if it just sat in my closet and I never wore it, that would be fine by me. Some clothes are just art, and this is a stunning example. I do plan on altering it though because I definitely want to wear it. I need some advice too:
What shoes should I wear? I am thinking nude pumps would be great. And minimal accessories so that the dress itself is the focal point. Any other ideas girls?
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!

  3. Awww I saw this dress in a magazine, and if I remeber well, it's supposed to be amde of recycled paper. It's so beautiful! I agree with what you said, nude pumps would look great and minimal accessories is absolutely the way to go!

  14. Ugh I know! I got a card from Sephora in the mail for 15% off for being a VIB Beauty Insider! I want to use that 15% off because my Sephora is carrying YSL now (Yay!) but that 30% off Urban Decay is really tempting! What to do!?! :D
