Spring Dress Me Up!

the weather where i am is getting warmer and it’s nice to feel the sun on my face once again. although it rained like crazy today, the stores are filling up with beautiful spring colours and lovely spring dresses that make me want to take out my mastercard. except i’ve been banned from buying anything until after my birthday. apparently, i always buy everything i want and leave little for my friends to buy me for gifts. oh well, i’ll share with you the dresses i’m eyeing that i’ve seen online. as soon as i get a chance, i’ll also share with you the dress that i bought for my birthday and the second costume change. yes, i’m frivolous. but i gotta look fab for my birthday.

this pretty little purple number is for the daring with the low cut front and back. i tried this on in the store yesterday and fell in love. except i’ve been banned so i didn’t buy it. and the price tag is a little steep for a dress that can only be worn in one season. if you’re willing, you’ll feel glamourous in it. reminiscent of the marilyn monroe white dress but with a spring colour twist.

i really like the two tone dresses that have come out lately. and the dresses that look like a skirt and a top but are really one dress. this one is very casual and perfect for shopping out in the sun. with the illusion of a higher waistline, it’ll make your legs look longer for those out there that are petite like me and need the extra boost.

this one is perfect for the backyard bbq that your crush is going to be at. the colour draws eyes to you and the empire waist is flattering on most body types. with some braids in your hair (a la whitney from the city), you’ll be the cutest girl in the yard.

 if you’re lucky enough to be staying in an all inclusive resort somewhere this summer, this is the dress for you. it screams sipping cocktails poolside! but it’s versatile enough to take home after the vacation and have cocktails on patio with the girlfriends.

stay tuned for the birthday dress decision i made. *psst! i had a runner up outfit that didn’t quite make the cut but i will keep because it is just too cute. oh yeah! and my outfit #2 for clubbing with my friends.  🙂

    Hey miss, awesome blog. I have a question, so I’m thinking maybe I want over the knee boots and I remember you got yours from Steve Madden? What does shaft mean? Is that the part that covers your leg? -C

      you’re correct! that is the part of the boot that covers the leg. if you want more information on how the shaft is measured, here is a link that you can find lots of info about different boots and measurements you might find helpful: http://shoes.about.com/od/boots/p/boots.htm

      knowing the measurements will help if you want to buy boots online. cheers! 🙂
