Forever 21* Cardigan, Swapped* Dress, Steve Madden* Flats

Let’s keep the swap talk going, shall we? :)  I thought it would be appropriate to follow up my last post with an outfit post showing off an item that I swapped!  During the ModSwap event last September, I snagged this pretty dress from Julie of Orchid Grey.  I remember seeing the dress on the rack and thinking, “Oh my gosh, I love this dress!  I hope this fits!  Please fit, please fit!”  I snatched up the dress immediately and raced into the bathroom to try it on, and lo and behold- it fit!

I think I feel best in a dress like this with a girly silhouette.  With the lovely color combination of gray, pink, and purple and the pleated details on this dress, I just couldn’t help but feel pretty! :)

Since I’m apparently on a girly kick, check back later in the week for a very girly manicure! :)

Tell me: What’s your go-to silhouette or outfit when you want to feel your best?

    Oh boy, I would have snatched that dress right up, too, if I’d seen it. I really like the color combinations. It’s very girly. Kind of makes me think of a cupcake or candy.

    *I didn’t know you were in California until I read the subtext. Thought it must have been super warm up in New York!
