Ohh gosh first up I am being a bad blogger here. This post is going to all about this dress which is no longer available, ahhh!! I bought it months ago and hadn't had the chance to wear it, so although it felt new to me, it actually wasn't. Promise there will be as many similar alternatives as I can possibly find linked below. For me this dress was one of those pieces you have to order as soon as you see it, I know it's going to be worn summer after summer, and I am sure I will find a way to make it work for winter too!! Do you like the way I have added a little extra sumthin' sumthin' to this look by flashing my bra strap in an asymmetric way?? OH MY LORD THAT IS SO ANNOYING!! HOW did I not feel it there?? WHY is there in every picture??? If I had a clue how to use Photoshop (or even owned it) I would have magic-ed that away in an instant. 

Anyways, as much as this dress is just the perfect holiday item, I was wishing for a breeze when I was shooting the photos so I could get some schmaaaancy flowy photos. Alas, twas not meant to be, so I spent much of the evening trying to make my own breeze-effect by furiously spinning around. FAIL (see below). Not one turned out right... how do people take those perfect twirly photos, that's true dedication to the gram.
