I'll Be Seeing You

This is one of my favorite dresses ever. I feel like I should be meeting my boy at the corner diner in this, waiting to share a milkshake sweetly while we sit on our vinyl seats and he plays with the ribbon in my hair. Then this song would come on the jukebox and he'd shyly take my hand as he rudely drinks the last of the chocolate milkshake. I forgive him, though.

I just sighed, and I'm not sure if it's from the dreaminess of it all or if it's because it's Wednesday. Either way, I'm off to make a cup of coffee I can drown in, until tomorrow my sweets!

Dress- thrifted (best gem EVER)
Purse- thrifted
tights- Target
Booties- Topshop

PS. new writing is up on my Tumblr- go support my writing dreams and such :)

  3. This dress is gorgeous and I love the daydream that goes along with it. I checked out your tumblr last night too and love it! If you ever just want to quit your job and go on an adventure... we can write and photograph somewhere in Europe or something... im down! I totally want to start a writing blog now too since usually i just use facebook statuses to force my humor on people :)

  7. I am in LOVE with this dress. The length, the flowiness, pleats--gah. You are right- best gem EVER.
    Also, props to your for the forgiveness factor. I'm not sure I'd be so willing. Ice cream is kind of my soul mate.
