i got: A Fun and Firty Summer Dress

Zara Dress Spring 2008

I actually bought this dress last year. I noticed it in the window display of Zara. I was immediately drawn to the print. The Oracle though it was a good find and so I rushed in and got a sale associate to find me the dress. I wanted it at any costs, even if she had to get in there and strip it off the mannequin. It’s only things I have from Zara that was full price. I love Zara during sale time.

When I got this picture back from Sangria Saturday fun this past weekend, I realized the power of the print on this dress. I haven’t had any pictures that displayed the print like this, so I never really noticed. I felt compelled to share it with you. It was very windy when this photo was taken, there is no New Look skirt action happening here. This dress can be a challenge in the wind, lol.

    1. Eni-David,
      I don’t have any prints like that. My wardrobe is sorely lacking in African prints except for this housedress that is from Zambia. Thanks for putting the bug in my head, that’s the next print search.

  1. The dress looks fantastic on you and I love your “Grace”-inspired hair (or lack thereof). You look smashing. Some people don’t have a clue.

  2. The dress looks wonderful on you and I love the “Grace”-inspired hair (or lack thereof). You look smashing. Some people don’t have a clue.

  3. Just came upon your blog. LOVE IT! by the way, I think that photo was taken in my condo, lol. Love the dress as well.
