We are having cold weather and rain - how wonderful! But it's all ok now that my boyfriend's home for the summer! We went out today and took rainy prom pictures (I wish we still had prom...but alas we're too old now!).
This dress is amazing. I have to thank my friend B., because she bought it to cut up and use for decorations at our friend's bridal shower. Luckily, she only cut out some of the tulle from underneath and then I got to take it home! I bet she never thought that I would actually do something with it...
I had wanted to style this dress very casually, but when I threw my denim shirt over it, my boyfriend objected, saying that I'd been wearing it too much (haha). So then I threw on this cardigan that my mom gave me years ago (I think she got it for free when she bought some of her Chanel No. 5) and the look went from a mixture of casual and dressy to more of a dressed up look. However, I kept my canvas tennis shoes with the outfit to add a little playfulness (I seriously cannot get over them).
Since this dress is very mermaid-esque, what with the frilly frills at the bottom, I thought that this beaded shell purse would go perfectly!
