Ruffled Hearts and Polka Dots

ruchedress
 
Okay, so I was originally going to wait until after my engagement pictures to debut this dress on my blog but I'm very impatient.  When I have something this cute in my closet I have no self control!  I'll be styling this dress much differently when our picture day comes (the 18th) so it was the perfect excuse I needed to show you first.

Dress- Ruche
Cardigan- Forever 21
Tights- Forever 21
Shoes- Old Navy
Necklace- Gift

The print of this Ruche dress was so unique and really spoke to me... If that makes any sense!  I realize I have actual attachments to some of my clothes (I touched on this subject last time).  It may be a bit irrational but much like a collector of cars, stamps, or coins, dresses are one of many things that make me happy :).  Believe me, if I could collect chihuahuas I definitely would!  What do you collect that makes you happy?

xoxo

  18. I used to have a collection of sand from various places and a stamp collection and I don't collect anything now, as I feel no need for it. You look beautiful in your new dress and I can see why you wouldn't want to wait to show it to us. Hehe.
