The Hound Sleuth

modclothdress2

Have you ever been obsessed with an item of clothing?  Well I certainly have, and it definitely was this Modcloth dress.  I had seen this dress months ago and quickly added it to my wishlist.  I was hoping to get it for Christmas but my size quickly run out of stock.  I was so upset!  Luckily, I got two of the same dresses and had some store credit.  So you know what I did?  I waited.  And waited.  And one day it was back in stock.  So I moved on it real quick and that's how I have this dress today.  It's pretty much everything I'd ever want in a dress.  Fit and flare, super cute dog print, modest but also form fitting.  Can you tell how much I love it?

This month is going to be a great one!  Between family and friends there are lots of birthdays in February.  Kevin's birthday is a few days after Valentine's Day so I'm really excited to have a little party for him.  I haven't really decided what to do for him so any suggestions are welcome!  I just want it to be special because it's his first birthday as my husband.  I'm really excited!

  1. Seriously the cutest dress ever! it's perfect on you! The dog print - love it. I end up buying a ton of the items that pop up when I search for 'dog' on their site! Haha. And yay for birthdays - you could do coupons! Jason loves those - he did some for me for V-Day with mix and match date nights.

  8. I'm totally emailing the link of this post to my boyfriend (he owns a dauschand). This is the cutest dress, oh my goodness!

    Also... in terms of gifts, I did a week of gifts for Amos on his last birthday. They were (mostly) small things that fit in envelopes and each envelope was labelled by the day of the week. I think I did stuf like coffee drink cards, love notes, small candies, and as the day of got closer they got to be bigger things. Thursday was a scavenger hunt that ended at a favorite restaurant for a night out and Friday, his birthday, was "instructions for a special night in" since he had to work the next day. We were supposed to do something kind of silly like a build a pillow fort and watch his favorite films etc.

    I'm not sure if our specific (and admittedly silly) prizes would work, but I think it could be adapted to anyone. You can read more about it here: http://www.withoutastyle.com/2012/05/mail-madness-post-birthday-surprises.html

  41. Look how cute you are here! You know, this is a pretty and more modern version of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, I think. Blue shoes can be cute instead of ruby red slippers. hehe.
