Spring is finally in full swing and I couldn't be happier! I can do away with my cardigans and show off my favorite spring staple: sundresses! The Hamilton dress from Unique Vintage is an undisputed favorite and I'm sure you can see why. The sweet-as-candy stripes, adorable covered buttons, and figure-flattering silhouette will have you dancing with glee as soon as you put it on. I mean, doesn't everyone have that reaction to a pretty new dress?

The Hamilton is made from a light 100% cotton that is perfect for the warmer months ahead. It features adjustable tie straps, faux-buttons down the bodice, matching rope belt, a gathered swing skirt, exposed pocket on the right side, and a side zip closure. I'm constantly between an XS/S in UV brand clothing, but I took an XS in the Hamilton. The waist is a great fit, but the bust is a bit more constricting if you have a larger bust (unlike me). I would go with your regular size, unless you need to accommodate for your bust. If you're not a pink fan, this dress also comes in green. I'm crossing my fingers that there will be a rainbow of Hamilton dresses in the future!
For anyone wanting an update on Rosko: he's doing great! He's on several antibiotics that I have to administer multiple times a day, but it seems to be helping. Although his eyeball is still red, I can finally see his iris. He hates wearing his "cone of shame" 24 hours a day, but anything to keep him from rupturing his eye is worth it. It's quite apparent that he only has light sensitivity and no actual sight, but we're trying to keep him from another surgery. We will find out early next week whether the eye can be saved or not. My very wonderful and amazing friend/artist Stephanie Buscema has donated a HUGE gift bag filled with her artwork, accessories, and jewelry that hasn't been released yet! I'm auctioning off the goodies on my Instagram, and all the proceeds will go to Rosko's medical needs. To get more details/if you're interested in bidding, follow the link HERE.
