Love Story


Is it a coincidence that I've posted two dog printed items in a row?  Absolutely not.  This dress was a gift from my brother and his fiance (oh my gosh, I've been wanting to announce that for SO LONG) for Christmas.  I actually screamed when I opened the box.  I've been eying this dress on Modcloth for months so I was pretty excited to finally hang it in my closet.  It's a dream and it fits perfectly.  Probably my favorite gift this year!






Dress- Modcloth
Tights- New York & Co.
Shoes- UrbanOG
Cardigan- Sidecca
Belt- Forever 21
Bag- Vintage

Let me also introduce you to my new favorite heels.  UrbanOG has always been a favorite site of mine for shoes, so it's no surprise I found these sky high beauties irresistible.  I seriously think these things make me seven inches taller!  I will probably wear them on the regular now, let's just hope I don't take a tumble from that high up :)

Okay, so onto my brother's engagement.  While he may only be twenty two, he and Alayna have been together for over five years.  She is the sweetest person alive and I was so excited when I found out he was going to propose on their European vacation.  I had the honor of helping my brother pick her ring (it's huuuuge!) and I was waiting for a text between Christmas and New Years for the announcement.  I finally got word that he had done it on the streets of Paris.  I couldn't imagine anything more romantic!  So congratulations Mikey and Alayna, you two are very lucky to have each other <3




  1. Ashley, je vous souhaite une bonne année et d'heureux évènements; jolie robe...mais attention vous allez vous faire dévorer :-)

  2. That is truly romantic and very sweet that you got to help your brother pick the ring out. Very best wishes to the both of them!

  12. YAy for engagements! I got engaged when I was 21, so 22 doesn't seem young for me (What seems crazy is that I'm 25 now.....where did time go?) Anyhow - I LOVE THIS DRESS. You know, because I own it?! Haha - it's awesome on you and I love the heels you wore it with. What an awesome brother for getting this for you as a gift - so cool

  13. red hot! dress looks nice with your red hair!

    i've never shopped at urbanOG...but i'm loving your shoes!


  14. I love the blue belt with your super cute dress! I got a lot of Modcloth things for Christmas, too, and it was so fun to finally see the pieces I'd been coveting in person. :) Those heels are awesome but look deadly to me - I can barely walk in a kitten heel, so I can't believe you can twirl around in heels that high, haha!
