Remember how I mentioned that I bought a gorgeous dress on my birthday, well here it is! The cut and color are what drew my attention; I love little shift dresses and I love black and white. It was an added bonus that the embroidered paisley fabric was so cool!
I bought the dress at an adorable little boutique around the corner from my apartment called Bobbles & Lace. When the store first opened this past winter, I thought for sure I wouldn't be able to afford a single item in there. Their window displays were always to-die-for and the styles so chic. I didn't want to tempt myself with looking at things I couldn't afford, so I put off going inside. Finally, I bit the bullet a month ago. Imagine my surprise, when the first amazing, must-own dress that I saw was under $70! I continued to look around the store in disbelief, picking up different items, all were under $100. Thus began my love affair with Bobbles & Lace!
Their website says it all:
Beauty does not have to come at such a high price."
After unwrapping my beautiful dress, I couldn't throw away the gorgeous cherry blossom print tissue paper protecting it. Instead, I turned it into a paper flower and stuck it on top of my monitor. Perfect!
