outfit of the day(bird): sisterhood of the traveling dress

dress~ c/o Fashionologie
clutch~ vintage, two birds
necklace~ Etsy, gift from jim
sandals~ Steve Madden

clearly, these photos were not taken in minnesota (the dang state is still covered in snow.) this is another outfit from our trip to mexico. i wore this dress to the rehearsal dinner for the wedding we were attending. the dinner didn't start until 7pm, it was outside, it was dark, and i was sitting almost the entire night. this made me sad because no one really got to see my dress and i really love this dress. megan and i found it at Fashionologie about a week before my trip and i knew immediately upon seeing it that i would be taking it to mexico. after both megan and i tried it on, we decided it was the sisterhood of the traveling dress. it fit us both perfectly (which is unusual for us with dresses, mainly because megan has the tiniest rib cage known to man and can fit into the teeniest dresses.) and, not only that, it actually gave me the illusion of curves! i dream of having the curves that my sisters were blessed with. in this dress, i felt almost as though i had inherited my mom's curvy genes rather than my dad's straight up and down body. i knew my flat butt and lack of hips were hidden under there, but at that moment i felt sexy and curvy. and that is all i ask for from a dress. that's not to much to ask, right?

  22. Voted for you! :)
    I love the colors of this dress, it's so bright and fun! Isn't it funny how sisters can have completely different body shapes? Me and my 2 sisters all have completely different body types and wear different sizes but once in a while there's an item that will fit us all.

  23. Speaking of outfit envy (from your previous post), this is making me so jealous of you! I love your dress, print, colors and all! :D
