...not happy with Blogger right now, but don't let that stop you from reading this post! Your comments will make me feel much better! :)

ruffled-dress2The story with this dress is that I went to Ross looking for designer deals and shoes and whatnot and I happened upon this dress. Now, the first time I saw this dress I thought it looked cute and that the bottom was so creative, but I wasn't sure how much I liked it so I passed.

ruffled-dress3Then I went back to Ross about a week later and saw this damn dress again. And this was at a different Ross, by the way. So I thought that maybe it was fate and that this dress was meant to be in my shopping cart. After I tried it on and belted it, I realized that it was definitely going to be a good buy.

ruffled-dress4These BCBG shoes are also from Ross -- or TJ Maxx. Seriously I'm constantly getting these two places mixed up.

Almost all of the jewelry is gifted, except for the butterfly necklace that I bought on eBay for about $2. The belt came with a different piece, so the entire outfit is around $45 and that includes the shoes.

What do you think of my look?
