Color + Details > Wrinkles

Sunny weather with a low wind factor usually means picking something more thin and delicate from my closet and today was the perfect day to try out my recent NM purchase :D

Dress: Gold Hawk. Okay, I bought this dress mainly cus it was on the cheap side ($75ish) but it actually ended up being WAY cuter than expected. First of all, I love the color. I'm really picky about the different shades of red, green, and yellow (I like my reds and green dark and my yellows bright) so not just any red hue will do. Second of all, the details on the collar of this dress are pretty eye-catching, I'll have to remember to put my hair up the next time I wear this out. The things I find annoying about this dress are: 1. since its 100% silk, it basically wrinkles the minute it touches your skin...I need to invest in a steam iron soon and 2. its a bit on the short for me...I know, I've become more of a prude :P

Tights: The usual Spanx

Shoes: BCBG

Okay, time for me to go to bed...way past my usual bedtime :(
