Recent Purchases/ Reviews





I haven't been very good lately at showing what I'm wearing but I can at least show you what I've bought with a quick review. The first dress by Alice + Olivia is a bit more than I usually spend on one piece but I could not resist.  I hope it lives up to my expectations as it won't be here until Tuesday but I just love the way this dress looks. The color is perfect, I have green eyes so it's one of my favorite colors to wear and it's nice and short for my petite frame. So I guess I'll let you know more after I receive it.
The two Topshop dresses I ordered last Thursday and they arrived Wednesday. I actually ordered the midi dress in a 4 and the sundress in a 6 and would you believe the sundress was perfect, love it, but the midi dress which was a smaller size was just so big. Seriously, way too big, so that one is on it's way back. If that is something you are interested in, as it is a cute idea, I'd advise sizing 2 sizes down. The sundress fit perfect though. If I had to complain about something I would say the straps are a bit too long and they can't be adjusted. As you can see I like dresses, and living in Florida I tend to wear them quite often in the summer.
I love both of the two Zara items as well. The star dress is super cute and has this awesome cutout in the back. The heels are the perfect mint green color which i'm sure you know is the big color for Spring. They are very flattering despite the straps and me having short legs. Love them!

It's so interesting how these the last three dresses are SO reminiscent of the 90s! I can just see Jen from Dawson's Creek or DJ from Full House rocking these dresses!

They look so flowy! Please take pictures of the Zara dress! I would love to see it on! (I might have to do some thrifting!)
