Wasteland Companion

I had a dress for sale that Ashley wanted and we decided to swap dresses for good. I'd send her the one she wanted and she could send me a surprise dress. And well, this darling number was it! It's definitely not a dress that I would pick out for myself, but it's stunning. I've never worn a neutral colored dress before & I kind of love it.

We took these photos as the sun was setting and I love the way they look and feel. Perfect for a dreamy dress like this. Despite the extreme wind, I managed to look somewhat decent.

See how Ashley wore this dress last year: be my valentine.






Outfit Details:
Dress: Dahlia from Ashley as a surprise trade
Shoes: belong to my sister
Belt: Forever 21
Sunglasses: Charlotte Reusse
Watch: Marc Jacobs (gift from my boyfriend)
Ring: Swapped
Hat: Forever 21 (LA)

  14. Such a cute dress - I love the back! Aren't surprises the best? It can be quite fun when someone picks something out for you that you wouldn't necessarily choose for yourself - especially if you end up loving it!
