Playful stripes

Hey everyone. How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? I spotted this dress via Nordstrom a couple of weeks ago and it was on sale, the price is something like $31 versus the original of $75. It might be just another stripe shirt dress but it has a playful twist, a tied sleeve overlay details the waist. The back has draped panels revealing a peek of a cutout details. I wish that we have not forgotten to take pictures of the backside so you will have an idea what I am talking about. For the price and for how cute and summer appropriate it is, I just cannot say no. The size small runs out before I checkout so I settle for the medium. It needs an alteration on the arm holes but not biggie enough to stop me from wearing it. Thank goodness that this dress runs small so I was able to wear it right away. 
I hope you have a wonderful day.
thank you from the heart.
xoxo
Sam

  26. That is such a coooool dress! I've never seen anything like it:) Anyway, if you would like to know about photographing... I would get a remote control! It took me awhile and research to find one that would worked with my camera. But after you finally get one, it is sooo easy to take pictures! Anyway, you could also use a timer but it is harder to get good pictures. Let me know how it works!:) Good luck!!
