The Perfect Dress

Have you ever found a dress and realized it was made for you?  Just you.  They put it in stores to pretend anyone could buy it but, really, it was intended solely for you.

On Friday, I found such a dress.  This item suits my style perfectly.  I was also amazed to see that its colors are my favorites -- pink and black. 

Fate made this dress for me.  Not only that, it was in a thrift-store, so the $24 price was a bargain.

Here it is.  I took my new orange lipstick out for another ride around the block.  That color is growing on me...

  6. Such a great buy! I am so glad that you picked it up! The dress fits you like a glove and the pink embroidery creates a great, curvy silhouette. But the hemline is my favorite - so unique and fun! And I love the accessories. Definitely a win in my book!

  11. Wowowow! That dress was made for you. It show cases your legs, defines your waist, and yes is in "Ally colors"! Great find. I love the orange lipstick too. It really goes well with your skin tone and works well for a fresh look.

    I definitely have the same feelings about my white sundress as you do for this dress. That amazing feeling is what makes shopping so splendid!

  12. Yes yes yes, it was definitely made for you! I can't believe you found it second hand too - what major score!!

    You truly look lovely, curvy, and happy!! The perfect dress should always make you feel all those things in my opinion! :)

    And I adore the orange lipstick!! It's truly great on you! I'm wearing almost the same color on my nails right now, and love it! Orange is where it's at this summer ;)

  18. Oo la la! Look how tiny your waist looks in that dress! Very pretty. I'm a big fan of the orange lipstick too.

    I have a made-just-for-me dress too. It has a berry, orange, and white tribal pattern, and it fits me just perfectly.

  19. What a fantastic dress! I love how the lines work on your body!

    I think I would have gone with a pink-tone lipstick with this, to go with the pink in the dress (not too matchy, though!). Oranges look better with warm tones.

  27. Oh yes, yes, yes! I love it when that happens to me. I have a couple of dresses in my closet that I just know were intended for me alone! I can tell your dress was made just for you too.
