My dress

I went shopping today to try to find a dress. I hate to order one because as I found today I could wear three different sizes, depending on the style and who made it. I found one that was made just like the brown one in the earlier post, except it was green. It was Jones New York so it was a lot of money.
I found this one and wasn't sure about the ruffly stuff on it, but am learning to TRY IT ON. So many times I like things on me that I don't like on the hanger. This is one. It hits right above the knee. It is a jersey fabric that will not wrinkle. And, the ruffly things I wasn't sure about... they draw your eye up away from other areas. Plus, Plus!
I can wear it with flip flops and my wedge sandals. At home I can wear it with some heels, which I am not taking to California. It can be casual or I can dress it up with jewelry. I still need a cardigan. I didn't find that. The color is not as orange as the first photo. It is more like the second.

Oh I like it! It's so pretty and the fabric will be perfect for traveling. I do hope we will see a picture of you in it! I love red.

I love how you made your home work for you. We had to do the same to our dining room after my mom moved in with us.

Our dining room has a table and chairs, a hutch, a desk with a computer on it, and an upright piano in it!

I love french doors! I don't have any but I love 'em.

I love that dress! If you have a Target close by they have cute 3/4 cardigans in a variety of colors. I purchased a black and white b/c I can wear them with lots of different things! Have a fun trip!

I live in SC and our Target still had them this week. I usually shop in the "well developed" section as well, but found the cardigans in the "stick girl" section. They have sizes up to an XXL. BTW, I love the names you use for the sections. Made me LOL!

I like it too. I think it would be perfect for California. I like the color too!

Thank you everyone! I bought a white necklace, earrings, and bracelet plus a white cashmina type scarf. I can dress it up a little with those items.

My youngest-older brother did stuff like that when we were kids. Just annoying brother stuff. Fortunately he finally outgrew it!
