Lake Side Dress

I am probably the worst shopper. Believe me, you do not want to take me shopping. I make fashion and perfume decisions like they are all life decisions. I obsess over little details, and go back and forth over my choices until the shop needs to close. Maybe not literally, but yes it takes that long. Have you ever spent so much money on something then when you get home you wonder how you even chose that item in the first place? For such reasons I take my time.

I made my sister and cousin take me dress hunting for my graduation dress. To be honest, it took a week searching every day and trying almost everything in different shops. Worst part is that the whole time I had no idea what I wanted but I knew I would know it once I saw it. Not too short, not too long. Not too tight not too loose. Well… that was my thought process at the time.

 Long story short I found this keeper. Legs for days though.
