I've found my perfect summer dress!
I would love to say that I found this dress after scouring countless stores in relentless pursuit of the perfect summer dress. In all honesty, however, finding this dress was much more of a right place, right time, right price, right dress situation.
This gorgeous dress is by Diane von Furstenberg. However, I did not find it in a fancy-shmancy department store (of course not!). No, I was at Marshall's, of all places, buying socks with my brother (oh, the glamour!).
I had been eyeing the dress since we walked in the store. The dress was on display by itself in the shoe section (a very odd place for it to be in Marshall's) and every time I walked by I could not help but stare at it. When my brother and I were finally in line to pay for his socks I started to think that I could not leave without at least trying it on. I walked over to the dress snatched it right off its display hanger and walked straight to the fitting rooms to try it on (ha ha, I was a total woman on a mission!).
I tried it on and, to my absolute joy and excitement, it fit perfectly.
What happened next was fairly typical. I bought the dress (of course). Brought it home, tried it on and did some obligatory twirls.
I'm sure I'll be wearing this dress all summer long!
This is my perfect summer dress, what's yours?
