purple maxi

I can't believe I almost returned this dress. I went all summer and didn't wear it and I thought what's the point now?
Luckily Urban was only going to give me a $.97 store credit for it, which pretty much sealed the deal that I was keeping it.
Thanks Urban, and thanks Susan for my curls ;)
O, and thanks California for Indian summers that allow me to dress like this in October :)

wearing: urban outfitters dress, thrifted belt & necklace, ring c/o chicshop
worn to: PARADISO & MUA

  1. that is too funny - when can you ever go into urban and find anything on the sales rack for $.97?
    But I think it's quite pretty, and I think you can even layer it up nicely for the fall!

  3. Love the dress and the curls. The same thing has happened to me before where the return amount wasn't worth it. Hate when that happens!

  5. Once again I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your hair. And that's a great dress. I like what you did with the belt to make it look like a skirt and a top. And I'm so very jealous that you can go sleveless in October, because over here in NJ I'm freezing my butt off.
