Thursday Moda Link Up & Casual Girly Style




Hi! I'm stepping out my dears. I mean, what is this? Ballerina just left practice? Grunge with a touch of fem?  Would I be featured on "What Not To Wear" (if it was still on - boy I miss that show!!)? Regardless of its' style, wearing it put a smile on my face and made me feel playful (which my 8 year olds always love). So someone join me in the fun!  




 I saw this layering dress on a Facebook group I follow, Corrie Lee Anns Boutique, and before I knew it I was requesting one in the color grey (she also has Navy, Cranberry, Blush-Nude, White and Black). I rarely make impractical purchases, but flashes of twirling princesses and flying unicorns flew through my mind and I clicked order. Have you ever dreamed of being a ballerina when you were a child? I must have. So childhood fantasies combined with the sweet flat price of $20 did me in! (Don't ask me why those three words just took me back to the scene in My Fair Lady when she first enters "society" at the race track.)

When the dress arrived I fell in love with...the packaging!! Yes! I get just as excited about her packaging and surprises inside, as I do about my purchases!

My last order contained a coaster that said "morning vibes" on it. This time I found a hair scrunchi attached to a card that reads "messy bun and getting stuff done". How cute!! I love these personal touches that small businesses are able to add. 
Enough about my emotions revolving around this dress and how it was delivered. Allow me to take a moment to tell you that it's "one size", positively comfortable and will make your dreams come true. ;)  Okay, maybe not quite, but you will be comfortable while you work your booty off towards reaching those dreams.  In the meantime, I look forward to dressing this up very soon (I must get as many wears as possible)! 

Do you own a layering dress? I'd love any styling tips!!
