A dress review, an imperfect bow, and humidity

Dress: c/o Stop Staring; Scarf (worn as belt): Thrifted; Shoes: Last Chance

I was sent this Ashley dress by rockabilly clothing store Stop Staring! (yes, that is the name of the company, exclamation point and all)- and boy do I love it. At first I was a little wary, because the dress had darts, and my flat chest usually doesn't work well with darts. But it fit me like a glove! I love how perfectly it hugs my nonexistent curves and actually makes me look like something resembling a woman, rather than a 12-year-old boy. It originally came with a cute little gray belt, but I replaced it with this green scarf to add some color. (Forgive me for my imperfect bow... I've never quite figured out the art of bow tying.) 

Also, please let me just say I really did do something with my hair today, but the humidity killed it. Ohh, humidity. Such a new and interesting concept...

  41. I THINK THESE MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE PHOTOS EVER.  You look fantastic, the lighting is fantastic, the composition is fantastic.  Both you and Matt deserve back pats for this one. And as someone who often feels like her body is the same as a 12-year-old boy's, DA-AMN I WANT THAT DRESS.
