Style Post 4.3.11

Today's Style Post features an old classic from my wardrobe. How old, you ask? Well, I actually haven't worn this dress since I was 17. I know, I know...that totally violates the "If you haven't worn it in a year, donate it" rule. But every time I've cleaned out my closet, I've never been able to part with this dress. Why? For one thing, this dress reminds me of the summer before my junior year in high school, which was AWESOME. And another thing...I think this dress is just too pretty to give away. :)
It's been so long since I've worn this dress that I'm surprised I could still fit into it. It's funny though, I actually like how it looks on my size 6 body of today more than on my size 0/2 body of five years ago. Yay for curves!
I also love how the length of this dress makes my legs look longer than they actually are. (At 5'2", I need all the height I can get!) I have a confession to make: I first wore this dress when I was 16...paired with the ugliest black rubber platform flip flops you have ever seen...on a first date - gasp! I'm so glad I wasn't style blogging then. Haha.
Don't you just love the huge flower in my hair? Yeah, it's really big and impractical if it's a little breezy, but I love it anyway. It totally screams, "Hello Spring!"
I'm wearing green eyeshadow again. I think it's such a lovely alternative to my usual smokey eye makeup done in browns or grays.

dress: Blu Heaven
hair flower: Icing by Claire's
shoes: some random store at the mall
