One thing that is great about getting married (besides getting a fabulous husband) is you get to double your friends! You have your friends, then you get all of your husband's friends, too. Our reader submission today is actually my husband's best friend's wife. Sara, from Tell, Love, and Chocolate is one of those women you wish could be your best friend, she's stunningly beautiful, super talented, and probably the nicest person I've ever met. Here's Sara! (ps- you have to go see her most recent post on no-heat curls. absolutely genius.)
Hello duplex, my name is Sara, nice to meet you all! Well awhile ago I went on a very long trip with my husband...and while we traveled I bought a few things...bowls from Turkey, a bag from Vietnam, chocolate from Sweden (or chocolate from everywhere else we went, it didn't matter to me) and many other things. Among these trinkets and souvenirs I accumulated this dress. I bought it in Bali for only $5, put a belt around it, and it soon became my favorite thing to wear. I trekked through the rest of Asia with this little number.
NOW I am back in the states. And since I am not hugging baby elephants, is this dress still cute? I was actually really excited to wear it when I got home, but for some reason it has yet to leave my closet.
(here is a close up, so you can really see the pattern)
So I need some opinions...should I keep the dress around for costume purposes only, or should it make its first appearance here in the states?
