. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Dear Lauren,

July 10, 2012

Dear Lauren,

dress: shabby apple   belt: discovery  bracelets: target

Thank you for helping me pick out this dress from the gift card I won for Shabby Apple. 
I love that this dress feels like a cotton robe, which is extremely comfortable.  I don't like that this dress clings to every ounce of me and due to the wrap dress and high slit, I feel like I could have a wardrobe malfunction easily.   

Thank you for your fashion advice even from far away.  

I do wonder where your styling help was when I was little.  I found this picture of me the other day and am really wondering what is going on with my bangs that take up half my head.  


But I do have to say I would probably still wear this dress if I had it and if it fit me. 


The other day when I was playing scrabble I could almost spell your least favorite word: factoid.
I took a picture just for you. 



Not that I really need the reminder, but your recent health scare gave me a good reminder of how much I love you and need you as my best friend. 
You are one of the greatest blessings in my life Lauren Kay!
I love you!

Love, 



Pin It!

I think you look adorable with your bangs! And I'm thinking you didn't have a say on them ;)

The dress looks great on you, but I can understand how you might feel a bit leary in it. I feel that way in any kind of wrap dress! Such a sweet post!!

LOVE the dress! I have a few wrap dresses, and I love the way they look but the Oklahoma wind disagrees.
