There's just something so fun about a light, floaty, springy (as in bouncy) dress in the summertime. Shabby Apple, one of my favorite secret sources for dresses, was kind enough to send me this "Pretty in Pink" dress, and it fits my personality so well, I think it ought to be renamed the Pretty Shiny Sparkly dress (don't you?). So fun, so flattering, and looks just as cute even without the belt! I'm 5'2" and normally a size 0-2 and the XXS fit me perfectly (the sizing runs big but the online shop helps you find your size with little to no effort).

This necklace hasn't yet debuted yet on PSS, but I've been wearing it nonstop. My wonderful sponsor Hazel & Harlow sent it to me (they're the best) because they knew of my affection for long pendant lockets. My favorite feature is the fabulous handcuff detail (which you may be able to make out in the above photo just a few inches above the heart!). I love the matte black chain, too - matte black chains are a feature in necklaces and other accessories I've been coveting lately (random, I know, but true!). So, essentially, this necklace has everything I ever wanted! :-)
All it takes is a little creativity and patience to come up with the perfect Chanel S/S '10 look (click for closeup) for less! I found some Urban Outfitters tights while shopping a few months back with the cute lace criss cross design, and of course you already know of my Jeffrey Campbell Charli's.

And here's a short clip of the shoot so you can see the dress in motion! Just for fun. :) Hope you like it!
