It's Friday!!!! :-D
 
I am been DYING over this dress since I first laid eyes on it many moons ago. I'm a sucker for anything with this gorgeous print from Rifle Paper Company. I want it on everything....I wouldn't even mind putting it on my walls! I originally wanted the other style this came in: midi length with spaghetti straps. However, I fell in love with the sleeves and although I don't normally where loose dresses  because it draws attention to my hips (funny, right?), I decided to go ahead and go for it! The price was not my friend, but I had my birthday coupon and thought...what a better birthday present to myself than his gorgeous dress that  I've been coveting for so long?
 
And let me tell you...this is my favorite Anthro purchase to date. When it arrived and I put it on, I just danced around.... and twirled. :-) I want to wear it everywhere. It makes me feel beautiful and free. Everything about this dress is breath taking: the colorful print, the gorgeous bell sleeves, the loose and flowy cut. I don't know how I lived without it before! Money well spent and I look forward to buying more from this line in the future.
 
As for this outfit, I paired it with a dainty long pendant necklace, thin bangles and the peach clutch my sweet husband bought for me on a whim. The dress reminds me of resort wear so I added a cognac colored heel with a hint of gold.

So glad you could join the link -up today and thank you to all who participated last week! In true Friday Favorites fashion, I have a blogger to spotlight today...
 
 
 
I adore this outfit! It's a seamless mix of both feminine and masculine styles. The pattern mixing is on par, the accessories are perfect and it's just a very cool look. Upon looking at her other blog posts, I see that she stays true to this feminine-masculine style resulting in well curated outfits with interesting elements that are beautiful to look at. Bravo!
 
 
 
 
 
Can I just give a shout out to Sandy a la Mode ? If you think this print looks familiar, it's because it is! As you saw from the link-up last week, I wore this adorable print in shirt version from my Lularoe boutique.  I adore this Julia dress version!
