Wishing For…

While everyone in the northeast is concerned with the snow, I’m more concerned about the fact that I’m sick with a cold yet again. I feel like I barely got over my last cold, yet here I am again with the coughing, achy back, and whiny-ness. And you know the worst part? When I’m sick, my stomach transforms into a bottomless pit. Seriously. I can’t.stop.eating. Most people lose a little weight when they’re sick- I get a gut. Not fair!

So while I’m on the couch, waiting for Domino’s delivery (and effing starving), I’ve found a dress and purse that I am mildly obsessed with.

Well, isn’t this dress from Bonadrag just perfect? I know I just got a long black skirt from the last Swapaholics clothing swap and I already own a short-sleeved black dress. But really… it’s perfect. The cutouts would show the sides of my stomach (while still hiding the belly remaining from being sick all the goddamn time) and I could imagine wearing this everywhere. Everywhere!

A few days ago I saw a buttery, pale yellow purse at TJ Maxx. I immediately thought “that’d be nice if it was small, structured, and neon yellow.” Kate Spade, get out of my head! It’s very pricey for what it is ($295), but I could imagine wearing it for years to come.

Alright, I’m off to scour the web while anxiously waiting for my dinner. So…very…hungry…

    Well, I don’t have a cough, so I take no blame for the cold. Hope you feel better soon! Maybe getting that dress would help? It would look totally hot on you.

    Mmmm, Dominos! I love them best because I can order online. Hahaha

    That dress is fantastic. It sort of reminds me of the to-die-for dress my sister once wore to homecoming or prom. Everyone’s jaws dropped in unison when she walked into the room. As a matter of fact, I think I still have it. Hmm… ;)

    I hope you feel better.
    Loving that yellow bag. I like a yellow bag in general would be the perfect pop of color for Spring.

    Love that yellow bag! I really feel like having it would be like carrying around my own personal sunshine…which I think I could use with all of this snow :/ Go get it!

    xo, Ashley

    I hope you feel better!

    And I also hope to have that dress in my closet sometime soon. It’s amazing!

    Oh I hope you feel better. This post is resonating with me b/c last night I was reading glamour (finally caught up on some magazine reading) and saw a yellow structured bag and loved it. Love the new bright and bold colors for the Spring and the neons. Also, I might have to add a nice structured bag to my collection.

    Oh pooey! Being sick is never fun. Hope you feel much better today though.
    I love that dress from Bonadrag. I’ve been eyeing it for quite some time now. The cutout details definitely adds a certain oomph! And that Kate Spade bag is lovely but pricey. Could probably score something similar at a vintage shop for less.

    The dress is gorgeous! Sorry to hear you’re feeling sick. I feel constantly on th verge lately.
