3rd Time's the Charm

This is not my outfit of the day. My outfit today was pretty boring. When I got home, this pretty dress was waiting for me, in the right size this time. Oh, what a difference the right size makes! I fell in love with this dress when I first saw it online. I was dying to try it on, and I did on my last trip to D.C. I tried on a size 6, and the fit was just off. I thought sizing up to a 8 would make it too big in the neckline, so I gave up on it. When it went on sale a couple of weeks ago, I implusively bought it in the size 8. I just wanted it to work so bad! As you know, I received a size 4 instead of a size 8, so this dress elluded me once again. Well, I called customer service last week to see if they could find a size 8 for me, and they did! I have to say, the third time's the charm with this dress. I love it, the husband loves it, and even my oldest son said these pictures looked really nice!

My husband took some of the pictures tonight with his new fancy cell phone. He researched phones for what seemed like a year and finally settled with this one. Boys and their toys! LOL! I don't know what kind it is. Phones just aren't my thing, but it does take pretty good pictures. The first 4 are from his phone. He did some cool effects like sephia and black and white.

I'm super excited for this weekend! I have an Anthropologie shopping trip planned with Dea from Dea Diaries and Erin from Designer Me. I can't wait to meet up with these girls! It should be a fun time! Hubby has already informed me that I'm not to buy anything, but I have some returns to make, so maybe I can sneak a little item for exchange in there. ;-) Have a good night!
