Melissa Velia

fourpicturesblogsize2-3390562 As you all know I’m a huge fan of full length skirts, so as you can imagine, I can’t get enough of full length dresses. I received this gem from the lovely people at Melissa Velia. She is an up and coming designer who has some absolutely beautiful items. I love the color of this dress and specifically like that it’s long… and guess what? It has shoulder pads! Amazing-ness. It’s just one of those pieces that you don’t need to wear anything with because it speaks on its own… those are always the best buys.  invidualphotowithwritingblogsize-2979214 individualphoto2blogsize-4050416 shoedetailblogsize-7241471

This shot reminds me of the Wizard of Oz when the witch’s shoes are sticking out from under the building… yes, I know I have issues. My BF said I looked like Princess Leah with this hair-do… a compliment I think? I love the sleeves of this dress as well. I think I forgot to mention that above… seriously overall perfection. 

My beautiful new banner was sketched by the ever talented Lauren from My Closet in Sketches. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

One of my best friends from home came over tonight and we went out for dinner and chatted on my balcony. We’ve known each other since kindergarten. It was really nice to catch up and reminisce. It was such a beautiful night out to be chatting outside… finally good weather in NYC!
