It's no secret that wacky prints are my thing. I saw the eye print on that gorgeous baby blue shift and I tapped the buy button faster than I generally do- which is saying a lot, since I usually have a three-day rule- the if I'm still thinking about it after 3 days then I should buy it rule. The swingy, retro, A-line cut of the dress, and the cutesy mock neck also sold me.
The best part about owning a statement maker shift like this is that when you get hit-on the conversations become quite creative. Take for instance the morning I wore this dress. I was crossing the street downtown and I hear (from the passing-by AT&T van, no less) "hey girl- you looking good, you are going to have all them eyes on your ass today" (in a sleazy cable man voice). If that didn't brighten up your day I don't know what will, because I for one, am still in awe of the cleverness in that one.
