The "L" Word

Dress-vintage c/o of Thifted, Bangle-vintage Monet, Ring-Forever 21, Shoes-Topshop
When I saw this dress over at one of my favorite and local eBay vintage stores Thifted one word came to mind, love. I knew in that moment I had to have it. Luckily, they sent it to me as a gift. It is just as perfect on as it was online. Perfect pretty flowers, a cute hemline and a open criss cross back that screams summer time. 

I shot this last week while I was home sick, I thought I would shower up and show off my new love. Trying to get cleaned up when you are sick can be a challenge. I was left with a burnt finger and shaving cream instead of shampoo in my hair, but this dress was worth the trouble.

I love the cut out back and the fabric reminds me of the 1950's- beautiful outfit.

Also, your 'LOVE' cushion is fabulous, where is it from?
