    Gorgeous, wonderful dress. If you sold it I would totally buy it. (Well, I’d wait until I was out of my shopping ban to buy it!) I’ve been reading your blog for a while, too! Very inspiring.

    The shape is lovely. A dress like this is a great basic piece to have. You could dress it up or down and wear it a million ways. I bet your daughter will enjoy it a lot!
