Ya-Ya Dress

     I’m also calling this post WIWS (What I Wore Sunday).  I know I don’t usually do outfit posts, but I love this dress, and I was so excited to wear it…so I’m sharing it with you!
     If you’ve been reading for any length of time, you’ve probably heard me mention the Ya-Yas or The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.  It’s one of my very favorite books (for a multitude of reasons – which will probably get their own post after I reread in a few weeks), and this dress so reminded me of the book.  Something about the summery feel and the ‘60s sort-of style…and it’s hot pink!

Pink Dress

     FYI, this picture does not do it justice.  It is pinky pink and so soft.  I wore it with white patent leather slingback kitten heels (they have a little round toe with a white buckle) – love.  I would have shown you my face, but it looked something like this…

     The velcro rollers are a new “investment” (by investment I mean 10 whole dollars…with a gift card), and I am loving what they do for my hair (I’ll post about that too).  I seriously would have worn this dress all day long, but it didn’t make much sense.  Also, I have a hot pink purse (with a giant bow on it), so I looked a little gauche with all of that – in the best way of course.
     Don’t you love it?  I’ll post again sometime with my “tutorial” about my velcro rollers.  Until then, I hope your summer is still going wonderfully (and that you all find a sassy hot pink dress to wear).  Oh, and if you’re wondering, the dress came from Cato – not where I usually shop, but when it works, it works!
