Happy 4th of July!

HAPPY 4th of JULY!
(i really don't do a whole lot on this day because the husband always is working this holiday.)

but i hope you have a wonderful one though.

i have been a bad girl.
so i start the challenge tomorrow so of course yesterday i went to Modcloth & fell in love with all the dresses & i ordered 3 of them. i couldn't resist.
& i cant wear them til August 5th..ahh.
but i can't wait for the UPS man to bring them. i have so many new dresses to show you, but we will have to put that on hold...EXCEPT..
i did order a beautiful dress 3wks ago from Miss Selfridge & it came the day i left for vacation..so i put it on last night & made the husband take a picture of it for you..(obviously i did not wear it out, its a dressy dress.)

also..before i show you..
i wear a US size 6 in clothing so when i ordered this dress because it is international sizes i wasn't sure what size to order. i did get another dress from the same site in UK 10 and it fit loose and lovely & knowing that this dress would be tighter bc it is a shift dress & it doesn't really give in the fabric, i went with the UK 12.
it fit perfect everywhere except in the hips/butt area. so now i must lose 5lbs in that area to wear it with pride. lol. (also because i can not return it, because i live internationally.) 
BUT i absolutely love it, it's probably my favorite dress now.
