Ok.  So I've been looking for a black dress for a while now.  Problem is...most of them are made out of jersey and I don't care who you are, what size you are, or how old you are...jersey is NOT the most flattering material.  Especially after having a baby.  Since I'm an only girl I just very recently found out about Spanx...still have to try them.  Very excited about that.  But the downer is that they're pretty pricey.  Worth every penny from every girl that has worn them but pretty pricey.  But to be able to wear a jersey dress w/out  When was the last time that happened?  Haha!

Then I found this.

A lovely black dress that has a built in Spanx knock-off slip!  Not the best picture...but what can you do...?  Click on the link and you can see it much better!

So it's not only pretty but very realistic and flattering to any body type.  

Um can I say AWESOME!!!  

It's also modest and that neckline is versitile enough to wear a scarf in the winter or an awesome necklace in any other season.  

You can dress it up with heels or add a belt and boots for the winter.  

I think I'm in love.  LOVE!  

And the best part......drum roll please......

It's only $29.99!!!!  Woot woot!  

So in honor of this wonder dress...I decided to put together an outfit.  One to celebrate spring.  Ah spring...where did you go?  Why is there 4 inches of snow outside of my window right now?  I love you winter but it's time.  Move on...Let the little green blades of grass that have been so hopeful come up please.  Thank you.  

Alright...moving past my rant.  Here is my outfit.  

Ah shoes.  Probably my favorite part of an entire outfit.  One day...I will have a closet for shoes.  Love.

I've been LOVING purple lately.  Don't know's just speaks of happy and pretty.  And aren't these just so so cute?  Love the flower...

Now to the accessories.

Um...I think this necklace is about a cute as they come.  LOVE the flower.

I think any other accessory for this particular outfit would be a bit too much.  BUT!  You have to have a bag.  I mean have to.  It's a must.

And this bag...

I LOVE the way mustard and purple go together.  I'm kinda obsessing about it actually.

So what do you think of my outfit?  I really am going to buy that dress.  Probably today.  If it would stop snowing that is...
