I have never watched the show. I am certainly not desperate, nor am I a housewife. But when I step into this dress, I feel the urge to ask my dude to go tend the yard and pretend he's my hot gardener. What's funny is that he actually is hispanic and doesn't think it's as amusing. Boo.
My mother used to suggest me to wear more orange and yellow because it apparently compliments my skin tone. It was just pretty tough to find outfits in these colours that I would actually buy. I'm glad to have found this cute number. Call me crazy but you can't wear orange/yellow and stay in a crappy mood for long. It's not summer anymore but this dress sure helps bring back some of that sunshine.
Two of the best things about this outfit. The shoes and the dress bodice.

Not only did I love the colours of this dress, I absolutely adore the front detail. It has some light boning along both sides, features a sweetheart neckline and a ruched bodice to give the dress some texture on the upper half. I work at a middle school, so I like that the fabric is 97% cotton. I can just chuck it in the washer without worrying about crayons or juice ruining it forever.
Ah, the shoes. OH, THE SHOES! I am not much of a shoe fanatic but I had to have these. A black ribbon forms a dainty bow and the scalloped edges make them that more precious. And if you look closely, there's roses etched unto the front of the shoes. Heck, even the in-soles have glittery lace on them.
I apologize for not posting last week as I've been a pretty busy bee starting my new job and all....but here's another pic of the shoes for you to swoon over because I'm nice like that :P
