Dress? c/o Dream-ers (made in the US,here) Jacket? Costa Blanca Belt? Vintage
Purse? Vintage Boots? Nine West

When Dream-ers sent me this dress last summer, I was all heart-eyed emoticons over it. I thought it was a dress worthy of getting married in but it arrived a few years late for that, so I did the next best thing and wore it running through fields with my crocs on, avoiding ticks. Shooting those pics with Julie was such a fun evening and it resulted in my most shamefully picture heavy post ever. Also one of my favourite posts...  
A few months later I carefully cut the tulle over-layer off and I wore the dress for my last minute 30th birthday party in October. I cancelled my big birthday party plans in favour for a low key get together because it ended up being such a busy time but I decided to still dress up like it was a big party. It was my party and I'll cry if I want to. And dress up if I want to.
And then this weekend I wore it again with my trusty leather jacket and two pairs of black tights. I like the frothy white of the dress against the opacity of the double tights. There's something fun about wearing a bright white dress on a bright winter day. Also fun? Skating in heels across the  completely ice covered parking lot...
Thank you Matt for the pictures and for the arm you offered in assistance to make it to my purple wall of choice.

Loved that dress in the summer shoot but I think I love it a lot more in all its winter white glory. The Leather+lace=yes!!

I love the contrast of the lacy white and the leathery black. The gold chain accents are perfect.

What a spectacular change from the last photo shoot! And that's some skill you're showing just standing on that impressive looking sheet of ice there!
