A little break. . . maybe

Today officially starts Spring Break for me. . .well sort of.

This much needed break couldn't have come at a better time. I mean, it will be great to not have to worry about deadlines for the next week, but I do have to worry about them for when I get back.

No word about the TOMS internship yet, I wouldn't expect anything for a while. . . I'm still nervous and on the edge of my seat hoping and praying that I get this internship. If you haven't noticed already, I am EXTREMELY passionate about giving!

I am still planning, purchasing, arranging, and promoting the TOMS Style Your Sole Party at O'More College of Design on March 27th!! Please come out for a fun time and help promote a GREAT cause. You can purchase your shoes at the event from Nashville Clothing Company if you haven't already purchased some. :)

I know you have heard me say enough about that so I am going to talk about something a little different. . . . SURPRISE!!!!

The O'More annual cocktail party is coming up. Myself and the rest of SGA are doing our best to top last years. . . and I think we might just be doing that.

I wanted to buy a new dress for this occasion, but due to a budget, I don't see that happening. . .I can however dream and research dresses online, and here is what I found:

This AMAZING gown was found when I was searching for a yellow dress. Don't ask me why I wanted yellow, I have no tan, but I really wanted one.

I saw this dress and instantly fell in love!! I honestly don't dress up often but when I do, I like to do it right. After a little more research I found that this dress came out in 2007 and it is Oscar de la Renta. . . . . FACT: Oscar de la Renta is not cheap, kinda like $8995 NOT CHEAP! Of course my heart was broken after seeing that price tag and this dress was extremely far out of reach.

Moving on:
This cute little number was found on Etsy.

This dress would fit my body perfectly because of the high waist line and the way it flows down. . . .my hips need a little privacy so this dress could totally take care of that. But the more I look at it, the more I realize that it isn't really what I am looking for in regards to a cocktail dress. Don't get me wrong, still really cute, just not the "ONE".

I'm a tough shopper. Unless I feel like it is the "ONE" or an unbelievable deal, I won't buy it.

Then there was this dress:

Again, perfect cut for my body style and it accentuates the small waist and torso but there is just something about yellow and black that reminds me too much of being like a bumble bee. Not that yellow and black don't go together, but I prefer canary yellow with a navy. This dress also reminds me of a 50's house wife. . .and I don't know that it would compliment my hair style.

Call me crazy. . .but there is something about this dress. . . I'll need to marinate on it a little more to figure out what it is, and I know it goes against everything in a dress that will flatter my body. . .but I'm liking it.

Since I haven't found any winners, I guess the search will continue. I will try and keep you updated, but there are no promises. Well. . .no promises but more than likely.

Don't forget to get your TOMS and give a pair of shoes to a child in need. . . . .I can't wait for the new wedges!!! Check the beautiful babes out!!

FACT: I WILL own one in each color!!

One for One :)
