Outfit Details:
Dress: Macy's in NYC (very old)
Roses pin: Mom's
Ballet slippers: dance store
love/dream ring: American Eagle (old)

The last (and only time) I wore this dress was when I was a senior in high school!  That means it's been sitting in my closet for 6+ years, unworn and loved only from afar.  It's such a romantic piece -- it looks almost like a nightgown or negligee -- and it's not one that can be worn in many circumstances.  But it's so dreamy that I thought it would be a perfect complement to yesterday's post.  The dress I wore yesterday felt like I was in that almost-falling-asleep-place, and this dress feels like I've been dreaming for hours.  I wish all my dreams were this ethereal.

It's verrrrry hard to see, but this little ring has "love/dream" etched on it.  I got it from American Eagle a very long time ago, and haven't worn it in nearly as long.  But I like its simplicity and obviously, loving and dreaming are two of my favorite things in the world.

Leftovers from my DIY floral crown!  That'll make an appearance here pretty soon.

I started using Flickr for today's photos, instead of just uploading them directly to the post.  I think the quality is much higher.  My photos tend to be a little blurry anyway, but uploading them directly to blogger was making them have an even lower quality.  I may be the only one who notices the difference, but when I compared the two options side by side, Flickr was the clear winner.  Despite the fact that it's an extra step, I think I'll be using Flickr from now on.

Have a dreamy day!

  3. It does look like a nightgown but a beautiful delicate one. I love the rose pin with it!! :D

    Blogger quality can get super bad if you don't save it correctly. Flickr is usually super good but you may notice a color difference.

  4. I love your blog, Sammi! You look enchanting in purple!

  6. This dress has such a perfect summer vibe to it and purple (as do most soft colors) look incredible on you.

  7. Okay, so I don't know if you've ever read Game of Thrones, but this reminds me of something that the character Daerynes would wear... maybe it's the color or the fabric or the silky edges, but it's sooo pretty and princess-like, hehe. I seriously adore it.

    Flickr is awesome in terms of having much higher quality photos on your blog. I can definitely see a difference with you. Just watch out for the creepers! D: DUN DUN DUN.

    1. Gah, I don't watch GOT but I've been meaning to for a while. I shall get on that. And oh NO, why?! Because they can like search for photos on Flickr itself? :( Mehhhh!

  8. These photos are absolutely adorable, you look SO pretty and I love those ballet shoes! xx
