oasis romantic print dress

I had been on the hunt for this dress for a long time.  I had seen it on a couple of bloggers when I first started taking a real interest in fashion, but by then, it was gone from the ASOS website.  I had searched for it on eBay and through closet sales with no luck.  And then back in the fall, Kate sent me a huge and unexpected box of clothes she didn't want anymore.  As I sorted through all of the pieces, I gasped out loud when I realized that this dress (which had eluded me for so long!) was among what she sent me.  It's such a romantic and unique piece, and I'm so happy it's found its way into my life.  I guess it was closet kismet!

It's been unbearably cold and incredibly snowy here over the past couple of weeks, so it's fortunate that I have a backlog of outfit photos to post.  The temperatures have hovered anywhere from 0-20 degrees, and the snow in my backyard is knee-height!  I'll eventually have to brave the frigid weather, but goodness, I'm already desperate for spring to arrive.

The show I'm in closes today.  I've really had a lot of fun (and I honestly wasn't really expecting to), and though it's not a show I'd want to do forever, I'll be a little sad when it's over.  I won't be in another show until May, so I'm hoping to tackle some of the items on my resolutions list (like learning to sew and starting to exercise again) in March.  The Oscars are on tonight, but I'm probably going to continue the tradition of watching The Great British Baking Show and Downton Abbey.  I love Sunday evenings these days.
