For being such a girly girl, it's amazing that I don't own more dresses. It probably has to do with the fact that just about every dress I try on would have to be altered in some way (I discussed in detail my fit issues here). Since most of the ones I do have are warm-weather dresses, I was thrilled when I found this tweed style in my size on clearance. And the best part of all? No alterations necessary.
