It was a rainy Sunday today and the perfect day to wear a pretty dress. I found this dress at Urban Outfitters yesterday {during the 1.5-hour break we had in-between the wedding ceremony and reception that I went to} and couldn't pass it up for $15. It has such an vintage-y Anthropologie vibe to it, doesn't it?

Meanwhile, in undercover news, I tried Hollywood Fashion Tape for the first time today to hold up my strapless bra under this dress. That stuff totally works! I've been cheap all these years and just used simple double-sided tape, but now, I'll never go back!

Fortunately the rain lightened up this afternoon and this dress was perfect for the muggy weather.  Only a few more weeks of being able to wear such light dresses, so I'm taking advantage!

And to end the weekend on a high note, I had the chance to meet up with Crystal of cryskay this morning for brunch! Here we are after a good meal hiding out from the rain. :)

  19. these shoes actually are pretty comfy!  they're tall, but they have a rubber sole which makes them much softer on your foot than the normal hard sole that you find in typical shoes.  they're great for those days when i do have lots of errands to run on weekends!

  20. You look so feminine Kileen! Love the ruffle details on your cardigan, so pretty.
