i want these...



it must be that i've been watching jane austen movies, and "becoming jane", read "austenland" by shannon hale, and now am reading "mansfield park" by jane austen, that i am finding myself totally in loooooove with dresses, i mean i've always have loved them but now i picture myself wearing them everyday all day, which is totally ridiculous seeing that i live in a farming community, and i already stick out like a sore thumb cause i wear "city" pants instead of wranglers, but wouldn't it be so grand to wear cute dresses everyday and just have it be totally normal? i really need to back off on jane austen it's getting kind of ridiculous!

you would look too cute in those dresses and you could wear them to church and not stand out at all!:)
i totally agree with you though, i always watch the romantic movies and the girls wear pretty little sundresses and skirts all the time and i would love to dress like that. all pretty and girly.

You're so funny! I love dresses too...but only when I'm skinny! One of the reasons I loved my mission is I got to wear skirts and dresses everyday, yes, I am such a girl!

So cute! I love those dresses! I have the same thoughts about wearing dresses every day... I do love wearing my comfy jeans, but dresses are so feminine!

Mindy said...

p.s. Where did you find these dresses? I want one!

mindy, down east basics, there's a link to it on my favorite places. i like them cause they have cute stuff like anthro, but not even a smidge as expensive! although there's a lot more cute stuff at anthro (bigger selection) but the prices are outrageous!

i think i'm buying me the black ones...something about black dresses that i love! the yellow one as cute as it is, probably wont look as cute on.

i love down east and their dresses are sooooo comfy!!!! i live in the one i have. wear it all the time- sometimes just to lounge and not feel like a scrounge. buy one, at least one. and for all that are looking for a cute dress costco is having a dress event. i was there on saturday but my little girl wouldn't let me look at them too close- we were shopping for dad. i think they ran up to $75. not bad, but not as good as down east.

Oh no, Vanessa!!! Now I HAVE to have a swimsuit from Tawnie's modbe, and I HAVE to have a dress from Downeast, and I don't have enough money!!! Those dresses are so cute!!!

SOOO cute! I used to wear cute little dresses and skirts all the time, in fact, just the other day, I was thinking, when did I devolve to wearing jeans ALL THE TIME?! It's much more practical with kids, but not nearly as fun!

Hey Vanessa...
I have both the top two dresses, and I wear them all the time...I'm sure I stick out like a sore thumb here in California too...but maybe for different reasons (like being the crazy lady with five kids). Anyway, there's nothing wrong with being over-dressed...I'd much rather be that than underdressed!

You'll love the dresses though...and they're so affordable. Under $30 for each one I think!
