i carried a watermelon

My pal Emily played personal shoppah for me last week and scored me this H&M dress that I was dreaming of.  It's actually sleveless, but I couldn't resist busting it out in spite of this psychotic weather we've been having (it snowed on Saturday!  in March!  in Texas!).  This pale ballet pink is actually a color I love but have never been 100% on whether it looks that great on me, so I think the contrasting black tights and grey cardi are doing me a favor.  And keeping me warm.

(I was going for some pose variation here, but it looks like I stepped in something & am checking to see what it is.)

dress: H&M, cardi: JCrew, shoes: Georgina Goodman, belt: vintage, jewelry: Anomaly (ring), F21 (earrings), Liz Claiborne (bracelet), hair clip:  JCrew

I think I just put my finger on what drew me to this dress so much, as I was writing this post:

Add a curly wig and Rod in head to toe black, and I think I have a Halloween costume for this year.  Although I did want to go as Humpty from Digital Underground...

Aaaaand that's enough tangents for one post.
