Dress #5: 71 Dresses in 71 Days

Since I’ve been getting dolled up daily Henry thinks I’m having an affair. I am. With you guys. I’ve worn five dresses in five consecutive days to keep myself from shopping. I have 66 dresses and 66 days to go.  But if I’m going through all of this effort to glam up for you guys I expect something in return. Chocolate. With or without caramel. Perhaps some marshmallow inside. And send you’re No Shopping photos to shannoncolleary@aol.com and I’ll post them alongside mine.

This dress is from White House, Black Market.  I was walking by their store on my way to buy a Wetzel Pretzel when a centrifugal force beyond my control bore me into the store and out several dollars later.

    this one is cute. I love print and I have to say, I haven’t been inside white house/black market since they were two different stores LOL

    I’m totally enjoying following you along on your 71 day journey. You should definitely create a dress collage when you’re done so we can see your dress style!

    I am enjoying this series, as I can live vicariously ! (Being short, squat and blessed with spider varicose veins, not many dresses in my closet). However I think it would have been more fun to have quietly upped the ante to “100 dresses” before starting ;P

    Yes!! The best one so far. Like the necklace and the way it lies. Like the bracelet and the classic shoes. Keeper
