______I feel like normally I'm unable to wear sleeveless dresses because of my wider-than-average shoulders, but for some reason, after trying this brilliant squash yellow dress on, that idea completely vanished from my mind.  My mom is the one who spotted it from afar--she's really the only person I'm able to shop with when I'm not shopping alone, and is always able to pick out the pieces which become my favorites.  She always knows what will look best on my interestingly-shaped figure, and I really don't know what I'd do without such an amazing shopping buddy as herself!

______Do you prefer shopping with a friend (or parent!), or are you more of a lone shopper?

You are just the cutest. First, braids. Love 'em. The dress looks lovely. And I always wish I had the guts to wear socks with heels and a dress like you're wearing there. You look fantastic :)

ooooo Ali I love the dress on you! That color is amazing, and your shoulders look FINNNNEEE i promise! Love the socks with heels, that's one of my fave looks! :)
And I like to shop with my mom (lol im THAT girl) but not with my friends. Im a fast and not fun to be with shopper so i dont want to intimidate my friends. My mom, on the other hand....well, she deals with it :P

I love the colour of this dress! It's just gorgeous! I love shopping with my mom. She definitely can pick out classic pieces that I can keep wearing forever. And she never lets me impulse buy which is wonderful.

your dress is such a nice butternut squash color :P Totally perfect for fall and THOSE SOCKS! They are so adorable, I love the color and the polka dots :) I like shopping with my friends but I take forever so if I actually want to buy anything, I usually go by myself (or with my mom)

LyddieGal said...

a perfect for you dress indeed! Of course I love it's bright sun shiney shade and the aline skirt is full of life and motion.

glad your momma has such a great eye!

Well... said...

Oh Ali, your polka dot shoes and hairstyle have just won me over - I love this! Plus, the butternut squash shade is just lovely on you. Your mom certainly has a fantastic eye for what works - I bet that's where you got it from :)
I personally prefer shopping alone. But when I do go with somebody, it's always with my fashion=minded friend Kirsten. She and I hit up the thrift stores together quite a few times. Haha, it makes it more fun! :)

You are so cute! I love the dress and the socks really spice up the whole outfit!

Inez said...

That dress looks splendid on you.

I'm a lone shopper. I've tried shopping with sibs and friends and they're just not as patient as I am. And I don't like to be rushed.

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

Your mom indeed has fantastic taste because this dress looks gorgeous on you! I absolutely love the color and feminine shape. Also LOVE how you paired it with patterned socks, I dont think I could pull that off but it looks fantastic on you! I personally enjoy shopping with my mom or alone when I'm shopping online ;)

I'm better alone or with my mom. My friends have totally different styles. (I have wide shoulders too! Very annoying at times, ha ha)
I wish I could wear a dress like that now, but I'd freeze
