OK, so I'm an idiot: I'm a-dither because I bought great earrings today and a great dress. If money were no object, and sadly it is, I would have bought many more great things, but am content with the two colorful additions to my possessions.

Ok, but the thing about the dress that I like the best is def the pockets. They are gigantic and I LOVE them. I had to take the dress off in order to get a decent picture.
