As I was shopping in Target and picked out this dress below, which I adored, a woman walked by and said "Don't Buy That. It's Ugly". Given she had on a crazy outfit, I took that to mean that it was a safe bet to buy the dress and took the chance that I might have more style knowledge than she.
You like? You can't tell but it has peach straps and a peach underlay at the bottom that pokes out - click on the "buy here" tab below to really see it in all its glory.

I also had some exciting news at work this week - I work at a college, and in the Division of Student Affairs. For those who don't know there is the Academic and Student Affairs Divisions, both separate - yet continuously trying to work together and not apart! (Can I get a what what Student Affairs Professionals?)
Yesterday I won the Outstanding Service Award for my division - was pretty excited, and even heard I get a cash bonus. Money in the bank!! It was a little awkward because they make you stand on stage while they read a long memo about how awesome you are and all the accomplishments you have completed. As the lights from the stage bore into my skin and made me sweat like a sinner in church, I stood there in my white dress and started dripping sweat in areas I only hope no one could see. It was nast. It was just nothin' but sweat underneath my lovely, white dress. I was petrified when I turned around there'd be butt sweat on my dress. Seriously who knew winning an award could be such a sweat-inducing workout? Whoa Nelly.
Either way - I felt really honored and privileged to receive. I also received it alongside one of my co-workers, below. Isn't she adorbs?
