This is the perfect dress for macaroni and cheese binges, which I've been on lately! I'm actually having some left-overs from my lunch as I type. It's from the Co-op in Santa Monica and it's so oohey-gooey-good.
This dress is very forgiving yet figure flattering. The fabric drapes beautifully with the cross-over panels and nice tailoring.
It's also great for layering which is essential for Southern Cali living. It has spaghetti straps so it's perfect for a warm afternoon and then I can throw on a jacket and tights for the cool night breeze off the ocean. It's always a bit chilly at night by the beach in Santa Monica.
Best of all it was only $45! Surprisingly, it's Billabong but looks high-end contemporary.

Happy Thursday! Not as good as Friday but heck of a lot better than Monday! I'm super excited because my BF comes back from his Tawain business trip tonight. :)
