Getting Lucky in this Dress

Belt: Target | All Others: Forever 21

Now that I have your attention from the title of this post, I'm technically not getting lucky.  Actually, the dress you see here was featured in this month's Lucky magazine. So, I guess it's the one getting lucky. Anyway, I came to a dead stop when I saw MY dress on page 30. Holy cow, I don't think I have ever owned an item that has popped up in a fashion mag before. I mean, of course I have gone out and bought something after I have seen it in a magazine, but never have I already owned something and then have it show up.


I actually got this color block dress last year. It was part of Forever 21's Heritage 1981 collection.  I have worn the heck out of it...to work, church, a shower and out to dinner. Twenty-five dollars well spent, don't you think? Well, I guess it was a fan favorite because Forever 21 brought it back again this summer.  I looked online and didn't see it, but you may want to check your local store if you are interested.

And it's not too late to join the Bauble Swap. Almost 40 ladies have already signed up and are well on their way to giving and receiving a piece of jewelry to/from a fellow blogger. It's going to be fun and a great way to meet new friends. Deadline is July 15th.

Cheers to getting lucky!
