Happy 1st day of spring!!! Depending on where you live, it may not quite feel and or look very much like spring yet- but it never hurts to prepare in advance 😊 I’ve said before that in my mind, floral prints are synonymous with warmer weather. This mixed media shift dress is a part of Gwynnie Bee’s (online women’s clothing subscription service) new spring wear haul. I was curious about how the fit would be, as shift dresses can be tricky on my pear shaped frame. I was pleasantly surprised with how well it fit (I sized up), even my hubby was a fan, LOL! This dress is versatile; it can be dressed up or down, all depending on your style needs and preferences. In true spring-like fashion I opted to style it with pink, but I can also picture it styled seamlessly with pale grey, periwinkle, or olive. The fantastic thing about Gwynnie Bee is that a membership with them affords you the opportunity to try out name brand, trendy and classic pieces at your own pace, plus you have the option to purchase items or to send them back for something even better❣ 
I just might have to purchase this dress ❤❤❤

On another note: I think that this dress caused a car accident!!! While hubby and I were shooting this look, a car accident occurred, literally RIGHT IN FRONT OF US! So, we were just getting started, and less than 10 minutes in, I hear the loudest bang EVER and then see a luxury car spin/side out directly across the street from us-hitting the light pole! All four airbags deployed, but the driver and passengers made it out of the car in one piece.  The driver ran off on foot in true Los Angeles style, while two of the passengers stayed behind to chat with the police (including one that did suffer head/facial injuries). How the accident occurred was that the driver was not paying attention/appeared to be distracted (was he looking at this dress?) and he ran the red light, causing another car who had the right away to hit him at a significant speed. WHEW! After all that and during the investigation and other activities that unfolded, we continued on with our shoot. Distractions are a dime a dozen here! There are so many interesting things that happen while we are shooting, and just in general- I may start sharing them from time to time… 
Do tell: Do you think that this dress caused the crash?!

Until next time,
XO
