We should all learn to love the mini dress. With all the parties, weddings, events, and especially the holidays I can’t seem to get enough mini dresses in my closet to wear as I go to all of these fun festivities.

I paired it with some black booties, but was also tempted to slip on some platforms and make it even more fancy. I also can’t get over the amazing colors of this dress… the dreamy sherbet colored sky even decided to match it.

To top it off, or rather bottom it out, they’ve just launched their Skivvies line – ultra girly, delicate, and insanely covetable lingerie.
