ModCloth recently had one of their crazy 70% off sales and this dress had been on my wishlist for a little while, so I decided to go for it. I'm glad I did, because I love it! I really liked the color and gingham pattern, the collar on the halter, and the fact that the halter collar is actually removable so I could just wear this strapless if I wanted to. I don't know why I would, though since the collar is a lot of what makes this dress awesome.
I originally bought it wanting to style it in the fall, but I couldn't wait and I figured it should stand alone as an outfit instead of layering it with cardigans and tights. Also, the brand is German and that's awesome. I want to start learning German again, and I like that this dress has a sort of Oktoberfest feel to it. If I liked beer, I would wear this to a brewery or an Oktoberfest event at some point.
My raspberries were only a dollar something, which is crazy to me. If you go to the grocery store and get a container smaller than the one I used to pick these, you'd pay about $4.99 for it. It's ridiculous. I really hope to someday have enough land to grow my own produce so I can have it fresh and not super expensive.
Up next will be apples. I love going to the orchard and trying all kinds of different apple varieties. I can't wait to start baking apple and pumpkin things. Since it's the first time I that I have my own place, it will be the first time that I get to do holiday stuff on my own. We will get to decorate for Halloween and fall and get our own little Christmas tree. It's going to be really exciting! I think it'd be cool if my cousin and I started our own little traditions.
