When I saw this dress on ModCloth , I knew I had to have it. The day after it arrived I wore it to work and everyone at the library loved it. I love that not only is the print books, but there are actual titles on some of the books in the print such as Gone With The Wind and Little Women. The dress is also very comfortable and well-made, and the colors are so rich and gorgeous. I'm extremely happy with it, and it has quickly become one of my new favorites and go-to dresses!
This dress is from ModCloth's namesake label, and I'm pretty impressed with it. The only thing that was hard for me was trying to figure out what size to get. When looking at the size chart for their label, it looked like I was somewhere between a small and a medium. I didn't want a waist that's too tight, especially when it comes with a belt that can fix a slightly larger waist. I also didn't want the bust to be too baggy. I ended up sizing up from my usual small to the medium. I think I probably could've gone with the small, but the little bit of extra room makes the dress even more comfortable and like I said, the belt helps!
In addition to the book dress, I thought wearing my Harry Potter ring would add even more bookish nerdy goodness to my outfit. Can't say no to an excuse to wear anything Harry Potter-related!
I'm pretty sure I visit this used bookstore at least once a month. That's about as long as I can go before I get the itch to go again. I love perusing all the books and the stock is never the same as the last time you go. The kitties and free snacks and tea are pretty awesome, too. :) I only got one book this time. It was Pandemonium from the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver. I already read the series and loved it, but I collect the books that I've read and it was in amazing condition, so I bought it. I still need the other two in the series.
So this couple saw Chris and I taking pictures and he had this puppy with him who was in training to be a service dog. He asked if I wanted a puppy in my pictures, and of course I said yes. Who would say no to that? He was so adorable!
Speaking of books... Chris told me that Stephen King wrote a few books under the name Richard Bachman to see if people would still like his books if they didn't have his name on them and if they didn't know it was him who wrote it. There's one of them that I really want to read called Rage, but it's unfortunately out of print so I have to hunt down a used copy, probably on the Interwebz. I guess there's a book that has four of the books written under Bachman all in one, so I might just get that one if it's easier to find.
