Sneak peek

Friday, December 11, 2009
Updated: Many of you asked about my dress. I got it at a local boutique called French Cuff. They have a website and they did have a few more of that dress in different sizes when I bought mine last week. The brand is Virginia Taylor. I LOVED the dress. It was so cute and comfortable and I received tons of compliments on it.
