Railene in Noir

    I absolutely adore the Railene Dress from Stop Staring!  I found it for a steal on PoshMark in Navy and I've seen other styles come up on other resale sites since then.  This time around I decided to buy from the company to get the latest color combo in black and ivory.  Black and ivory is one of my favorite color pairs.  Add a little pale peachy-pink to the mix and you have my trifecta of color perfection.
    Since I already own this style of dress, you may have read my review.  However, that was around two years ago and I figured it was time to do another.  I promise I'll keep it short and sweet.  This dress is awesome.  There's a reason they keep making this dress in different colors.  I would recommend that you order up one size.  I normally wear XS or even XXS depending on the brand, but for this beauty I ordered a size small and still had to wiggle into it.  I would also recommend some body shaping garments to smooth your lines a little and a bra with a bit of boost to really take advantage of this neckline. 
    I'd love it if I just naturally fit into everything and looked great doing it, but I've seen pencil dresses go wrong way to many times to just randomly recommend them.  The thing I love about this dress is that it actually flatters my curvy hips and bottom, but even I feel a little shy about wearing form fitting clothing.  If you've got the confidence to wear it, you really can't go wrong with this style and let's face it, sometimes a little shape-wear can help give us the confidence we need to try something new.

Under the Tulip Tree

This was a beautiful morning.  With everything in bloom and just a hint of fog creating a soft glow on everything, I just had to stop and take a few photos under this beautiful tulip tree.  I love these trees; they just may be my favorite springtime blossom.  This particular tree is nestled up against a cozy little charity house that provides free meals to local families in need, so I didn't have to go into anyone's front yard to take these pics and that's a plus, but I was prepared to go knock on a door and ask permission at the  home with the only other tulip tree in town until I found this one.  I'm glad I got a few pics when I did, because this is the midwest, where it's 65 degrees today and 30 degrees by the next.  Since I've got a little room left here, I'll do a quick dress review for this Sleeveless Lace Fit and Flare from ModCloth.  I've got nothing but love for it.  Even though it's a size small, it fit my frame pretty well and the color was so much more vibrant than I expected.  I can't wait to wear it to a summer wedding or two.
