Latest Obsession: Cutout vs. Inset

     Dresses with asymmetrical cutouts have been getting more and more popular, and as this year's prom is getting nearer, I have been considering this trend as an option for my dress. I love both strategically cut slits and lace paneling. Each style turns a simple dress into a much more intriguing version of itself, while little glimpses of skin add unexpected sexiness. I want something a lot more simple this year that will focus more on the fun of it being my last prom. I want to take more of a risk and go edgier than I have in the past, so I like the way these dresses accomplish that without going overboard.

One Shoulder Lace Inset Black Dress - $15 -; Laced Drape Dress in Mocha - $58 -; Slinky Lace Inset Dress - $26.99 -;  Sparkle & Fade Ponte Cutout Beaded Bodycon Dress - $24.99 -; Balmain Studded Cutout Dress - $1,603.50 -; Alice & Olivia Tina Seamed Cutout Dress - $297 -

Spring Cleaning

     I officially envy anyone who lives in a climate where it's currently above 40° F or hasn't seen a snowflake for over a week. Being the second day of spring, you would think there would be rain and sun to welcome the new season, but New Hampshire always seems to throw us a curveball. The snow that was rapidly melting only a few days ago, has now been accumulating all day long. All I want right now is hot, hot weather!

      On another note, there are still some things that have put me in a spring mood regardless of the three added inches of snow on the ground. Saturday, the weather was actually nice (but this was pre-snowfall I remind you) and I had a spring shopping trip with my mom, complete with a book sale, Starbucks, and lots of irresistible tops at Banana Republic. Yesterday, I went dress shopping with my friend Rose and I found a perfect party dress for just under $15.

     Now, the part of my post that brings me to the reason it's titled "Spring Cleaning!" I've realized my blog-roll is pretty messy. Some blogs on it don't exist anymore or haven't posted for months and some I don't even know why they ended up on the list because I never visit them. So I'm going to work on cleaning it up and making it more relevant to what interests me and may interest you. If you would like me to include your blog, hit me up with an email and we can talk about exchanging links!
