Good Afternoon!  I have been admiring all of the designs by Self-Portrait over the last year or so – they are all so flirty and feminine. I finally splurged and bought this beautiful Cold Shoulder Floral Printed dress. The color really jumped out at me as a must have.  The dress is so far out of my comfort zone and what one would normally find in my closet – the floral print, the flirty ruffles, the bright color, and the flowy-ness of the skirt – but I just couldn’t pass it up.  It has been hanging in my closet since the beginning of December just waiting, begging to be worn!

I finally wore it two weekends ago to a cocktail party with my husband.  We were at a company event being hosted at The Ritz- Carlton Bacara resort in Santa Barbara.  For someone who is much more comfortable in a pair of pants, I wore this dress with ease.  March screams green to me, and with spring on the horizon, I thought the dress would be perfect choice.

Have you ever had your eye on a piece, bought it, and then waited a couple of weeks/months to actually wear it?
