Fun Fashion Friday

Hi Friends!  Yesterday, I wore a dress to work, which I am known to do on occasion, and remembered an amusing anecdote about said dress that I thought would be particularly "blogworthy".  This dress is one that I found when my precious friend Megan was visiting earlier this fall.  We went to this great boutique call Roots, which just has fabulous clothes and I saw this dress and fell in love.  It is so versatile and can be worn just about year round.  I love the frills and the purple color. 
I even decided to wear it as my party dress for my birthday!

Here I am with my cousins at Thanksgiving wearing said dress with a black long-sleeve and leggings for the cooler temps. 
I have to admit that the thing I love most is the pinafore-like sleeves with the ruffles that stand up.  It  was the detail that first drew my eye to the dress in the store.  Well, after further review, I now know that I am not the only one who chose a ruffly pinafore-like dress for her birthday...

Oh, Molly, I guess it wasn't my idea after all.  You see, Molly was my very first American Girl doll.  I still remembered how I agonizingly pored over each page of the Pleasant Company catalog trying to decide which doll would be the right one.  Since as a second-grader I had recently gotten glasses myself, I decided Molly would be the perfect choice.  I loved reading all about her adventures during the World War II era and had such fun adding to her wardrobe and accessories.  Anyway, seeing that picture brought back fun memories!! 

Hope you all are having a fabulous Friday and a Happy Weekend to all!!
