colorblock illusion dress


"If you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done." -Thomas Jefferson

The weather in New York is getting pretty cold so this is probably one of the last times I'm going to be showing this much skin. The cold is unbearable for a Florida girl. I really love this yellow and black colorblock dress. The design of it reminds me of the illusion Stella McCartney dress Gwyneth Paltrow wore a couple months back to the 2012 Grammys. I obviously have curves but the design of the dress makes it appear that I have more. I use to be so against wearing my hair up, but lately I can't help but wear it in a high bun or ponytail. Not really sure where it came from. I think it was during fashion week when I tried stepping out my comfort zones, wearing my hair down being one of them. As you guys know, I'm obsessed with cats. If I'm not instagramming cats, then I'm on tumblr reblogging them, especially lions and tigers. I was taking these pictures uptown, near 170th street and this cute kitty kept coming up to me for attention. As you can see in the picture, this is how excited I get whenever I'm around them. I don't have any pets now that I live in NY, they're all back home in Florida. A guy walked by and called him yellow, I think Yellow was the building cat. Clearly this cat is orange and not yellow but I still wanted to snatch him up and take him home. The picture where I'm smiling, I'm actually screaming how cute he was and doing my baby voice that I only use while speaking to animals.

I do the exact same thing! Something about cute cats just makes my brain shut down. I can't be taken to pet stores...it's not good...

PS. Love the dress, but love the smile more.
