Two Sides to Every Story

This bright colored sun dress is so sweet and sugary, with its over sized spots and slightly voluminous waist; I half expected to see the Brady Bunch pop out and sing Sun Shiny Day. If I was in a cheerful, over the top, super happy musical, this is definitely the dress I would wear as I sang with the chirping birds and stopped to pet all the animals in my neighborhood.

Unsurprisingly, my natural urge to convert all things pretty into an edgy, grunge esque style is still alive and kickin' as I pull on my Timberland boots while donning this prep girl piece. Although the finished product proved to be pretty unconventional, I was pleasantly surprised with how good this cavity inducing piece looked when it was a little bad.

(dress is vintage, flats are from hot topic, and sunnies are from wet seal, hello kitty purse from sanrio, and blue tights from target)
