Happy Monday friends! Imagine my excitement when I found this pretty peach dress on the racks at my favorite Atlanta consignment shop recently. I was shocked to see the label was Forever 21 and pleased at the price. I got it for $10 and used my store credit to purchase. I did a few alterations to it - shortening the straps and the bordered hem. This was the perfect dress for a friend's engagement/bridal shower this past weekend! Thank you for visiting today.

Wow Mary Ann. This indeed a magnificent "Peach Treat" for the eyes. Simply superb & stunning. Your flowery decolletage is gorgeous and the accessories exciting ! And your zillion dollar smile takes the cake!

I can't believe that dress is from Forever21! It just looks so much better quality- it's so pretty.
