Happy Valentine's Day, friend! I bought myself a pretty cymbidium orchid for the occasion. :-) I'm happy to share an interesting story about this red dress. I saw it in navy at the BR outlet a year ago and tried it on. I liked it, but for whatever reason (probably it was too expensive), I passed. About a month or two later, I traveled back to the store to return something and looked to see if they still had this dress. They did not so I said, "Oh well."

A couple of weeks ago I was at the BR Outlet again and spotted this on the clearance rack. I asked the saleslady if it was the same dress as last year and she said that she believed so. Not wanting to risk chance again, I purchased it in red! I love the cowl neck and fitted silhouette.

An extra special thank you for visiting on this love-filled day! Happy Valentine's!
