Hello there! Welcome back!
I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter weekend. Mine was great, although the fact that it was Easter only played a small part. :)
Friday started the weekend off right with a "Bravos Buckhead Bar Crawl" for my friend Heather's birthday. We decked out in Braves gear and hit a bunch of bars over the course of the night. It was a unique experience for me, since I hardly ever make it down to Buckhead (I like to attribute this to the fact that it's because cabs are expensive from there to my house but it's quite likely the real reason is that Buckhead generally makes me feel old, haha).

Since I can't ever pass up a sale as good as this one, I tackled the fitting room with an armload of stuff. I tried on (I apologize for the crappy photography!):
|Tiered dress - loved this one and bought it!|
|Faux wrap dress - thought this one would be|
great for work and bought it!
|Flowy top with sheer trim - I wasn't sure how I felt|
about this one so I didn't get it.
What do you think? Good fit or not?
I also came back home and ordered 2 other dresses that I had tried on in-store. Both dresses were empire waist dresses and the problem I tend to have with empire waist (oh who am I kidding, tops and dresses in general) is that I have a size 6-8 waist and a size 12-14 chest. I often don't buy stuff because it fits in the chest but is too big in the waist or vice versa. With dresses, I usually have to buy the size that fits the girls and get the rest altered. Both of the dresses I tried on were 8s, and that was the biggest size they had in stock for either one. I couldn't zip them at the bust, but I loved the dresses, so I ordered them, in multiple sizes, when I got home. I'll post pictures when I get them!
Saturday night we went to a friend's house to grill. They had a bonfire going since it's still pretty chilly once the sun goes down, and we had a great time just hanging out.

I have some outfit pics from this week and I'll try and get those up in a different post. I'm still really trying to get a feel for how I want this blog to go or look or be so there will definitely be some growing pains. Bear with me!
