The Greek goddess look is something I wish I could channel and don all year long. It seems to sit well with me and my personal style preferences best! :)

What is it about white chocolate that is so incredibly delicious? I am a chocolate fanatic, but white chocolate has this sort of je ne sais quoi?... It's just so good. ♥

Thanks, I had a fun time with the "diy" project on my jeans.

The Grecian style is so elegant AND it's flattering for many body types. Leave it to the Greeks - the first to do everything!

I remember when I was a kid, my mother was always worried, because I liked to play with sheets and made dresses with them. lol

Equipo Dash and Cash said...

The ones that goes like flair I feel they are hard to wear fine, they can be really unflattering if you are not a tall skinny person.

But the ones wich embrasse the natural curves are some of my favorites models, love them!

I love goddess dresses! They are so glamours, but laid back. The drapping is really beautiful. I adore the black McQueen. I think Ashlee Simpson wore it. <3
