I got a tan (actually a lobster sunburn at first) from a beach getaway weekend thus the very summer vibe...Notice though the mistake I have to live with though for 2-3 weeks (please let it fade now!) which is the rosary henna that is very visible on my foot, an effect of dehydration and diphenhydramine (IM) drunkenness combined with decision making and a strong urge to act out on my stupid ideas. So lucky I dodged a bullet as it is TEMPORARY and not something I have to live with forever.

Anyway I was so bright and glittery the whole day... I guess I just wanted a loud color to highlight my now darker skin and this seemed like the perfect dress to do so. I realized I was quite hard to miss that Tuesday when I wore this for the weekly family din-din followed by some BFF catching up and business meeting over at Barcino (a wine place) at, where else, Rockwell.
The thing I really love about the dress is that it has such a distinct Missoni feel to it, given that zigzag knits in multiple hues and tones are the Italian brand's signature look. On a related note, the thing I really hated about the dress is that is originally meant to be worn as a cover up...but being the rebel I am, I braved the cold mall air-conditioning and basically froze (fabulously) the whole night. Note to self: save the cover ups for the beach, no matter how amazing they look.
