Summer Dress

I cannot help but love this Tibi dress. The uneven hemline, the colors, the back .... too bad it's way out of my price range.

It's always fun to get the Anthropologie catalogue in the mail (I try to get most of my catalogues paperless but there's something about flipping through Anthropologie's colorful, beautifully-styled pages). Below are some favorites from the May issue!
