Dear Dress: I begged and begged Santa, er, I mean my mom, for you for Christmas, and luckily she got the hint after the 17 emails I sent her casually linking to you. And THANK GOODNESS she listened! I just love your big black dots and silky texture...you are so stinkin' cute, yes. you. are.
Dear (non-existent) Hat: I was planning on wearing you with this dress, but I forgot to grab you as I was walking out the door. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you, red beanie, even though you didn't make it into these photos, you somehow make me feel kind of cute. And kind of like a hipster. Now all I need is an espresso in hand and my French Bulldog by my side. And to start remembering to put my hat on before I leave the apartment.
Dear Boots: You are such an awesome new addition to my boot collection. I welcomed you on Christmas morning and you totally made my day. Even more than all the cheese and cupcakes I ate.
