Hola Chicas! Happy Wednesday! Let me just tell you that my nights have been filled with looking at formal gowns--to only be super disappointed! I finally found a dress I could not live without (yes, I know a tad dramatic! lol) only to find out it was sold out. Why must you have my size as the only size available Nordstrom? Only to then tell me the dress is not available when I go to pay for it? So sad! Let me tell you I've looked everywhere and on EVERY site. I found it on Ebay in a WAY too big for me size. But, I won't lie, I want it so bad I'm considering buying it and getting it majorly altered! Has this ever happened to you? Woe is me.. but seriously!

On a lighter note, when I saw this hat at Target I automatically put it in my basket! I'm a tad majorly obsessed with hats! They are such fun fashion accessories!

Who's That Girl?! It's Jess!

Hola dolls! Happy Tuesday! I'm feeling a bit "New Girl" in my look today! Hence the title! I hope your week has started out on a positive note! I've been busy scouring the web for formal dresses for 2 weddings I have in a couple weeks! And trying to keep cool! The air conditioning went out in our house yesterday and the repair man has no idea what's wrong! Thank goodness it has been raining here for the past week---because let me tell you---Texas summers are no joke!

Firework Show!

Hey Lovebugs! Hope you had an amazing Fourth of July! Mine was spent having WAYYYY too many sweets! Lol It was my cousin's 13th birthday and we had 2 cakes, cupcakes in the shape of hamburgers and chicken drumsticks, and tons of sugar cookies. I seriously did not eat any bar-b-que---I was eyeing the sweets from the beginning! I think I'm still coming off of that sugar high! =)
