Touch me, I’ll shoot (Bow)
Shake a little ass (Money)
You get a little bag and take it to the store (Store, money)
Get a little cash (Money)
You shake it real fast, you get a little more (Money)

I remember a time when I wasn’t into this Kelly green color. The color green is my all time fave but this shade in particular just rubbed me the wrong way; I used to refer to it as “Fake Green”…..don’t question my methods OK….?

But when the perfect cut to a garment is taken into consideration…you can get away with and fall in love with just about ANY color. This dress changed my perspective on this green altogether, it may seem minor to you, but trust me it’s hella huge for me.


I featured this dress in a bright orange-leaning red, a few posts back (I went on a full tangent in that post by the way), and I’m just as in love with this colorways as I was with that one.


Now, I’m well aware that the temps are beyond freezing ridiculousness, but I really don’t care. I’ve been known to not exactly dress for the weather from time to time, like to call it fashion over function. And to be honest, to doesn’t hurt that I shot this look in the middle of summer; oh the perks of having archived photo sets when you aren’t able-bodied enough to do a more up to date posts.


I decided to rock this dress with a pair of strappy lavender sandals, the color combo is absolute perfection and if this entire outfit doesn’t scream “Where da Spring weather at?”…I don’t know what would. I swear, I’m perpetually trying to will the weather Gods to make the weather forever a cool and tolerable 70 degrees, with my wishful thinking and a slightly inappropriate outfit for the current state of the weather.


And,despite what you see in my highly curated posts here and on my social media, I’m totally a fan of my VBO and have no shame in my game. I often toggle between “I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly'“, and “bask in all this artistic photographic “perfection”…”; not to say that they aren’t or can’t be synonymous.

In any event, my jelly is out to play and I don’t think you’re ready baybay.
