don't laugh. i didn't know...

...that my dress had pockets.

i tried the dress on in the dressing room the night that i bought it. didn't notice the pockets. wore the dress for an entire day, loved the details, the zipper, the cut and the color. again, didn't notice the pockets. you would think someone like me (obsessed with pockets!) would have discovered these immediately. and as you can tell by these pictures, i had not yet even noticed them. 

so how did i notice them? when i was adjusting my dress, i noticed "extra material" underneath. yeaaaah, the lining of pockets. sometimes my head is somewhere else. who knows? i totally laughed about it the rest of the day (and there really wasn't much of a day left, really).

blue dress: belk
black cardigan: kristen davis
blue tights: hue
vintage boots: madison
either way, i was in love with the dress when i bought it - and fell even deeper in love with it after discovering the pockets. it's like any relationship. you love the person but then you find something unique and special while getting to know him a little better and you end up loving him even more than you imagined!

speaking of being in love...
