What do you all think regarding ruffles? I used to believe they looked nice on other people, but that they werent my "style". Then I encountered this rose dress and fell in love! I looove this dress so much, I have worn it to death since I got it. I had this idea of re-emphasizing the ruffles by macking them peek out of a semi-closed cardi. I really like the results! I also liked the idea of addign a red ribbon as a belt in order to make the outfit even cuter.

The famous blizzard that has been affecting so many places also affected me today. It started off strong but very pretty, something like this:

But by the end of the night, the snow was pilled up so high it was impossible to walk in all of that snow! I couldn't believe how much snow had fallen! It was so much that the bushes outside my apartment looked like little bumps in the snow, jejeje:

In fact, it was SO much snow that some cars were swallowed by it:

Of course, like so many people traveling at this time of the year, one of my flights to return home for the holidays was cancelled. I had to do all sorts of magical plans to how to get there, not that any of them worked... jeje, more on that in the next post :)

Here are other ways in which I've worn this beloved rose dress:

  1. You look soooo beautiful in these shots in the snow. Its like something from a postcard. I just love the floral print dress with the mustard colored cardigan on top. The little ribbon box that you tied around your waist as a belt is the finishing touch. You look super beautiful in this outfit.

  2. i couldnt agree more with the above comments. this #6 was my favorite pic. I had not seen the other great pics with the umbrella poses as well. the bright outfit is a great contrast going against that background blizzard. very powerful and cool. and the color combinations match everywhere..even the last pic where the red hairpiece, your lipstick and your dress all pull together. congratulations and merry christmas. jgm

  3. Love the colors in this outfit! The ribbon around your waist and the bow in your hair are nice touches.

    That snow is crazy! Beautiful photos. Glad you were finally able to get to Panama!
