After shelling out for upcoming trips and much-needed purchases (goodbye, creaky mattress from Boston’s Craigslist—ew), I’ve put a short leash on personal purchases. I could be convinced, however, to get this saffron dress from Wikstenmade‘s newest collection. Reason number one: versatility. I could dress it up or down. Reason two: the color is amazing! And three: with the mild winters in Texas (cf. Chicago, Boston) this would work year-round. Okay, I think I just convinced myself.
