Craving Crustaceans

Words cannot describe how excited i am to share today's lobster-ific post (hence why I have resorted to making up words)!

Much like my lemon print dress, the lobster dress came to me in a dream! One morning I woke up craving a dress covered in coral colored crustaceans, perfect for twirling through clam bakes, fish shacks or beach parties. Now all I had to do was find one, but that ended up being easier said than done. I searched every store I could think of (modcloth, j.crew) and even resorted to simply googling "lobster dress" out of desperation, the two I found were either shift or baby doll dresses, and we know I do better in a fit and flare. About to give up, I resorted to etsy, where I found the most adorable Aussie by the name of Rikki B, who made all my lobster dress dreams come true. 
This dress from Kissy Face via etsy was exactly what I imagined, and fulfilled all my lobster dress dreams! It's the perfect fit and flair shape and fits my waist like a glove. The length was pure perfection and the skirt was just full enough to be twirl-worthy without being over the top. The construction is to die for, hands-down one of the most well-made dresses I am lucky enough to own! And It has pockets!!!! Big, giant pockets that remain hidden and secret to the un-trained eye. After wearing this darling dress by Kissy Face, I never want to wear another dress. Truthfully, If i could live out my days in the stylings of miss Rikki B I would be the happiest and potentially best dress gal around. Thanks to Rikki, lobster is now not only my favorite food, but also my favorite dress, that I will continue to cherish for years to come. 

So when the time came to capture this crustacean creation, I had to turn to my fabulous photographer friend claire eliza. She is just beyond words. If you have any event worth documenting, you should turn to Claire, honestly, no one else can even compare! Thanks again, Claire!

so it's no secret that i'm head over heels for the lob dress, but the french man in my life also approves!

the cherry blossom dress will definitely be my next investment, but until then i'll just continue to fall more in love with my lobster dress. If you choose to pick one up for yourself (it will be the best decision you've made in a while), I hope it makes you as happy as it does me!
what do you think, are you lala loving my lobster dress? tell me, tell me!
