WIW - A Dress Worthy of an Urban Warrior Princess...AYEEEE YA-YA-YA-YA

Sorry I'm eating and food makes me hyper. :D

I looooooooove this dress! I found it last year at Nordstrom Rack and i swear the heavens parted and the angels sang. I felt like everything about it was 100% "me" AND i could afford it! Lovely day!

It was also the day when i heard a voice saying behind me, "Do NOT look at the shirts. You have enough shirts. DO. NOT. LOOK". Which at first I thought was God having an impromptu intervention with me but it actually turned out to be a lady. Completely by herself. I really wanted to be friends with her.

Thanks for looking!

    Ahahaha! Awesome story - God works in mysterious ways, alright.

    Love love love that dress, and the fringe earrings are perfect with it.

  • goldenpig replied 8 years ago

    Wow, this really is YOU! I love the pink dress with lace overlay and black boots and biker jacket! You pull this off like no other! Too bad your hair isn't still pink!

    I've had those moments with dresses before--isn't it the best feeling when your dress destiny is fulfilled?

  • annagybe replied 8 years ago

    That dress is so you!

  • merwoman replied 8 years ago

    Made for you! Love the "nailhead" type detail in the dress and how you've echoed that in your earrings and bracelets. I do think I see in pic 4 that the heavens have indeed parted and a ray of light (pink) is breaking through. Is that the hallelujah chorus I hear?

    It is perfectly you and perfectly fab.

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    OMG, Nicole! You are hilarious as well as beautiful??? The world is not always fair.

    But you deserve this dress. It is SO great on you!!!! And I hope your shopping friend finds a place in fashion heaven, too.

    Ha! You are so fun, I can't stand it! Perfect dress for you - you look amazing as always.

    Nicole, this is an amazing dress with an amazing story and I am so happy the universe gave you a big UWP *kiss* in Nordstrom Rack and that you also got to overhear another woman *dealing* with her own fashion issues that we can all appreciate! You look beautiful and I love your *call* and can here it all the way in Southern California! ;)

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    KILLER from top to toe! Love the conversation that you had in your head.

    I just love the way you pose. ADORABLE.

  • velvetychocolate replied 8 years ago

    This dress is spectacular on you!

  • Amy replied 8 years ago

    Wow, Nicole! This knocks my socks off :)

  • Sara L. replied 8 years ago

    Great dress! I think it looks very 'you'. I like how you kept your accessories fairly simple to let the dress stand out.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    SPEECHLESS ( in a good way)!

  • ironkurtin replied 8 years ago

    I only ever hear half a conversation people have on their cellphones, most of which make me want to call my husband and tell him how good he has it.

    Great dress!

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    So fab!

  • Lulu replied 8 years ago

    Not sure that God is a fashionista at heart, but most definitely the stars were in perfect alignment when you spotted that dress!

  • sarah replied 8 years ago

    Nicole - studs, purple, mini - you're right, it is SO you, and you wear it so incredibly well.

    You're hilarious.

  • Scarlet replied 8 years ago

    Ridiculous good. Love your story.

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Fab dress. It was made for you.

  • fashionista replied 8 years ago

    Wow that color is so beautiful on your skin. Lovely!!! I also love your curls.

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    Awesome dress! I love it. I read it as Gothic Boho. Not Goth. But Gothic in a 70s sense, as in Led Zeppellin Houses of the Holy/Alistair Crowley typic of Gothic feel.

    (If that makes any sense at all.)

  • Irene replied 8 years ago

    That dress has your name written all over :)

  • Claudia replied 8 years ago

    Perfectly beautiful. Gorgeous on you!

  • Janet replied 8 years ago

    Perfect dress on you! You crack me up -- I want to go shopping with you!

  • replied 8 years ago

    Oh, what a fabulous and perfect dress for you!!!! Hooray!!!!

  • modgrl replied 8 years ago

    Love it!! And the boots!! And earrings! Just great all together.

  • nicoleb replied 8 years ago

    Thanks ladies! I"m glad we all agree this dress and me were meant to be. :D

    Janet - Yes! I would love to have you along!

    CocoLion - Love your description! Thanks!

    Sara L. - Thanks! I tried to reign it in a little. ;)

    Angie - haha thanks. I always feel a little awkward in front of the camera. Especially if there's someone behind it. @_@

    Vicki - lol awesome! And it's good to know you're not alone isn't it? XD

    Suz - pfft Suz you silly. I think you are beautiful inside and out so i'd say the universe has been very fair to you. :*

    merwoman - isn't that streak of light funny? I did not do that on purpose but i had to leave it in there. XD

  • Jonesy replied 8 years ago

    Very cool! I don't think I've seen a dress like that before--it looks really fab and suits you so well. Love the studs!

  • Sylvie replied 8 years ago
