Since September, I have had my heart set on owning the Self-Portrait Azaelea dress. If like me, you follow hundreds of fashion bloggers, you will probably recognise it. The dress came out a while ago and used to be all over Instagram.

For months, I have searched every Nordstrom I have come across head-to-toe for it but I could never find it in red. As soon as I saw the 3D version, I had to refrain from screaming. Trends change so quickly so I try not to ‘break the bank’ on designer clothes but this is one purchase I don’t think I’ll ever regret. It is honestly the most comfortable dress I own and as lame as it sounds, I feel like a princess when I’m wearing it. Even though it’s not at all practical for Seattle weather, I intend to wear it as much as I possibly can this summer (and every other summer after that FOREVER).
