I'm a Sucker for Pockets

I love dresses with pockets. Seriously love. I wish more companies made dresses with pockets. Men's clothing is both rarely without pockets and their pockets are usually double the size of ours. This is not fair ladies, not fair at all.

The pattern of this dress always makes me smile which is good because every time I wear it I think of the unpleasant circumstances under which I bought it. I was crying hysterically after a doctor's appointment, convinced that the lump in my breast was cancer. I needed to calm down before heading back to work so I decided to shop. I did not have cancer or anything even close to approximating cancer, so really I should start looking at this dress as the "I don't have breast cancer" dress. That'd be a much better association.

The dress is from Forever 21 and it's a regular size large - their stuff can be very stretchy, I recommend always trying their stuff on, and the cardigan is from Banana Republic. The necklace is from H&M and the shoes I picked up on the street in Bandra, which is a hip neighborhood in Mumbai. I can't wait to show you the other pair of shoes I bought that night - they're so cool!
