A special occasion (Olivia's baptism) called for something more fancy and formal than what I usually wear. I had somes shoes to choose from (a shoe hoarder collector's advantage), but no dress to wear. In my opinion, it had to be modest in cut and style, and of course just as importantly it had to be easy to move in with a baby. Colour wise it shouldn't be white as to not compete with Olivia, and preferably something flattering and weather appropriate. With such criteria in mind, I thought this floral sheath dress would work after browsing and reading reviews on Forever 21's online store - long story short - with the picture on my phone, I walked into the store, spotted it, tried it on, and bought it. 

The long story of course involved popping into various other stores and trying on plenty of other dresses of different styles and what not, but let's pretend that I'm a savvier shopper and that the whole ordeal only took 5 minutes.
