Lanterns Gigi

Hello there! So far it's been a scorching hot week here; yesterday it reached 90, and was humid. Our power even went out for forty-five minutes last night, but luckily it came back on before we went to bed, or else I don't know how we would've been able to sleep without a/c/! A couple minutes after the power went out, I was already uncomfortably hot. 
I'm excited to go to the rockabilly show on Thursday with Bob, only two days away now (it's also the first day of summer, and our fourth wedding anniversary)! Tomorrow night I'll be going to Panera for dinner with Bob, my dad, and grandmother. 
Fingers crossed that Bob and I are going to Asbury Park for the day on Saturday. He knows I really want go, but he hasn't let me know yet if that's what we'll be doing.
In the pictures below I'm wearing a beautiful Retrospec'd Gigi dress that I got on sale recently, and on top of it, I used a 20% off discount code, so I got it for a really great price! 
I had liked this print for a long time, too. I love beautiful Asian inspired prints, and Asian lanterns are no exception. 
I ordered the dress in my size, but after I placed the order, Retrospec'd contacted me to let m know they actually were sold out in my size. They offered me the next size up, and I took it, knowing the dress would definitely be big on me, and it is really big in the waist. So, I have to wear it belted, and that does help a lot. Since I love red dresses, it's a plus that this dress has a nice red background. 
If you order directly from the Retrospec'd website, which I don't do much, the shipping is expensive; it's $19, but it does come insanely fast. It comes to me within three days of it being shipped, all the way from Australia! When I order from PUG or Unique Vintage, which are located in California, it takes 7-8 days. What a difference!
I've been wearing this Remix Vintage Shoes purple sandals A LOT, since I received them. 
They are VERY comfortable, and that shade of purple just can't be beat.
