So much for #snowpocalypse2015!

2 feet turned into 7 inches (sounds like something out of Alice in Wonderland).


On a side note, I did not get a snow day as expected. I was so peeved this morning. I drove to work, and the only company I had during my commute were a few snow plowers! This is what makes me upset sometimes. The company I work for has an old fashioned mentality that incurred costs trump your quality of life. Sure, on paper they have decent benefits, but what's the point if the company calls in all its employees to work on a day where streets have not been cleared cleanly, and it's still snowing! I wasn't even able to shovel my driveway before going to work so when I get home, the snow will have compacted and turned into hair ice :\

Anyway, like I said yesterday, I'm feeling a bit under the weather. I'm not sure if it's strep? Has anyone ever had it? Whenever I swallow, it feels like something is blocking my throat. If it persists, I'll have to take a day off and go to the doctor :X

Onto the post: I pulled up some photos from my trip to LA that I never got around to posting. This is one of my favorite dresses. For a retailer known for fast fashion, this dress was made impeccably. The details such as the pleating in the dress, the matching belt, and the hidden pockets just screamed 'Yvonne!'. I stalked it for months on Asos, because I couldn't pull the trigger with its hefty price tag. I waited, saw it go out of stock then come back in stock. My heart dropped multiple times over the span of a few weeks each time the dress went out of stock. Finally, the dress came back while a coupon code was available. It was a size too small, but I didn't care. I would find a way to fit, and I did! How are you guys? Did you get a snow day??
