The Red Polka Dot Dress

You guys have asked me so much about this dress. And well, the story is a little embarrassing but here it goes:

I've been eyeing this off red polka dot dress and had it on my Pinterest board for quite some time. When I finally decided to buy it, well the price was a little more than I wanted to pay. If you know me, you know Im into cheap fashion. Yes, I do get certain pieces every now and then that may be over $100 but the bulk of my wardrobe is not.


Being Latina and Living in Minnesota

We should start from the beginning and you are probably asking why in the world do I live in Minnesota? Well, about a year and eight months ago a week before my wedding I flew out here for an interview at my dream job. In comes Target. On my wedding day at exactly 1 am (because I could not sleep) I signed and accepted a letter that I knew it was going to change my life as I knew it. And boy it did!

Not only I was starting life as a married woman but also I was yet again starting from scratch at a new state (yup, this is my second time around). A state completely the oposite to what I had known at that point in my life, and basically I didn't know anything else about it besides IT IS COLD. I was terrorized, but the thought of finally working at my dream job and building my life with my husband at a new place seem pretty exciting at the time.
