Got My Mind Set On You

Today's dress is definitely unique in nature. I purchased it in Hungary when I was there in 2008 with some some of my grad school classmates on a study abroad. We were gone for two weeks: the first week was spent in the Czech Republic (Prague), and the second week in Hungary.

My friend Tiffany and I walked around Budapest and found an outdoor festival on the street with tons of booths set up with artwork, purses, clothing, trinkets and much more. It reminded me of the Dogwood Festival here in Atlanta. Tiffany bought this cool purse with all these zippers on it, and I bought this dress. The label reads "Camou". I love it because I don't think you will find anything like it here in the U.S., and it's insanely comfortable. The cotton is so soft!

Of course, every time I wear this dress, I also think of that trip. What an adventure, though I was very glad to come home. I'm definitely an American. I like space -- lots of space! -- cold drinks with ice and easy Internet connections.

Here's one of my favorite pictures from the trip, taken in Prague the night we went to the opera. Even back then I was a fashionista (wearing Betsey Johnson):
