It’s no secret that I love to shop; and shopping for a cause always grabs my attention. Such was the case a while ago when a friend of mine invited me to shop at an event where a portion of the sales went to the MS Society. I had never set foot in the Zimmerman store. I always picture their flowy dresses and shirts on more ethereal types. But I was in for a pleasant surprise when I came upon a plethora of items that did suit me. I had to whittle my purchases down and ended up with this cute dress that I can also layer with a pretty white blouse when the temperatures start to cool. Snakeskin is very on trend at the moment. It seems to be everywhere. You will recall that I took a t-shirt dress in this print on my recent trip to Europe. I cannot seem to get away from these low block heel sling backs by Marni. I have worn them over and over agin all season long. I find a low block heel and slingback are the perfect combo for keeping my feet comfy.
I was having a day with my hair, so I slicked it back into a pony and added a pretty scarf in these subtle colors that seemed to enhance the print of the dress, rather than fight with it.
I am so happy to have purchased this dress and happier still, that the proceeds went to such a worthy cause. Like I always say, shopping and philanthropy are a very suitable match!
