Peony Garden

Peony Bouquet, Mother's Day Necklace, and Peony Photo Print from
    I love peonies.  I wish I had a garden full of them.  This Peony Garden dress by Maeve caught my eye when it came out a few years ago.  I always have to wait for Anthro dresses to hit the second hand shops before I can afford them, but this one even went on sale to a price that I could afford first hand.  The thing that held me back was the mixed reviews.  A lot of buyers didn't care for the fabric and in the end, their grumbles were enough to convince me not to buy it.  But, I didn't forget it.  I watched the resale sites and saw it pop up occasionally for around $45-$60.  It turned up on thredUp a few days ago for only $27 so I decided to put all those reviewers' complaints aside and buy the dress.  I'm really happy with it and I wish I hadn't waited.  It is the perfect dress for Easter morning, a wedding, or a spring brunch.  I added this denim jacket to create a more casual look.  The denim goes well with the purples and blues and the mint accents really bring out the purple too.  I know this dress is going to get a lot of wear.
