The Soubrette Brunette: Nectarine Dream

I throw the word "love" around a lot. I never say it when I don't mean it, but I mean it frequently. I've always felt it was important to love freely and ...

As much as I love pastels, I'm powerless to resist a red-hot dress. And this one might honestly be the best one I've ever owned.
