This looks fantastic. I love the lace up back with the woven top. I love everything about this dress and now I want one.

Was it comfortable? o: It doesn't look like it was lined, so that's why I ask.

Mmmm CapriSuns. Reminds me of my packed lunches from elementary school. You did a really superb job. Looks like it fit you well.
