The only way this dress is different from my old one is it doesn't zip. It buttons. Fine if you are the 12 year old it is marketed for since your mother is likely still helping you in the mornings, but I guess, that is the sucky part about shopping in children's sections? I wear it with 3 OMR ballet flats from Rameez, Susen handbag 12 OMR, 2 OMR manicure, floral brooches that came with the dress that I wear in my hair, and jewelry that is my own, via my sister's belated christmas/eid present to me. We have the same snake ring. That's soooo us.
