I am graduating from college on May 5th, and I have been looking for the perfect dress, but I have not had any luck. I want something young, not frumpy, and I am open to any style really and pretty much any color - except nude, because it will just make me look like a ghost, but I REALLY like blue! I live in Florida, so it will be very hot, so something that is cool would be great. Graduation day feels like it is rapidly approaching, so I hope you all can help so I have one less thing to stress about. I am usually a size 4. Thanks!!!!!"

Mitchy here: I'd be happy to never put on another pair of pants. What this means for you is that I love all kinds of dress shopping - especially cute patterned dresses and party dresses. I also love colorful apparel and jewelry as well as vintage-styled home decor. Other things I don't usually put on resumes: expert cat wrangler, road tripper, and connoisseur of bad movies.
