A dress with pockets is a major plus! I got this dress while Josh and I were on our trip through California at an awesome shop in North Park, San Diego called Mimi & Red. When I tried it on in the store Josh was making fun of me saying I look like the Miami Dolphins.. whatever ahah.. men! I loved it right away, it was purchased immediately. Later to find out it had pockets in it, score! Any dress with pockets is a major plus, so convenient for your phone, keys and in my case extra bobby pins that I will eventually loose. With fall in the air I paired it with a floppy hat for a night of sushi!
