  1. such a cute dress!!!

  2. “die hard shopper” this does not even begin to describe how Annie shops!!

  3. She is such an unabashed girly girl! Very cute. 🙂

  4. Aliyah, I couldn’t express in such a short piece what a die hard shopper Annie is. She would put me to shame!!! Non-stop 12 hour binges. If she wants it, she will find it. Whether online, across the border or in some obscure store you’ve never heard of. And she will also keep her friends in mind (thank u!) and pickup goodies she thinks you will like. Like your very own personal stylist. I luv my Annie.

  5. Now that’s definitely Annie! <3

  6. You look gorgeous~! woohoo~! I’m loving it~!
