Have you ever had the experience of walking into a shop full of overwhelmingly cute things? This dress was a treasure picked up from Blutsgeschwister, a German designer that I discovered in Berlin. They have a shop located in the Bikini Berlin Mall which specializes in hand-made and designer stores. Blutgeschwister is packed with adorable clothing that features bold colors and unique prints that I fell in love with immediately. This dress costs a little more than I would normally be willing to pay on an item of clothing but I decided to spring for it as a souvenir from Germany and because I felt so cute wearing it that I didn't want to take it off in the changing room.
Because it is a summer dress I ended up paying thirty Euros less in buying it. Shopping for items out of season is a great way to save-look for winter coats and stockings in the spring and buy spring dresses and shorts in the autumn. You can put things in storage and thank yourself later.
