We all have big dreams and seemingly insignificantÂ peroÂ important dreams. One ofÂ the latter for us was to one day find a dress like the pink velour one Hallie wore in “My Date with the President’s Daughter”â€”the one dramatically revealed at minute 7 of this YouTube clip from the movie. After years of passively searching, we finally found it (albeit a more hipster tunic version but perfect nonetheless)! The long-awaited dress was waiting for us inside of the Hyden Yoo Boutique on Abbot Kinney where we came across it last SaturdayÂ while shopping with our friendÂ Sarah.Â Finding this dressÂ was one small part of a five day-long marathon ofÂ amazingÂ juju that carried us through our recent Los Angeles trip (of which you will hear more aboutÂ on ThankYouMiami.comÂ next week) because it turns out it is impossible to find Hyden Yoo’s women collection anywhere on the internets.
Because this outfit was a miracle a long time in the making, we naturally bumped all other OOTDs planned for Sunday BrunchÂ to make room for this fabulous dress. So, on Sunday, armed withÂ our new dress, our favorite sunnies, and our favorite ASKA Collection booties (you may remember them from our last #ThankYouMiami for FashionÂ post because we love them so much we wear them everyday) we headed to The Rockefeller in Manhattan Beach with our sister Lucy and her friends. The tunic cutÂ was perfect for brunchingâ€”ergo, extremely applicable to Miami lifeâ€”because it allowed our bellies to expand forÂ unlimited mimosas, a massive plate of chilaquiles, zucchini fries, and donut holesÂ and still looked flattering. And, afterward when we went on a post-brunch buzz drive downÂ the California coast blasting Mariah Carey’s “Emotions” with the windows down,Â it turned out to be the prettiest, most comfortable outfitÂ for that too. #winning.
