Dress: Rebecca Taylor // Bangles: Cartier, Kenneth Jay Lane and Jade(from China) // Ring: David Yurman I scream, you scream, we all scream for it but I definitely scream the loudest for it…or the voice inside my head does. If you ever went to Golden Corall and saw the little girl dipping her soft serve directly into the container of sprinkles, her name was Mallory and that wasn’t her first cone. The struggle.
