Since Christopher and I began dating, we've had a beloved, too-inside-to-explain joke about hippos. He got me a stuffed hippo for our first Valentine's day together; we went to the Chicago zoo expressly to see the hippos; whenever he goes away on trips, he draws me pictures of hippos with hearts around them (sounds weird when I write it down but it's actually really funny and sweet); and over the years, we've read so much about hippos that we both know a staggering amount of useless information about the animal (for example, did you know hippos are responsible for more human deaths than any other mammal?). So when I saw this dress at Ruche, Christopher begged me to get it. What could be more perfect than a pretty dress that also makes you laugh?
