Darn you Pinterest!

I love Pinterest.  I really do.  I love going on there and getting recipes, home decorating hints, and style ideas.  I, like most people who have a Pinterest account, have found myself losing an hour or two of my life as I click through various pins.

But I do have a few issues with Pinterest.  The first is when I find something that I absolutely adore.  Such as this:

And this:

And then I discover that I can't have them.

Oh how I coveted both of these when I saw them pinned on someone else's board.  I finally traced them back to their sources and discovered both were no longer available.  That is a bummer!

I now make sure that when I pin something, that I first trace it back to its original source.  I also try to include in my comments if it is no longer available.  My goal is to either make it easier for someone who wants to purchase it, to find it.  My second goal is to prevent someone the same disappointment I have experienced when I discover a pin is so old that the item is no longer for sale.

But yesterday, I found something even more frustrating.  I found a dress that is absolutely stunning.  Don't believe me?  See for yourself.
I traced this back to Cape Cod Collegiate on tumblr.  It took me almost an hour to scroll through all the posts and find this beauty only to be disappointed to discover it was lifted from a second tumblr.  After hours trying to scroll through that second tumblr, mango-moods, I finally cried "uncle".  In addition to be disappointed in not finding the dress, I am now obsessed with trying to figure out who in their right mind would bother with a tumblr blog.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason to such a blog, and no organization.

But I digress from the dress.  Can anyone out there help me?  Have you ever seen this dress before and know the source?
