I wore this on Sunday to head out into the suburbs for a family birthday party. I'm so used to city life that it felt weird to stand in the middle of the street for photos without having to worry about cars running me over!
I've owned this dress for several years but have only worn it a few times. It's a style that doesn't look very good unless it has a layer underneath, so I can really only wear it in winter. One of my goals this year is to utilize my closet better, so I've been trying to avoid buying many new pieces and have instead been revisiting old clothes and learning to love them again. I always get on a mini high when I buy something new. It's like falling in love - you feel all fluttery and excited when you wear it for a while, and then pretty soon it just becomes normal like everything else. I used to love this dress, and then it fell to the wayside when I bought my next new piece of clothing. So here's to old clothes (I'm raising my imaginary glass) and making them into new loves again!
