A once-a-year dress

The last time I wore this dress was more than a year ago (here). I know people always say that you should have a closet full of clothes you wear all the time, but I think there's something fun about having a lot of dresses that I only wear a few times a year. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm easily bored - if I only had five dresses, I'd hate them all pretty quickly. Instead, I have about thirty, and still feel pretty excited to wear all of them.

Turtleneck: Kohl's
Dress: Sweet Jayne
Coat: purchased in China
Boots: Jessica Simpson from Macy's
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Earrings: free from my aunt
Necklace: Evidence Jewelry, won in a giveaway


  1. That dress is definitely keep worthy even if you do only wear it once year!

  2. I definitely have clothes like that - while I love having things I can wear a lot, sometimes you just need those special pieces who only come out once in a while.

  3. What a great dress! I absolutely feel the same way. There are a lot of pieces in my closet for those "I'm bored" days. Nothing wrong with that!

  4. Well everything I was going to say has about already been said. :o) So anyways, glad you decided to wear your dress this year (and share with us). You look very nice in those colors!

  5. That's an especially outstanding dress, and I love the colour of your coat too. I'm with you on enjoying having lots of dresses!

  6. I love your dress and your blue coat is the perfect coverup! I agree, I love having many dresses as then I never get bored! Fashion is fun!


  7. I'm like you - I have SO many dresses, but I really like the variety. It's always exciting and it's a long time before I get tired of one.

    I like the print of the dress - cute!

  8. That's such a great dress! My justification for a great quantity of dresses is that my students remember things - "Didn't you wear that dress last week???"

  9. I love the color of that coat. Perfect with your gorgeous hair color.
