Are you one of those people with overflowing drawers and stuffed closets in your home yet you stomp your foot in anger and shout, "I have nothing to wear!" I know I'm not the only one. :) I think my husband would classify me as a hoarder with clothes. I have our main closest, plus a dresser and part of the guest room's closet... Does that make me a hoarder?? I'm just a girl who loves clothes! And the worst part is every few months I'll get rid of garbage bags full of items and yet everything is still sooo stuffed.
Well, I gave myself a little challenge last week. I decided I need to start wearing those dresses that I "had to have" that are currently being squished together in the guest room's closet. I need to let them breathe a little! Problem is, I get so paranoid that my dresses are "too fancy for work". However, they really aren't all that fancy! Our office is just more on the "casual" business side.
So, I see my Victoria's Secret black convertible dress peeking out. I bought this dress on sale (but not TOO on sale.. it was still pricey) because I figured you are getting about 10 dresses for the price of one! I vowed to myself that I would wear this dress ALL.THE.TIME. Sadly that vow only lasted a day..? Ok.. A few days. Still not long enough to justify. :)
I can count on one hand how many times I actually wore this. Which is a bummer because it's super comfy and so fun.
I pulled it out and searched youtube for a quick reminder of how to make this dress work, and wore it.
I'm pleased with the results! It was such a rainy day so I felt this was so low maintenance and I didn't need to worry so much if this dress got wet. Being so black though, and so gloomy outside, I put one of my flowers and clipped them on to the sash for a dash of happiness.
I'm determined to wear this dress AT LEAST once a month from now on. I truly love it and it's so fun to change up the look. Black is so basic and can be switched up more than the styles of the dress!
