I've been super productive the last couple of days and I'm trying to keep the momentum. I think dressing up is helping!
From your feedback on my last entry, it seems like dresses dominate most of your closets. Your comments motivated me to take a look at some of the lesser-worn dresses in my wardrobe and try to reinvigorate my daily wears with them. This is one of my Most Favorite Dresses, partly because of sentimental value. I bought it on a weekend walk through Bloomingdale's back in NYC almost two years ago. I tried it on and bought it because of its intricate lace design and girly-frothiness, even though it didn't pass the "where will I wear this?" test. And then...it lingered in my closet for a year, until I realized the perfect use for it: the after-wedding dress, the one you wear in transition from reception to honeymoon.
I think because of this I'll probably never get rid of it and will try many ways to keep it going in my closet. To be honest, I wasn't really feeling this particular combination because a) I was rushing out the door this morning and didn't really think things through and b) the sweater's color against the dress's bridal white color is irking me. I think next time I'll play with a chunky necklace or a dark blazer to add some contrast. Oh well, it's a learning process, isn't it?
What's your go-to outfit for when you're rushing out the door?
