My Outfit Monday: If at first you don't succeed...
You know when you have an item in your closet that you absolutely LOVED when you bought it a couple years ago but you look at it now and you're like, "Why did I ever....?"
Yea, that's how I felt about this dress for a long time.
I picked it up a while back from Revolve Clothing Exchange in St. Pete (don't remember the cost), wore it maybe half a dozen times, and then ... saw a picture of myself in it.
For whatever reason, the same frock I loved on the hanger suddenly seemed a little too tight when viewed through a camera lens. The shape was a little off. The pattern a little too busy. The ... oh heck. Ladies, you know what I mean.
Bottom line, it was not working anymore. And so, I tossed in THE PILE.
The pile, for those of you not familiar, is that storage bin/trash bag/free-form pile in the corner of a room made up of clothes you swear you will donate
, whenever you get around to it.
This dress lived in the pile for a long time. Months.
Until this morning.
POOF. Love at first try-on. Again.
Besides being a great neutral, closed toe option (which is a good addition to anyone's shoe collection), they also have a subtle but cool zipper detail on the back.
I love them. For now.
