When I first saw this dress, it was too expensive for me. I was broke. But I wanted it. I loved it. I thought about it later. I did that thing where I looked it up online, just to see it again. I once even said to Nathan “Oh Nathan, this dress would be so pretty on me”, which sounds pretty vain, but was more a testament to the dress than me. But I moved on…
Haha, no I didn’t. But I did get it on clearance which was thrilling, because I wanted it so badly and because, well, clearance is always exciting!
The clearance rack had black, grey and this nude in my size. And of course my instinct was to get them all, but I talked myself down to one. I already have a grey dress in a similar, ethereal style. And black is not a challenge. So I went with the nude. I was really proud of myself for getting just the one, because one dress on clearance is a bargain. 3 dresses on clearance would have been over spending. (For me, I’m not here to say what is overspending for you! Xoxo)
I wore this to Toastmasters and got some compliments from the older-than-me crowd, which always makes me feel pleased as punch, because my style, I feel skews a bit young. (So does a lot of yours, even those of you much older than me! I like us that way!)
I think this dress has LOTS of styling possibilities and I can’t wait to explore!
