I love clothes that I can still remember the day I bought them. This dress is the best dress and I’ve had it for years. One summer I wore it so much my mother exclaimed, “Do you own any other clothes?!” But I just love it! I was with my bff Mindy, super hungover after St. Patty’s Day in St. Louis, and we were shopping in the Galleria at Urban Outfitters. I was feeling TERRIBLE and Mindy grabs this very dress and says, “You should try this on, it will look great on you.” I was doubtful, mainly because I felt like I was lacking the necessary skills to take off my clothes without getting dizzy. Kitties: the sky parted that day. When I put this dress on, my hangover vanished and I gaped in the mirror. The stripes! The cute open back (sorry, you can’t see it)! The little gold buttons! Even today, about 5 years later, I slipped it on and felt instantly better about every little thing there is.
What do you start with when putting together an outfit? Usually I’m normal and start with the main piece, like this dress, but today I started with this belt. I’ve been on the hunt for thicker belts since I have so many skinny ones, and lo and behold this one I uncovered in my own belt drawer. Win win!
