Dress:  Anthropologie.  Shirt and beads:  Target.
Seychelles heels.  Vivi Dot Peach and Lace Lexington Necklace.

I have this theory about dresses.  It goes like this:

They should NOT be worn only for special occasions.

Otherwise, what a waste of both money and a perfectly lovely article of clothing.
Case in point:  This dress came from Anthro around 2005 (or '06? i don't remember.) for a wedding I was attending that summer.

I love it, and if I were to only wait to pull it out of my closet for weddings, that would be sad.
Partly because I would be pictured in the same outfit for every wedding I went to.  Awkward.
But the main reason is this:  
I spent good moneys on this dress, 
it makes me feel pretty, 
and gosh-darn-it I'm going to wear it today because I feel like it. 

So there.
Don't try to stop me.

PS I found my bangs again.  
Aren't you proud of me? 


  1. I feel the same way! I always 'dumb' down some of my designates wedding/dinner date dresses for work and everyday! Love what you did with this one and loving the specs!


  2. True dat, we shouldn't wait for special occasions to wear our nicer clothes! They deserve better :)

    I love the way you styled the top and this color palette is fabulous on you my dear!

  3. Your bangs were the first thing I thought of when I saw your pictures! LOL You look gorgeous, and I love your theory about dresses. They make you feel pretty, gosh darnit. ;)
