Dress: Gift — Camisole: Goodwill — Sandals and bracelet: Target — Earrings: Vendor on campus
Sigh. I’ve worn this dress countless times since my aunt gave it to me…seven years ago? eight?, and it’s starting to get a little threadbare. But I like it so much!
The panels at the bottom are so fun and swingy.
And it’s so easy to just throw on when I’m out of other ideas!
I have a few other dresses, but few of them are quite as easy as this one; most of them have thin straps which don’t seem quite work-appropriate, so more fiddle-farting is required to make a proper outfit.
The black-and-white pattern is so pretty and versatile, too! Really, the biggest pain about it is that it’s got kind of an awkward empire waist, which means I can’t dress it up with a belt.
But it works with so many of my other accessories that it doesn’t really matter! I’ll be sad when it finally comes to pieces, and I should really look for a couple more easy cotton dresses that will last me through an entire skin cycle.
(Incidentally–is that actually true, the seven-year thing? It sounds made-up, but it also sounds like the kind of made-up thing that I like pretending is true, like the existence of the Jersey devil, so.)
I’ve tried Goodwill, and have had a little luck, but mostly it’s a sea of old prom gowns and floor-length polyester, which isn’t quite what I’m looking for. What are your favorite resources for cute day dresses?
