some kind of wonderful



Another entry in my ten years later project! And I actually still have the same dress that I wore in my post on April 8, 2011 ten years ago. I'm actually really surprised that this dress has stuck around this long because I've always hated the shoulders on it. They're real bunchy and make my shoulders look bigger than they are. It's SO pretty, with the giant sleeves and lace trim, and the fabric is a nice thick weave that hangs beautifully. But almost every time I put it on I end up changing because of those big shoulder pleats lol!

I really think at this point though that most of my wardrobe is here to stay. I used to do closet sales a few times a year and then I'd inevitably end up regretting selling 90% of the things I got rid of. I'm actually embarrassed to admit how many dresses I sold and then repurchased on poshmark years later! Honestly I know for a fact that if I let go of this dress because of the pleats I'd end up desperately searching for it again within the next six months LOL!
