Nothing cures a case of the Mondays like a fresh bouquet of flowers…
And if that doesn’t work out, you can always try wearing a floral print.
I bought this dress almost 10 years ago, which I think makes it officially vintage now! I remember feeling so sophisticated every time I wore it, and it was my go-to outfit for dressy summer events in college. I am by no means as small as I was 10 years ago, but luckily the wrap style is forgiving. A strategically placed safety pin is all it took to transport me back in time (without flashing anyone).
I am also by no means a hoarder. In fact, I routinely go through my closet and get rid of pieces that I haven’t worn in ages or that no longer reflect my personal style. But somehow, this dress always winds up making the cut. I can’t say that about a lot of my other items.
And what about you guys? Do you tend to keep items for years or do you prefer to purge and restock each season? What’s a favorite piece in your wardrobe that you’ve been rocking for 5 years or more?
