The other morning while suffering from Can't Get Dressed Syndrome, I decided to play dress-up for a little while. I suppose deep down, I'm still a five year old in love with the idea of digging through trunks of my Mother's old dresses in the attic.
Only this time I dove into the back of my closet -- the real, actual back. I have a second clothing rod behind the main one, that I use for storing costumes and dresses I don't wear but won't get rid of (like my prom gown) and then these little numbers.
So this is my attempt at remixing my semi-formal one hit wonders:
My cousin's wedding, 2003 - Silk brocade halter
Dress Macys - Cardigan Kohls - Necklace Avon - Shoes Thrifted Payless - Hat Kohls - Bracelet The cavernous jewelry box
Easter, 2006 - Strapless turquoise dress
Dress Liz Claiborne - Cardigan H&M - Shoes Madden Girl - Belt Gap - Necklaces Kohls and Etsy - Ring Express
Christmas Eve 2002 and 2005 - Strapless velvet embossed iridescent taffeta
Dress Windsor - Blazer MaxMara - Shoes Simply Vera - Fedora Market in Italy - Necklace Made by Me - Belt Steve Madden
I'll admit, I had a lot of fun styling these dresses, but I still don't think I'll find an occasion to wear them.
