This dress is a good example of what I feel I’ve learned to avoid following my shopping ban. I bought it back in March and I’ve only worn it once before. It is 2-3 sizes too big for me, is conspicuous (not that that is always bad) and has ruffles. But it was $7 on the sale rack.
I’ve racked my brain trying to think of other ways to style it and this was all I could come up with. It’s not bad but it’s not a favourite. I definitely don’t get excited to see it in my wardrobe and I think that might be the clincher. Every time I look at it hanging there I think, “There’s that dress that I bought because it was on sale even though it’s way too big and I never wear it”. And I feel a little silly. And almost a little guilty.
So I’m giving it to Goodwill. You can tell that Spring is around the corner because I am itching to clear things out. Clear and clean and start a fresh.
