alleviating buyer's remorse

dress: Forever 21
blazer: super old
top: Sway
cherry blossom necklace: [un]possible cuts
heels: Aerosoles

 Stripes again. I can't believe how many ways I have found to wear this dress! When I bought it I was definitely NOT thinking, "This lavender, high-low, striped, sheer, low cut dress is going to be super versatile." I bought it thinking it was pretty and feeling like I shouldn't buy it because I would never wear it. So, when I bought it I immediately set out to prove myself wrong and to alleviate my guilt at buying such a frivolous article of clothing, that I didn't need. I think I wore it three days in a row that first week and styled it differently each time.

Do you have something hanging in your closet, unloved and rarely worn? Does it evoke buyer's remorse each time you push it aside to reach for the boring, safe blouse/t-shirt/tank you wear constantly? Pull that item out and take a risk. You'll be glad you did.

  1. I am LOVING the stipes and the layering of them. You inspired my outfit today, where I wore a double herringbone (dress and tights) I played it safe with one color pallete though.
