Yet another item I can check off my unworns list...
I picked up this dress from TJ Maxx or Marshall's (can't remember which) many, many months ago and Sunday was its debut. Shameful. When I bought it, I had thought it would get so much wear...hello, it's a black and white dress. So I'm not exactly sure why it's had to wait so long to be worn. Maybe because it has slight cap-sleeves - the most unflattering sleeve length on me. Or because the neckline is too low to be worn without something underneath it. Or because it has the tiniest belt loops (not the kind that can be easily removed or covered up), and I have this thing about wearing a belt when there are loops. Which is why I typically just remove them. In this case, I wrapped a black tie from another dress around my waist and called it good enough...it didn't show up in the picture.
So as I was getting ready for church on Sunday I was thinking "spring layers" and this is what happened. Black is not so very springy, but yellow is! As are breezy fishnets without an extra layer of tights underneath. Yippee!
My closet was such a disaster that I couldn't find my plain, black pumps. Good thing too, because if I'd been able to find them I might not have tried the leopard print on, and I think they turned out much better. I did clean out that closet when I got home though...it was way past-due.
