3x6 MY FAVOURITE DRESS
I haven't had a favourite dress for a long time. In fact, I haven't worn that many dresses in the past couple years, but now I'm on a definite dress/skirt kick! They're all I want to wear. Lately, I've been a fan of simple, classic styles that I believe will stand the test of time.
A few years ago, I went through a romantic floral dress phase - one of my favourite phases - nevertheless, my personal style has changed since. I can still appreciate a pretty dress with flowers, but the possibility of me wearing one is pretty slim. (Although, pairing it with a leather or jean jacket + boots might just be my extended style.)
I found this particular black piece on a sale rack in Zara, the day after finding out my dissertation marks. I was about to leave the store when I had the idea to take a quick look at the dresses. The tag said £30, a little too much still, but I thought I'd treat myself for my accomplishments. I took it to the register only to find out it got marked down to £12. Happy dance! I'm thanking the sales assistants who forgot to stick the right price on the tags, otherwise I'm sure somebody would have snapped it up before me.
Originally, I got it as my nice, fancy LBD that I'd wear to fancy occasions. You know, like a mini fancy capsule wardrobe. But then I thought, hey, how many fancy things do I go to - very little - so I put it in the spring capsule. I love wearing it. The fit is oh-so-great and the open sleeves are such a beautiful vintage touch. It's also a good length, any shorter would feel too short.
I styled it real simple this time, (on second thought, the tights could have been a little thinner), because I wanted you to be able to see the cut and the lovely sleeves, but I have a few other outfits in mind too. Yes, you will definitely see this dress again. I'm also wearing a white headband (so 2010) that I realise is kind of hard to spot in the photos, but I had to tell you because, you know, it matches my shoes and displays my awesome styling skills ;-).
