I was having a poor me moment the other day about my wardrobe. It's the weather, it's the humidity and heat that's getting to me. I'm desperately missing my dresses and maxis. Feeling like I had nothing to wear to keep me cool and something that I haven't rehashed at lot, I headed for my stock room to see what I had in the the way of cotton frocks that would keep me happy.
Dress - Mega Church Garage Sale 2013
Purple Ballet Flats - retail
This 1980's seer sucker striped purple and white dress has me feeling a little bit 1950's diner waitress only thing that I'm missing is a name badge and a couple of ice cold sodas in hand.
I remember putting this dress in my stock room thinking it wasn't me at the time and that I would never wear it and I'd eventually sell it. It's funny how time sometimes changes your opinion towards a frock and it's style. I actually really quiet like this dress now. The dress could be easily be styled either way and really take on that 1950s or 1980's vibe either way. Perhaps I should make myself a diner name badge, or is that too much? At the end of the day this lovely cool dress is now staying in my wardrobe.
