dressing up during the day

I don’t know about you guys, but I find that unless I’m doing a night out with the girls, going to an event or to dinner, I don’t typically reach for my cocktail attire.

And now this normally wouldn’t be anything noteworthy if it weren’t for the fact that I have a LOT of dressy/evening attire. A whole fucking rack full.

I faced this fact recently and was sort of alarmed by exactly how many dresses I’ve bought for a night out/event that I either haven’t worn or have only worn once. Just one after another.
A fucking line-up of perfectly good, still-fitting, attention-grabbing, badass shit.

WHY have I not worn these/these again??

Yep. Would it be functional for my Saturday/Sunday afternoon? Depending on how short it was but, probably.

So what’s the fucking hold-up then?

  1. Yup, what she said. It’s like using your fine china to eat on non-fancy occasions too.

    Also, can we trade legs? Yours are so much longer. I bet you can reach all the shelves at the grocery store.

    1. Aww thanks Marta!!
      You’re so sweet, 🙂 🙂

      I just realized that if I don’t start engaging them in my normal life, I may not ever wear them again.
      And that’s a sad, sad thought 🙂

  2. I think one of the many misconceptions of those who are discovering or who just claim to not be that into fashion is that you have to have an event to look good or “Dress Up” so to speak. It’s always appropriate to be beautiful and let me just say, lest all the fellas in the world be made at me for missing my opportunity, LOL, you are ASTONISHING! LoL Those hips & my favorite color are a deadly combination! But I digress! Never OVER do it, but DEFINITELY do it! LoL Now, I’m off to find your Instagram 😉

Go on, get it out..
