I realized I haven’t worn this dress since last fall. That means almost an entire year. It’s crazy to think one can have a wardrobe so large they can go an entire year without wearing an item of clothing. When I left Minneapolis in May, I donated and sold a ton of clothes, and this dress almost went with those items. I’m glad I kept it! The colors are very lively and bright, and I never thought before to give it a little more of a grungy feel. I really do like grunge-inspired outfits I see on various street style sites, but I’ve learned something about myself when wearing grungesque ensembles: I have to have some vintage sweetheart in there somewhere! It downplays the hardness a bit and makes the trend more accessible to me, somehow. Thus, my 1940s hat and golden watch necklace. I really love how this all came together. It was quite spontaneous.
