aCullen 's Thoughts:

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.

Much more on my blog Time Enough For Drums.

wow! you make this floral dress look so edgy! you know, floral dress is something one associates with romance, but you make it something more of a rock thing, and that's what I love!

I completely understand how you feel, I feel guilty for not wearing some of my clothes as often too! you do look gorgeous though, I love how this has elements from different time periods without it tying to one era exclusively.
