I bought this floor-length dress over 14 years ago from Hubba Hubba in Chicago. And I've never worn it. I bought it because I fell in love with how romantic it was... and (at the time) it fit me. And I hoped I'd have some place to wear it. It has hung in my closet(s) through the years and fell victim to one leaky roof in my parents' home, since discolored at the bottom, along with being a size small (like, size 0 small), tags still attached, I will never wear this dress. But it still makes my heart happy.
I completely forgot in the hall closet I had this ivory & black dress that I purchased a few weeks ago when we went to the farmer's market. I stopped into a boutique on the square (Ella's Bella) and found it for half-off. The photo doesn't really show off the cool pleats and flowy-ness of the dress.
I was in dire need of replacing my go-to dress of all time from Anthropologie and this one fit like a dream, has a fun belt, it hits just below the knee with black edging on the slip. I originally got it with the intent of wearing to a wine tasting event we were supposed to go to next month, but now we're not going. I'm sure I can wear it to the next evening party no matter what season. (I'll probably throw a black shawl or scarf over my shoulders in cooler months.)
