This fashion blog has really made me re-think my wardrobe and try to come up with different ways to wear the same piece of clothing, sometimes its really easy like with jeans or tops, but its dresses I struggle with the most. Us women are always on the hunt for a new dress even though we have 20 hanging in our closets that we’ve only had one once or twice. We fear that we might run into the same people or better yet… what if someone tags me on Facebook in the same dress, oh no! This is why when shopping for a new dress I always consider two things, how many times am I going to wear this dress and how many different ways can I wear the dress. This dress was a tricky one for me, and although I really haven’t switched up the look that much for only $55 I thought it was a great buy either way. I’ve had it for a year now and have already worn this same dress 3 ways and I know I’ll be wearing it again this summer.
Please tell me what you look for when buying a dress, do you try to get more than one use out of it, do you spend a lot on your dresses or would you rather buy a skirt and shirt that way you can mix it up more/ wear it more than once and in different ways? With so many options out there now the possibilities are endless!
