An Oldie

I've had this dress for about 5 years. It's one of those dresses that I'll probably keep forever because it literally is so easy to wear. Slap a belt on it, regardless of my size, and I'm good to go.

{Dress: Forever 21 (old), Denim Jacket: Nordstrom (old), Belt: H&M, Rain Boots: Hunters, Socks: H&M, Bracelets: David Yurman, Forever 21, Alex and Ani}

The way this dress is cut, it actually makes my belly look huge. Or maybe my belly really does look like that... since I officially can't see my feet when I'm standing anymore. Who needs to see their feet anyway. That's what mirrors are for, right?

Side note: it was a spectacularly warm day when I took these pictures. So don't worry, I wasn't freezing!

You are honestly so cute! I loved reading what you said about seeing your feet haha. That's so funny! And you know you've reached a milestone if you can't see your feet.

And the pieces you can always wear regardless are the best! That dress looks so good with that denim jacket and those pretty Hunter's. Glad it was warm and you weren't freezing! Hope you've been feeling better, Yi-chia!

I am so glad to know I am not the only one who has old dresses they refuse to get rid of. I have sentimental reasons behind mine but they also are soooo forgiving!

This is why I have so much trouble getting rid of my clothes...because jewels like this dress can be worn, like you said...for FIVE years!! Love the Hunters with this and of course your belly...and you are so right...who needs to see feet when we have mirrors!! Ha! Looking good girl....real good!

Frannie Pantz said...

I think it is the cut of the dress. I have one in a similar cut and the day I wore it everyone thought I was like 8 months pregnant!!! I do think it looks adorable though and by comparison to me (huge, but not as far along), you still look tiny to me. I love that you are sporting the bare legs too!

Susannah said...
