the brown dress

dress: ABS / shoes: Payless / sunnies: Gucci / necklace: gift'd
Over the course of my  outfit documentation these past few years, I have noticed one trend in my closet - I love pretty dresses and tend to keep them for long periods of time.

I bought this one specifically to wear to our rehearsal dinner, many moons ago.

2002 07 Us!
And it's made it to many other special occasions.

I am happy to have found a way to make it work in my everyday life wardrobe these days.

That dress skims over your body really well, no wonder you hold onto it. It's a winner!

What a great remixable dress!

I love a dress with a history.
Have you heard Mary Chapin Carpenter's song, "This Shirt"

I think it's awesome how you are able to hang onto pieces. You've got such great classic taste that your stuff always looks fresh and fun.

I tend to hold on to pretty dresses for a long time, too. So that means at almost 50 years of age, I have some, er, classic pretty dresses, too.

I can see why you kept this one. It's beautiful and timeless.
