With spring on it’s way and a trip to California in my near future, I’ve been dusting off my spring and summer clothes from last year. Some items I’ll wear again, some will be given away and a few will be repurposed into something else.
Here are some of the highlights from the dress bin:
This dress is a keeper, although I have about an inch of extra girth that prevents the side zipper from doing up all the way to the top. Still, I’m determined to wear this dress in a few months.
I love the print. I’ve got to lose that inch.
I bought this dress at T.J. Maxx last spring and it still has the tags attached. When I tried it on, I realized why. There’s not much fabric in the boobular region.
I vaguely remember my rational in the dressing room being that I’d be wearing a cardigan over it. At work, the dress code prohibits sundresses, plus the air conditioning system keeps my cubicle like a meat locker, so I wear cardigans all summer at the office. A sweater isn’t going to make this dress office (or anywhere) appropriate. I still love the fabric, so I’m going to pull it apart and salvage the fabric for a skirt.
I loved this one when I bought it, but I’ve never been able to accessorize it so that I don’t look like a waitress at a retro diner. Does anyone have an idea or should I just get rid of it?
It even looks frumpy on the dress form. Perhaps it should just go.
This is a vintage dress I’ve had for ages but never worn. It’s a flattering fit and I really like it, but it almost feels like a costume.
I’m keeping the dress, but whether it ever sees the light of day, remains to be seen.
I’m so ready for warm weather. Can you tell?
