grey buttons, summer dress
dress :: veronika maine. c 2006
When I was sorting out my wardrobe the other day, I came across this dress. I bought it around five years ago, and it's still in perfect shape – and I still love it! It's funny how you can feel that your style may have changed over the years, but ultimately there are still things that you love during those years and beyond.
As much as I loved the style of the '40's – '50's back then, I didn't wear it, but I fell in love with this rather 50's/early '60's style dress as soon as I saw it. The buttons got me. They are functioning, too! I can't say I have a use for them yet, though... Anyway, this dress was perfect for a warm but windy day; the full skirt is not full enough to be blown up and away!
I also decided that pink lips and nails was nice with the greys and greens – and a nice change from my usual red, too.
Do you find you have things in your wardrobe that you love for years?
