This dress. I fell instantly in love and bought it only to find out there was literally no occasion where it would be appropriate (this might be the reason it was on sale at that time and still available in my size).

Really, I have tried several times and have always felt either underdressed or overdressed. The only time it kind of worked well was at a fashion show in New York. Great, but how many times am I going to want to wear the same dress to a fashion show? And I guess taking pictures for the blog on a Sunday afternoon, as much fun as it is, doesn’t really count as an occasion. Still, none of these things could ever derogate my love for this dress. I love the raw unfinished edges, velvet ribbon detailing and layers of pleated chiffon.
