Lost Love

Dress: Shu Lami, secondhand, purchased with store credit // Blazer: Vintage, thrifted, $3 // Boots: Vintage via Wildman Vintage, $15 // Hat: Target, $5

When I found this dress over a year ago, it was love at first sight. Then the infatuation quickly subsided, and I only wore it once or twice before neglecting it completely. It's been on my list to remix for ages, but it always felt like a chore until the other day. I found myself really wanting to wear it, and this ensemble just fell into place. I felt great and am so glad I gave this dress another chance! It sort of makes me wonder what other forgotten gems are hiding in my closet.

Isn't that weird how that happens sometimes-- a few seasons later you find you like something again.
I love all these colors paired together.

This dress is like a fashion designer's geometric take on Big Bird. Which I consider a compliment, this is a stand-out outfit!

This looks awesome together! So unexpected, but so cool. I think it's the colors and weighted fabrics that make it seem so lush.
