The Repeat Dress
When it comes to the bold, statement garments in my wardrobe, I'm usually apprehensive to wear them more than once in the same place or around the same people. Though it sounds frivolous, it's true! The louder the gown, the more memorable it is.
There is one dress in my wardrobe, however, that never gets old. I bought it at TopShop in October along with some embroidered sandal pumps. The tonal contrast of warm and cool actually works well here (eight years of color theory classes will make you think about these things)! I wore the outfit out to a nice date on Friday night and to my step-sister’s wedding on Saturday (though I was advised to wear a cardigan, as backless and spaghetti straps don't always float well at a family gathering)...
I wore it again this February for a pre-birthday, birthday dinner date, and received just as many compliments! Lace-up heels, embroidery, and backless dresses are a perennial showstopper, no matter how many times you wear them.
