A couple of weeks ago I did something I love to but rarely do. I went through my "fancy dress" closet. It's in my spare bedroom along with my shoe collection, my jewelry, and a few suits that my husband convinced me to squish in. It also holds my prized possessions: my Betsey Johnson dresses. Most of them were bought on sale, some still have tags on them, and some were gifts from my ex boyfriend. I wish I had more reasons/events to wear them to, but much like an old wedding dress, they just sit in my closet wrapped in their pretty pink dress bags. Now, I don't usually post outfits that I wouldn't wear everyday, but I figured these dresses needed to see the light of day (and my blog) every once in awhile.
I bought this dress at over 50% off when Betsey was going out of business last year. I know this because the tags are still attached! I love the color of it and the skirt is so full and pretty. I thought wearing this amazingly cute bicycle cardigan that I borrowed from Jessica of Midwest Muse would be the perfect way to dress it down... A little! I have always dreamed of having a tea party in a pretty garden in this dress. Maybe someday it will happen!
