Dressing correctly for every occasion can be stressful, expensive, and time consuming; i.e finding that perfect outfit. It’s especially hard when you aren’t satisfied wearing something standard – the root of the “so many clothes and yet nothing to wear” problem. You can shop all you want, but how do you know you will have the perfect outfit for that dressy beach BBQ at a moment’s notice? And then you have to take into account the weather (especially in Chicago)! I’m always running into this problem since I am never drawn to basics. I end up spending my money on that one dress, jumpsuit, or skirt that is so loud and obnoxious that you can only wear it once. Allocating my funds to such specific pieces means that I am constantly running into the “so many clothes and yet nothing to wear” dilemma and/or the “I have this fabulous outfit yet nowhere to wear it” dilemma – which I personally think is even worse! This dress is a prime example. Where do you wear a daytime sundress that is slightly dressy (requires high wedges), slightly see-through, and demands no bra? Obviously, it needs to be worn in the summer, to a day event but with relatively liberal guests as to not be judged by my imminent nip slip that is guaranteed to occur. Regardless, I find it to be perfect as long as you can have an occasion to rock it.
