Do you guys have items in your closet that were crazy impulse buys (or induced by pregnancy hormones)? This dress was definitely one of them and its been hanging in my closet since 2011.....until NOW!!! The past couple of months I have really come out of my shell and started wearing whatever I want whenever I want without giving a single thought to what anyone else thinks. 

And yea, this dress kind of reminds me of sasquatch....which is maybe why I like it even more. Soo, with it being a new year and everything I want you guys to get out of your comfort zone.....I want to see items or entire looks that you never thought you would wear!!!! Upload them to instagram and tag them #what2wearblog or share them on the What2Wear facebook page or both!!!! I'm seriously stoked to see what you come up with!!! Have a good weekend skrillas :)

And for the necklace du jour....The Stella & Dot Sierra

  7. Wow! You look absolutely stunning from head to toe and the pictures are amazingly gorgeous. I don't really have impusive buys. I think over weeks or months before I get something because I hate to regret and waste money in things I won't love in a near future. The dress is however gorgeous x

  11. This dress reminds me of a flapper from the 20s. I LOVE it. I love that you are no longer caring what others think. I need to be brave enough to step out on a ledge like that.

  21. Brooke I LOVE every. single. piece. Just all too gorgeous, and so glad you decided to wear the dress after all! On Instagram I've tagged my neon orange brogues (oxfords) I bought as an impulse buy a couple of years ago... they were on sale and I really thought I'd only wear them once or twice: I've worn them to death ever since!

    Have a fabulous weekend lovely, and keep the gorgeousness coming. So glad I found your blog :)))

  31. OMG that is one of the best dresses ever. I so wish it wasn't from 2011 or I would order it now. I'm going to stalk ebay for one. And yes, I wear whatever (although I can't say whenever- if I went into a 3rd grade classroom dressed in a latex top, they might 2nd guess who they have teaching art, if you know what I mean :) lol) But, I do try to embarrass my husband as much as possible :)
