Clothes Hoarding





dress: asos (old, similar here)// shoes: shoemint (similar here)// sunnies: prada (similar here)// bag & jewels: stella & dot

Despite qualms from my husband, there is an upside to being a clothes hoarder. I can almost guarantee you that if you name an occasion....I have the ensemble to  accompany it. Black tie, done... dive bar, done....cocktail attire, done....mommy playgroup, done. So, with wedding season in full swing, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner and wedding attire are required. I've had this dress since my bachelorette weekend and I wore it to a friend's bridal shower last weekend.  It felt like the perfect fit for a little rustic outdoor shower.  See all of you grumpy husband's out there.....we do it for a reason!!!!

  9. This dress is gorgeous!

    I played up similar colors today and am loving it :)
    I've been drawn to the mix of blues lately...

    And, husbands will never understand...
    I try to compare it to something he hoards but still doesn't work.
    Fail.

    Either way, I love the details... Love the shoes and I want that necklace! :D

  10. haha, I am the same way, however, whenever we have a new event to go to, I always go buy something new instead of shopping ym own closet! Ooops!

  20. You look so stunning in this dress, love the colors! That's what I tell my husband too, when he asks "why do you need that, I've never seen you wear it".. and I say "but I know there will be that one occasion when I do need.. and look, I already have it!" Then he just rolls his eyes at me, because truth be told, I'd prob go and buy a new outfit for the occasion anyway! :)

  35. Oh my, this is so cute! I love the bracelet and the clutch with it!

    And I'm a total clothes hoarder too. It's a useful habit to have sometimes! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Haha I hope my husband reads this! Actually I'm not much of a clothes hoarder. I get sick of looking at the same things so every now and then I get the urge to purge. I'm really loving long line pencil skirts lately. This peplum combo is just fab!
