Chiffon Trenches

"I do believe there's a heaven. I do believe that God has given me the resilience and the survival skills to withstand the chiffon trenches." -Andre Leon Talley



I have been hoarding this dress in my closet for almost a year. I bought it last March after a friend wore it as a bridesmaid dress. I do not usually rush out and buy something at retail, but I loved this dress so much I couldn't help myself. And then, reality set in, I couldn't figure out where to wear this?!? It's not like I usually require a reason to wear something, but I struggled to find the right occasion for this frock. I finally decided that I would stop worrying about the perfect occasion, and I decided to dress it down with a trench. I wore this out to dinner with B, and now that I've devirginized this dress, it's not on a pedestal any longer, lol!

Do you have garments you love so much, you only want to wear them on a special occasion?

That is one beautiful dress, love the color and the embroidery! Amazing deal on that trench by the way! :) I used to keep bunch of stuff in my closet for special occasions, but soon realized that they just sat in my closet untouched. Since then, I wear something that I used to consider party attire to classes. I have no other option, classes are the only thing that I dress for on regular basis. :p

Oh gosh I'm such a new clothes hoarder! A part of me holds on to "new" clothes so that whenever I'm on a shopping ban, I always have something "new" to wear even if I can't shop. But yes, I do also buy clothes without an occasion in mind knowing one day I'll need it for *some*thing. Glad you were able to bust this out though! It's a fabulous dress and love how you styled it!

You look GREAT in this color and I am also guilty of purchasing an item only to have it take space in my closet. The good thing about this practice - when the occasion arises, you do not have to rush out and splurge or settle for some high priced item!! Kudos to you . .
