The Dress That Has Won My Heart

August 19, 2017

Ever so often we come across those germs that hold a special place in our hearts. This dress too has made it to the list of some of my favourites also. I bought it for only a R190 but it does not look nor feel that way. It has taken me to business and work meetings; even to a funeral and a dinner date. Its cost per wear has been unparalleled. It has proven that you don’t necessarily have to pay an arm and a leg to look decent. Many a times I tell my friends and family that the price tag does not determine how the garment will look on you. The effort you put in cleanliness and taking care of the garment will surely show in the eyes of many.
I cannot lie and say that I do not love finer things in life because I do. Ever since the country went into recession, and the fact that one’s coin no longer stretches the extra mile; I have made a decision to make the effort to look decent without sacrificing much in my finances. I am now learning the value of living within my means. Hence I want to ensure that I get to sustain my current lifestyle should God forbid anything happen to me or my loved ones.
On to the styling of this dress, I paired it with accessories that have made an appearance on this blog before.  These bronze – olive greenish shoes are a hit with many along with the sister pair from the same range; the brown ones featured here as well as in many other posts. It is unfortunate that I bought them in December 2015 and are no longer available today but there are similar pairs in the market. Working in a corporate environment has forced me to invest in classic and timeless pieces that can be worn countless times; be it dressed up or down yet still look put together. There is an upcoming blog post with some of my favourite shoes, be on the lookout for that.
