I have a problem where I buy an item of clothing, and it sits and sits on its hanger for ages before I ever wear it out of the house. Sometimes I do this because it's a little too small, and I'm waiting to lose a little weight; sometimes it's because I don't have anything that goes with it yet; sometimes it's because it's a little more daring than what I usually wear and I haven't gotten up the nerve to wear it yet.
Today's dress is one such item of clothing.
I thrifted this jumper aaaages ago, but it was a little too tight and I didn't know what to wear it with. And when I found a blouse that worked, I thought the outfit was a little too schoolgirl-y, and didn't try wearing it out for the longest time. Well, I lent it to a friend for a Dragoncon costume, and she looked so cute that I decided I had to at least try wearing it myself. And it worked out just fine.
