The "all kinds of wrong" dress

Dress: thrifted // shoes: sportsgirl

Unfortunately this dress is a little tight and if I am completely honest a bit short as well (which is my own altering bungle). It is also probably hideous to some people, my mum was definitely not impressed when she saw it. However for some reason when I put it on, I just fell in love. It kind of feels like a sexy dress though most people would say it looks like a grandpa's pyjamas. I think it might be the long sleeve, short skirt combo that makes it feel a bit more pretty than it actually is.

So even though this dress is wrong in so many ways I wont be parting with it just yet. Isn't that the point of clothes to make you feel happy? This dress makes me happy and I am going to wear it with pride maybe with stockings in public though hehe.

Do you have any clothes that you just cant part with regardless of how they look?

  1. I do wear a lot of clothes that aren't quite right. I'm trying to learn not to care what other people think as long as I'm happy! I like your dress I think it's quirky. My rule with dresses is if my butt shows after a slight bend stockings are my friend! oh that rhymed!

  2. Hello there! Haha I quite like this dress, even though it is a bit Grandpa-ish. I have heaps of clothes that I can't part with, mainly because they are pretty to look at but not very nice when worn. I need to learn to alter clothes!

  3. I think this dress is quite cute! :) It would look great paired with black tights and a blazer in the cooler months too (lucky you being in summer!) :)

    Love, Vanilla

  4. See I would actually wear a dress like that - I love the colouring and design of the pattern. Sometimes its best to wear what is different, then at least you don't merge into the background with everyone else.

  5. I think this is cute! You've got awesome legs (hope that isn't creepy), so why not show them off?

    It's definitely not too tight, either. It just shows off your figure! Rock it, girl! :)

  15. I feel like this dress would look amazing with red or green or brown nylons and kinda sassy over a pair of jeggings. Its not wrong at all. infact I am a little envious of you owning such a fabulous dress!
