Simple and Shiny, like a Cherry Tree

Sunnies: Downtown Threads, Dress: Calvin Klein (via Goodwill),

Bracelets: Gifted, Thrifted & Charlotte Ruse,

Shoes: Carlos Santana (almost 10 years old) 

I’m terrible when it comes to weeding out items from my closet. I’ve carried these shoes around with me for a little more than 8 years and this is the first time I’ve actually worn them. This dress is another item that I’ve been holding onto for multiple years and this is also the first time it’s seen the outside of my closet.

I was a little worried that these shoes were too dated but I liked how the heels were almost reflective, it added a perfect pop of color to the outfit. I’m not sure what else from my wardrobe would pair well with these heels so I’m on the fence about keeping them for much longer, unlike this dress; which I’ve fallen madly in love with.

From the slight flare around the hips to the simple sash that defines the waist this dress made me feel ultra feminine and even a bit proper. Not to shabby for a $4 dress from Goodwill! I was surprised by how sexy I felt in such a conservative dress; I can’t believe I waited this long to wear it! Now that I know how great this dress make me feel I can’t wait to layer it with colored tights and a pair of killer booties this fall/winter.

Do you have clothes in your closet that you’ve never worn? How/when do you know it’s time to give them up?
