It was one of those closet breakdowns where I just couldn’t for the life of me, decide what I should wear out. We were just going to a beer hall but should I wear a dress, shorts, jeans, casual, fancy – I just couldn’t decide. I try not to text my friends and be a big girl and make my own decisions but I was getting desperate. When I through things together the outcome was this mix between girly and edgy that I absolutely loved.
Another fun fact: I had never worn this dress before. I have had it hanging in my closet for more than 3 years – I bought it from Banana Republic when I was in California I just didn’t know how to wear it. Not only that but when I bought it the cashier asked me if I was going to wear it as a dress or a night gown. That through me off, and I couldn’t bring myself to wear something that may or may not be a night gown. Since I bought it so long ago they obviously don’t have it in anymore, but Free People has similar styles like the one I linked below. Also right now there’s Free Shipping Over $100 at FreePeople.com!
Also don’t hate me but I cannot find a similar black denim vest, I got mine from Forever 21 but they don’t have it anymore. Next choice: black denim jacket, linked below. I promise to stop using last season’s clothes.
Desperate times call for desperate measures and turns out it is a great dress and too expensive to be a night gown. It would also look amazing with cowboy boots (hello Stampede) but for regular nights out I really like mixing the styles and not looking too girly.
