trash to treasure.

my sister is famous for buying things and not wearing them.
usually because it just looks good on the hanger...in the store.
whatever the reason, it works out for me.
she was about to throw away two brand new dresses.
this silk dress was one of them. the pockets drape in a way that makes your hips look really pointy.
my trusty red blazer solved this issue and added some much needed color.

(dress, rachel roy; blazer, express; shoes, max studio)

  1. I get really upset when I buy something, love it, and then later on never end up wearing it. I wonder what happened that made me change my mind about it or lose interest?

  22. I actually really love those pointy pockets on that dress. Looks really great on you with or without the blazer. I could not pull off pointy hips look, but you darling, can!
    However, as you said blazer does add color!

  29. Loving the look. The red blazer with the snakeskin dress is fierce. My friend does that all the time with shoes and since we wear the same size it works out for me.

  30. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? That dress was going to be trashed??? I LOVE it! Seriously, it would quite possibly be my favorite item, were it in my closet! I don't think the pocket drape is problematic at all....the point is like a style in and of itself! But I love how you pair the red blazer with it. Tell your sis if she wants to throw more unworn clothing out, she should send it my way =)
