Pink & Black

I will be honest – I had initially bought this dress many moons ago while on a thrifting expedition. BUT with the total intention to resell it, not to wear it. This is collateral from my days when I was working several part time jobs and reselling clothes on the side. Luckily those days are behind me, but the urge is still strong – to buy things I know I can sell at a later point. I tried on the dress, but the hot pink color left me shrugging my shoulders. It came home with me but went to the bottom of the closet with other things to be sold.

Well, it sat there in that pile for months and months. Then some more. I finally decided to sell all that stuff once and for all (and a promise to myself to stop shopping for others). But the hot pink dress didn’t look so bad after all. And, I kind of liked it! Because of our transitional weather, I had to be a little more creative than how I’d rather imagine myself wearing it (warm weather, not layered, with some beige sandals) – but alas, until then, layers it is. So I kept it uncomplicated with the all black.
