After purging my closet of some old dresses, I can now say that I only own twenty-seven dresses. This meant a lot to me and my partner. For different reasons, haha. He definitely has a bit more space in the closet now. I got rid of two boxes of dresses. It was truly hard to pat with some of them but I needed to let them go.
If the title reminded you of that movie with Katherine Heigl, then good. That was my goal. That movie was great simply because it made me feel more normal in my own closet. At least my dresses weren’t from obnoxious wedding themes. Plus, you got to love Bennie and the Jets when it comes on at the bar scene. It’s magical and soo unrealistic.
As much as I like layering clothes in the fall, that’s more of a choice to stay warm. If I could I would wear minimal clothes year round. That’s why my go-to is a dress. Plus my favorite part of my body is my legs. They are just really long. So to express my mood or look for the day with just one piece means everything to me. The tomboy in me doesn’t have a fighting chance. Wearing dresses makes me smile more and overall puts me in good spirits.
I have a jean overall dress that makes me feel five again. A long blue floral dress that makes me feel like a tourist. A long tan one for my lazy days, and soo many more. My favorite part is when I find a dress at the thrift store that is gorgeous. I could list every dress in my closet – but I’ll save you the read. Some photos will be strung along on Instagram as well.
I like to consider it feminine to wear a dress. I don’t think it matters what sex you are or claim to be. It’s just something about the way one walks in a dress. The way the hips shift from side to side. Much different from wearing pants, much more powerful. Ahh, I could get lost talking about dresses.
I wish I had an endless budget just to spend on dresses. Put a cap on everything else and I will be okay. Well, I would also need a new closet or two so they have a place to live. In a perfect world.
Do you know a boutique that needs a model? I just want to keep the clothes. I will model and post for them. Anyway, I plan to acquire more dresses this year. Not planning on a certain number but I definitely need to either replace or make sure I have storage. Gasp! This summer I will be trying to make my own dresses. Yes, i know. Another project, but at least I could save money making them. The best part is I know I already have some dress patterns around here somewhere.
Do you like wearing dresses? Why? Catch me outside this summer in a dress. Hopefully, something I made. Until next time.
