Remember when I mentioned that I’d be cleaning out my closet (again) and selling pieces (again)? Well, the time has come to weed out my collection of black dresses, starting with one of these. The dress on the left is A.L.C. and I got it from MOSS earlier this year. It’s a great mix of casual & a little dressy because of the tank top and the draped bottom. It also has a zipper on the back, which gives it some interest. Generally I like it because it drapes nicely, and is longer in the front so I don’t need to see my knees 😉 I’ve worn it a few times, but only in cooler weather with tights. It really needs a little tweaking, like the shoulder straps shortened, but I’m so tired of doing alterations lately!
The dress on the right is by LnA. I’ve never worn this out, because every time I put it on, I fixate on that ONE knee I can see…and take it back off again. I do love the top of the dress, and that’s it a little slimmer fit (almost too slim, I probably should have taken a large in this one) than the A.L.C. dress, but it bothers me that it’s so short on one side.
I’m also wearing Rachel Comey sandals that I’m toying around with selling. I love them, but they rub my toes a bit too much, so I’ve hardly worn them…I’m going to wear them out today and make a decision as to wether to add them to the marketplace or not. Keep your eyes out if you like them and you’re a size 8 😉
Now that I’m looking at the pictures, I think I know which dress I’d like to keep – if I decide to keep either one. But I’d like to know what you think: which dress should I keep? Or should I sell both of them and continue the search for MY perfect knee-length black dress?
(necklace is by Lizzie Fortunato, and I think I’ll keep it!)
