We all have those fancy dresses that we purchased for that black tie wedding, it ends up sitting in our closets for years. Some of my oldest pieces are pretty dresses that I wore once and hang in my closet, waiting to see the light again. I imagine them being children at gym time yelling, “pick me, pick me!” only to be the child that never gets picked.
My favorite part of black tie affairs is dressing up! I love to feel brand new so I purchase something new each time.
All of this got me thinking, how can I re-wear those dresses during the day? How do those dresses finally get picked?
