Hi, my name is Abby and I am addicted to buying dresses. I don't know when it started, but I realize I have a problem. The problem isn't actually buying the dresses. It's not wearing them.
Last week, dh and I went to the Vagabond sale. I bought 3 dresses (and I love each so very very much). When I put them in my closet (which is really Jed's closet), I was taken aback by how many other dresses were waiting to welcome the newest additions. So many, that I had to move some to a different closet. Folks, it's bad.
1a.) Retail therapy is awesome.
2) Even though I am almost 30, I think I am just now coming into my own style (see #1). I so wish I could find a photo to support my point, but Shelly Long circa the Money Pit is my new style icon. Man, her dresses were amazing. I know lots of girls who swoon over the vintage 60s/70s styles, but they never worked for me. I've realized that I am true blue vintage 80s girl, through and through.
However, none of my theories supports the fact that I don't wear dresses regularly. They aren't a part of my professional or casual wardrobe. That is until now. I made a promise to myself that before I can buy another dress, I have to wear at least 1 a week until spring. I can buy new tights, but no more dresses. Since making this decision, I've worn a dress twice this week and I have plans to wear one Saturday and a different one Sunday. It's a new me.
