I almost donated this dress because I thought it was for special events (I bought it for my nephew’s wedding years ago), and my life is casual. When I tried it on again though, I loved it for the funky asymmetrical design – one of my current passions – and the flattering neckline. Keep!
Always room in my closet for a dress with some attitude:

The dress is by Calvin Klein (similar), purchased at Ross Dress For Less for under $50. I wore it to the wedding with hose (!) and heels. Now I’m adding casual wedge sandals (sim) and non-traditional jewelry. The cuff is an amalgam of stuff, crafted together by an artist on Etsy (sim). Kind of romantic, kind of industrial.
The necklace is a treasure – a camphor glass piece with diamond chips (sim) – from the 1920’s, that my grandmother Lucy wore at her wedding. Grandma Lucy was my virtual mother, and I loved her dearly. This piece makes me well up when I wear it, thinking about how beautiful she was in 1929, and what a challenging life she had.
