Sometime ago I began the massive job of thinning out my clothing - I do have less, but my drawers, shelves and wardrobe are still stuffed and packed to the rafters. Lingering in there are some items that I know I need to cull.
There are others that I have to keep if only to reach that elusive point when all these things collide: the weight at which I can get into the item; the body with which the item actually looks good (not just being able to get in it!); the right occasion to allow me to wear it - summer dresses on christmas? no? You see what I mean.
And then there is this. This one is my dilemma:
This is a slip dress from TopShop. Bought several years ago, my intention was to rock it up with knee high boots and a leather jacket. I am the wrong side of 35 now and I no longer feel that I can pull off that look. I am very pale skinned and on its own it sort of looks like I am wearing a nightie not a dress.
I don't want to part with it unworn. But what on earth do I wear it with that will look half decent? Suggestions most welcome! Help!!
