Found In My Closet-Silk Culture Dress

I told myself that I wouldn't buy any new (or new used) clothes, shoes or accessories for the month of January and so far, so good. So, I've been digging dresses out of my closet that I haven't worn in ages and I'm finding a new appreciation for quite a few of them. This one from Silk Culture happens to be one of them...

I've had it for 6 or 7 years but I find it a little tricky to wear. Silk has a tendency to be staticy in the dry winters here but wrinkles like mad in the humidity of summer. So today, the high being in the 60's or so, was the perfect day to wear it. (It was chilly in the morning so I had to do some layering.)
The print reminds me of a large blown up Hawaiian print but in strange colors...

Perhaps it's the combination of pastels with the brown? Not sure, but I like it and as long as the winter stays as mild as it has this year, I think it's going into current rotation. Well worth the closet dig, don't you think?

It always feels amazing to find a treasure in your closet don't you think? :p And somehow it makes you feel less guilty for spending so much money to fill the wardrobe. That you've invested in lovely pieces that would stand through time :p Hahahaha. Confessions of a shopaholic.

You look gorgeous in that vintage dress, btw!

Congrats on your "NO shopping in january" I did it too !
I have a closet full of new unworn items that I need to get into rotation!
I like the dress but if it's you don't wear it that much maybe you could give it a few more tries and if it is not an easy wear, maybe its time to let go.

it's a beautiful dress...it does have a vintage hawaiian feel to it, but very modern with the black layered under!
