Fantasy vs Reality

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 2:00 pm

I’ve never shown you my absolute favorite dress before. It is very delicate so it basically lives a lonely life in my closet, the last time I wore it was to my office Christmas party in 2007. To wear it with carefree ease is a fantasy of mine.

    It does look cute & delicate, why can’t you wear it carefree? It’s not revealing.

    I love the fanatsy version too, and am completely puzzled as to why you couldn’t wear it that way! You look gorgeous in it like that.

    oh, to clarify the dress is really delicate as in old and close to falling apart. 🙁

    At least the fantasy dress can be immortalized in photographs…. it’s so lovely!

    It looks like a lovely dress. I do hate reality sometimes…

    The cut, the shoulders and the neckline totally suits you and it really flattering with the hair cut/your facial features. I wish I could pull it off, but ANYTHING with an empire cut is horrible with my big Greek boobies. 🙁

    The dress is beautiful and very flattering on you. It’s such a shame that it’s getting old! At least it’s a classic silhouette – you might be able to find a replacement someday.
