Despite common perspective, I do not go shopping very often. I go looking, but I don’t usually purchase. I’m saving up space in my wardrobe (and wallet) for a few certain 2nd hand items: a black leather cross body bag, Chloe shoes I have my eye on, and distressed jeans. I managed to make an exception for this Izod sports dress I found in Clothes Mentor (35% off $22? absolutely). At first glance it was a great 2nd hand find, but my mind immediately when to how would I wear it? And what did I need a sports dress for? I’m certainly not going to play tennis in this. It was too good to pass up though, so expect to see it more than frequently as I experiment with layers.
