|Wearing Macy's dress, Old Navy shoes, Etsy earrings, thrifted belt|
I think I've worn this pinstripe dress twice. I bought it several years ago when I was 10 pounds heavier and feeling like it was probably only upwards from there. Which means that when I lost the weight a few months later it was too big. Not WAY too big, but big enough to look kind of awkward.
The other day I was contemplating tossing it when I realized it had probably never been through the dryer. One quick load of laundry later and ta-da! It just about fits. A quick belting and we're in business. No sewing required.
I also haven't worn these shoes in about 2 years. The cumulative effect was that I felt like I was wearing a brand new outfit when really it was all stuff that has been languishing in my closet for ages. It kind of makes me wonder what else I've got lurking in there.
