Today I’m going back to black!

After wearing a lot of colorful outfits this summer, I now want to go back to black today! Sometimes it’s just so nice to wear all black. And to think that I wore before black almost every day! Ah, what a person can change! I bought this dress a long time ago and never worn. When I wore it for the first time I thought, mm, it’s actually a bit short and it’s not really me either. After a long time I did fit it again with in my mind that I did not like the dress. And I liked it! I thought that it looked good suddenly. But I didn’t wore it, I just fitted it. So yesterday I wanted to wear the dress and  when I had it on……what do you think? I didn’t like it again! What the …is it with this dress?

Back to black in a dress that doesn’t make me happy!

Crazy huh! So this one goes with the clothes to sell! Defenitely! I’m not going to try again. And the design of the dress is really nice, it’s a beautiful chiffon, it has lots of details and it’s a good quality. But I do not like the pleats and ruffles in one item and it is too short. I have a pretty long upper body and a short skirt or dress brings my figure out of proportion. So I’m done with it. I finally wear black again, and I don’t like it. Well great! And now I’m taking it of, because it is bikini weather here! Yeah, finally!

I hope you all can enjoy some summer days too. We have a heat wave here in the Netherlands! That means lots of reading in the sun and take a splash in the water! Oh yeah! (btw, yes I saw it when I previewd this post! I have to clean the garage door!)

This is where I link up!

    Sorry to hear you don’t like the dress anymore. It looks really nice. Maybe you can try it again with some colourful accessories.

      Thank you Izabela. Can you comment again like it was? I’m really curious about that. Sorry. But no, no color can make me change my mind, it’s just not the dress for me. I’m glad you think it looks nice!

    So here’s my take on the dress Nancy.
    I think it’s a perfectly acceptable dress—there’s just no pizzazz to it. And you’ve shown so much fun & interesting outfits lately, so maybe it feels too boring?
    It fits nice—would you be up to trying a bright belt and shoes before giving up on it?

      What does that mean Jodie, pizzazz, I dont know the term! No, its not that I think it needed color, its just the design, the fabric, the lenght! But thanks for the advice!

    Well, it’s like that with clothes (and jobs, and men, and people and hobbies): it may look good, in theory, but you have to try it on. And sometimes it just doesn’t work, for whatever reason, and then you move on (or not, and remain unhappy…). No need to analyse it, it’s not always rational. If it doesn’t feel right, then nothing will change that. Next!

      Haha, you are right! We always say, when in doubt, dont!

      Thank you, yes it’s just a dress right. It’s not your pet!

    Beautiful black dress, but I know what you mean about enjoying colorful clothing now. I rarely wear an all black look anymore, and it used to be my go-to. Loved all of the twirling poses!

      Did your way of styling also change because of blogging?

    • August 25, 2016 / 12:17 pm

      Thank you, I also love black but I’m wearing it less. But it feels good to wear black! 🙂

    I really like this dress, Nancy! But if you don’t feel fabulous in it, then there is no sense in holding on to it. I love your cardigan, too. The beading detail is so pretty!

    Thanks so much for linking up with me On the Edge of the Week! I hope to see you again next week. Have a marvelous weekend!

      Thank you, it’s the same cardigan as I am wearing on the white dress!

      Thank you Alice!
