Okay, so this is another story of how I had this dress before and now bought it pre loved again. Maybe you think, what is she talking about. You might want to read back here. But this story is even more fun! For me anyway, lol. I styled this dress two ways and would love to know which one you like best!
How I bought this dress again
I’m going to tell you the story about this dress. When I came to work in 2007 at Steps, a trendy ladies fashion store, I first had a month of training in Enschede to be a shopmanager. During this month you did not have the privileges of buying the clothes with a 50% discount. And what came into the collection that month? Right! This dress. And I was in love with it straight away. I loved the beautiful colors, the frivolous design and the high low hemline. In short, the dress was crying out for me to buy it.
But I gave it a damn buying it for the full price. Luckily the person who trained me was so sweet to buy it for me and I was so super happy with the dress! I enjoyed it for years, until it was completely washed out and worn out. A long time ago I saw this one on the online pre loved site and I decided to buy it. By the way, this design sold so fast that many were designed in various color combinations. So this was a bit of a surrogate dress. And in the meantime it is no longer a dress but a skirt.
Oh I am so thrilled about this gorgeous dress
And then ….. I saw the dress and in my size online! Of course I had to have it. The lady who sold it had barely worn it and I got a nice discount from her too. I paid € 7.50 for the dress. And the black is just as deep black as it once was when I bought it! Gosh I am so happy with this one. I can’t believe that after 13 years I found that dress again. I remember I wore a short black cardigan back then over the dress and cognac boots. I don’t have those boots anymore but I love these underneath. You already saw them here.
I styled the dress two ways. As you can see the waistline of the dress is a bit to high for me. So in the second look I am wearing a belt to make the waistline lower. And I thought perhaps black leather leggings and suède wedged ankle boots would look better. But I prefer the shorter cardigan( which I tied at the back so it looks like a bolero) and the cognac boots better! But with the belt. Did you ever buy the same item again?
PS: Maybe I alter this one in a skirt too, as I think it is a bit to short for me. What are your thoughts??
