Describe your outfit…

Green lace dress.

Why do you still have it in your wardrobe?

The style is timeless and still fits very well after 5 years.

Why is this item meaningful to you?

It was a pretty expensive piece so I will keep it as long as I can!

Rules when shopping…

  1. Must fit well and comfortable, and compliment body shape.
  2. Must be able to use it for more than 1 occasion.  (Never buy something just because it’s on sale).
  3. If I see an item that exceeds my budget, I always give myself a 2-day cooling period.  If I really can’t stop thinking about it and have to have it, then I may indulge.
