Hi everyone. This is what I wore today; a simple floral dress that I custom made a long time ago. I got the fabric at a fabric store and at the time I really loved the zig- zag floral pattern. I took the fabric straight to my seamstress with a drawing of a simple A-line empire dress with covered buttons and short sleeves. I liked it so much that it was one of my favorite dresses to wear to church in the summer time; but that was years ago. I got tired of it and retired it in my closet and forgot about it completely.
Coincidentally, I was surprised to see a similar dress on polyvore a few weeks back. The sleeveless coastal dress retails for $175. It is very chic and elegant and I had to resist myself from making a purchase...((. A week later, I was reorganizing my closet and came across my old custom made dress. I tried it on and was surprised that it still fits after three kids! I made it over ten years ago when I was still single and just held unto it all these years because of the sentimental value. I think it is time to give it away now. It felt very snug when I put it on today and my growing belly made it look like a tight fit dress instead of the A-line shape that it is.
I accessorized the dress with my green suede Jessica Simpson shoes and a neutral bag and green stone earrings and I felt like I was ten years younger...:)

Do you see the similarity between my dress and the dress that I styled for the Polyvore collage below? The flowers in the fabric are very similar and the style of the dress looks the same too sans the belt and the box pleat. Check out the blog post here.
Thanks so much for reading and for leaving your lovely comments. I wish you a great and productive week.
