Three weeks ago my husband and I went to our 25th high school reunion. This dress has been hanging in my closet for almost a year with tags still attached, it is so sad. I've always felt it was too fancy for going out to dinner around here, but I'm tired of this interesting piece just sitting and not getting any exposure. I would have preferred to have some sort of pop of color with this outfit, such as a red clutch or red pumps. I have red pumps, but they have a wood stacked heel, and the wood heel adds too many colors and doesn't work with this dress. So, I decided I had no other choice than to be matchy-matchy with my my black patent pumps and clutch.
