Pockets

Mexx dress, Aldo flats (last seen here), unknown tights, Suzy necklace & A.Co Designs bracelet

Dresses with pockets.  Seriously awesome.  I have a few.  I've insisted a few.  This one is no exception.  I bought this dress three years ago and still wear it, still get compliments on it, and still love it.  I've never belted it nor worn it without tights, and I think I've always worn it with flats because the hemline is quite short on me.  Sometimes you get stuck in your own fashion box and can't see beyond it, and while I certainly think it's important to step outside the box often, it's almost just as important to know what works and to sometimes stick with it.

It's Friday!  Yipee!  What are your weekend plans my lovely readers?  I'm planning on checking out a friend's new place (and potentially downing some vino while at it), finally setting up my sewing machine and celebrating my Grammy's birthday.

  Have a great weekend!

I'm also a fan of skirts/dresses with pockets! Sometimes it's the feature that wins me over in buying a garment!
