Today I wore my brown strapless dress by Ruth for the first time! When I bought it a few years ago, I was somewhat concerned it had been a bridesmaid dress and would always look like a bridesmaid dress, but it fit great and it was $3.74, so into the basket it went. Plus I love the pink ribbon. I feel like a box of chocolates.
It's beautifully warm and sunny this weekend, so if this isn't the occasion for a possible bridesmaid dress, I don't know what is.
I added a blue topaz necklace from etsy (because an outfit could always use a shot of blue), thrifted earrings, and my comfortable Rieker antistress shoes. I'm so glad I thrifted these shoes on a whim. They're quickly becoming my favorite comfortable feminine walking shoe.
