Eyelet and Brown

Monday, May 09, 2016

This is my favorite dress, even though I only wear it once a year.

eBay Hat, Thrifted Dress (Urban Ourfitters), Thrifted Sandals, assorted jewelry

This dress is perfection. The sleeves, the skirt, the eyelet laser cut outs--it's gorgeous. It's such a prairie, bohemian dress that just calls for a floppy hat.
It's an end of an era guys. This week is my last week working in retail and I'm beyond ready to close this door behind me. I'm a firm believer that everyone should work a few weeks in the retail or food service industry to see what consumer culture is like. Retail has made me a bitter and cynical person, and it makes me come home tired and uninspired. My new job, the beginning of a career of sorts, is a new beginning for me and my adult life. I cannot convey how incredibly happy I am.

  1. Yay, for your last week in retail! I did it for 8 long years. The dress is so cute! I'd be wearing it more than once a year ;)

    1. It's a pretty dramatic dress, plus it's near pure white and I feel like it's going to attract stains if I wear it often. It's a treasure that I wear once in a while!

      Thank you!

  2. lovely!


  3. I was a waitress for 7 years. I know that feeling well. I've not gone on to a career but my new job isn't customer service which makes me happy


    1. I'm glad you enjoy your new job, thank you!

  4. Such a darling outfit, Katie!

  5. Love this dress!

    Congrats on moving to a new job. I totally agree with you re: working retail/customer service, but it can be so draining, I wasn't too sad to move to a behind-the-scenes position either.
