The Impossible Dress


This dress was a garage sale buy. I loved it instantly but little did I realise that it would be a pain to wear in real life. Sometimes, you see something and then imagine a situation it would be perfect for. Of course you (read 'I') forget the fact that such situations really don't come in the life of a poor postgrad who spends more time in a dusty classroom than an opulent ballroom. So yes, it was a struggle to style this dress. Its my 'on a dance reality show' dress and this is the very first time I've worn it in public.

I couldn't resist taking a couple of pictures with only the dress on. It honestly feels a bit too much on its own, and I don't think I'd be comfortable wearing it without a blazer or a cover-up of some kind to hide the 'exposed' bits. I love the asymmetric hemline (I'm a big fan of disharmony when the mood strikes) and think that everybody should have atleast one piece of clothing that has a crazy hemline for special occasions.I mean, you never know when you'll be invited to do the tango on that dance show you like right? No? Okay, maybe it's just me then.
