I originally bought this dress to wear to my cousin's wedding this summer (first seen here). It had been sitting pretty on my clothing rack, with its tags still intact, taunting me ever since. It's definitely not an everyday dress, but rather one to be worn for special occasions. Since I've never been one to think you should only wear something once, I pulled it out on the night of my birthday party and slipped it on. It's deceptively light (so much so that I found myself peeking down to make sure I wasn't giving anyone a show) and it felt appropriately festive without being too fancy.
