More Than Mint: CCT Style Dress

Like my GUHLS over at PMN, Erica (of CloudsofTulle) also had some great finds for sale at MoreThanMint & of course because I'm too impatient to go shopping regularly (and who doesn't love a great deal), I spotted this dress & immediately bought it.

Except....it sat in my closet for MONTHS before I decided to wear it.  I tried wearing it to my family's Christmas party but it wasn't "white enough" for my mom, so it went back in the closet.  But then it's TOO white for a wedding, and I haven't gone to any fancy dinners lately, so...it just sat & sat.  I would pull it out, then put it back in, only because I didn't think the places I was going was fancy enough to be wearing the dress.

Until I gave up & just wore it to work.  I needed to break it in.  And you know what?  Just like getting your first scratch on your car or on your new phone's screen, once you do it, you're suddenly much more comfortable with it.

  12. Your lwd is super adorable. It's flow-y in all the right ways and very feminine. I bought a white dress I was in love with two years ago and have worn it twice.
    Cheers,
