I recently had a revelation that I need to do something with my wardrobe dilemma I think a lot of girls can relate to- an overflowing wardrobe but somehow nothing to wear. My racks are full of extremely random statement pieces in bold colours and clashing textures, that can be worn well in a single way- but don’t mix well with the rest of my wardrobe. Instead of making unnecessary purchases of under $100 that make you feel like you’ve scored a bargain, I’ve saved for a few I’ve been literally drooling over for the last 12 months (aka this PS11, my forever dream bag…) by listing things on eBay and selling at markets saving up for the more ‘curated wardrobe’ which this outfit is my first result of. I bought this Acne silk black maxi dress back in New York on my first visit to Barneys, and have worn countless times in so many ways, that makes it feel like a bargain. It has splits down the back that turn it from a daytime silk sack with flat sandals to subtle suggestive at night with heels.
