Life is too short not to celebrate even the smallest excitements. Today I was excited that this dress that I wore for my college graduation fit again! I remember being so excited about this beautiful DVF dress when it came into my store 3 years ago. A customer actually returned it from one of our New York locations. A dress from New York? If that wasn’t something to celebrate success I don’t know what is! I was even more delighted when shortly before graduation I ventured out to our Beverly Hills store and found the same exact dress still on the shelves at Saks. Granted it was on clearance there but the price tag was still waaay more than what I got it at. A cute dress bought at an amazing price, what’s not to love?  Plus, New York and Beverly Hills a part of a dress’ history, of course it was destined for me. Truthfully it didn’t fit when I first bought it but that was motivation to stick to a strict diet and start running some more. And it paid off! 

I would like to say I celebrated that accomplishment with some balloons back then but alas I figured a diploma would suffice. Anyone can wear a label, but it takes a true fashionista to wear a piece with a successful story to accompany it.

Speaking of stories, these earrings came with the most epic one. About a year ago my grandma bestowed these shiny treasures upon me. They were given to her by one of the costumers from the set of the “Golden Girls.” Doesn’t get any more epic than that. Shout out to that woman, thank YOU for being a friend!

One thing you learn really quick when shopping for designer pieces is don’t invest in pieces you’re only going to wear once. Unless it’s an absolutely amazing piece that you can’t live without. The only way to justify an expensive piece is if you can maximize the cost per wear. That’s why I typically only invest in more contemporary apparel pieces and save the Benjamins for my shoes and or bags. Right now, I’m at probably a $50 cost per wear considering this is only the second time I have worn this piece. Now that it fits again I think I need to maximize my investment. Yes, just like Carrie Bradshaw I like my money where I can see it. Hanging in my closet!
