Dress of the Week

A few years ago I realized I owned a million dresses and really never wore them. So I started making myself wear a dress (or skirt) once a week. I enjoy it now and haven't stopped since!

FAQ

Wow, you have a lot of dresses!
Yes, they were accumulated over many, many years. Thankfully my body has not changed too much, so even ones from long ago still fit (most of them). Also, they don't get worn out very fast only wearing one per week and for special occasions.

Have you been buying new dresses?
Only when the opportunity presents itself. I only bought two new ones during the main part of this series (July 2015-May 2016).

Why'd you stop posting?
I've shared most of the ones I wanted to, so I brought this photo series to a close. Not to worry, I'll still be wearing a dress a week in real life, just not uploading pix every time. (It would get redundant, I promise.) If I get a new dress or wear a special one, I will share it here.

Is it always the same day of the week?
No! Dress of the week happens on a random day of the week (usually a weekday).

Dress of the week returns! Okay, not permanently, but I wanted to share this new one with you. I don't usually shop at @forever21, but this #prariechic / 70s-ish dress caught my eye on a trip hunting for dance costumes with @jennashmoo, so I went for it. Also trying to pretend it's warm enough outside for this springy look! Almost! Missing my dresses of the week or want to know the backstory?

I'm wearing a repeat IRL this week.

Channeling the 90's (think Shirley Manson) with this outfit. The dress was made(!) for me long ago, with a pattern based on a more colorful dress I loved. Breaking out the knee-high Dr. Martens, which I think I got right before leaving for college, heh. background: a few years ago i realized i owned a million dresses and really never wore them. so i started making myself wear a dress (or skirt) once a week. i enjoy it now and haven't stopped since!#dressoftheweek #ootd #dress #dotw #blackdress #90s #boots #drmartens #sorryihavenoforehead

Dress of the week = skirt of the week! This one's from one of those cheapie stores, maybe Wet Seal? I go back & forth on how flattering I think it is, so I don't wear it too often.

This week's dress is from @urbanoutfitters, back when I had @la_alley's family discount card. I recently replaced the elastic waistband which had stretched out, so I can continue to enjoy this one #crafty. Love the pattern, and for some reason it's always reminded me of the "met hippo" (in a good way)!

I can't believe I haven't shared this one yet!

Fashion gods and goddesses, i apologize for wearing a dress over jeans. But that's just what this week's dress, and the weather, required.

Dress of the week! From @hm, this is one of the only longer sleeved dresses I own (sadly!) I've never quite known what to do with this cowl-ish neckline, but this solution seems to work.

Today's dress of the week! Rainy days are great for dresses - no pant legs to drag in puddles & an excuse to show off cute boots - but bad for clear, bright photos (sorry guys). This outfit is a little halloween, a little throw back to my industrial club days. I had the idea to do something like "goth chick Wednesdays" in addition to dress of the week, but it never took off because I don't have quite enough clothes to pull it off and it sounded like way too much work. Anyway, this is what it would look like if it existed! background: a few years ago i realized i owned a million dresses and really never wore them. so i started making myself wear a dress (or skirt) once a week. i enjoy it now and haven't stopped since! #dressoftheweek #ootd #dress #dotw #blackdress #hottopic #industrial #goth #boots #halloween

Today's dress is that one American Apparel, wear-it-a-million-ways dress that every girl had when it came out. I got it at the Woodbury Commons outlet I believe, and really only ever wore it this way (many of the "million ways" turned out to be awkward or uncomfortable). But I like it - soft, stretchy, and pretty comfy! background: a few years ago i realized i owned a million dresses and really never wore them. so i started making myself wear a dress (or skirt) once a week. i enjoy it now and haven't stopped since! #dressoftheweek #ootd #dress #dotw #red #reddress

Bonus dress of the week! (I posted one on Sunday from my grandma's party, but wearing one again today.) I call this one the "goth-bo-peep". It's from Housing Works thrift store and has some pretty details that you can only see close up. The base is actually brown, with black overlay & off-white print and embroidery.

Dress of the week! This one, funny enough, is from a clearance sale at Hot Topic many years ago. Probably the last thing I ever bought there! background: a few years ago i realized i owned a million dresses and really never wore them. so i started making myself wear a dress (or skirt) once a week. i enjoy it now and haven't stopped since! #dotw #dressoftheweek #dress #red #hottopic #fashion #ootd #me
