In all my shopping years on this planet, I don't think I have ever bought anything decent in the post Christmas sales. Do I really want a ratty last season bikini, just because it's €10 cheaper? Eh, no. No, I do not! However, when I spotted this teal and gemstone collar encrusted dress in Warehouse, I just couldn't resist. This was my first purchase of the year, perhaps the dress is a symbol of how shiny, bright and sparkly 2011 will be? I hope so!
This dress makes the rest of my clothes look dull and lifeless. I love how demure, but bold it is. So, a belated New Years resolution- buy more colour! After all, colour me beautiful is the motto this Spring/ Summer. This dress will play a special role for me on Thursday. It will be my graduation dress. Graduating in teal and sparkle, yes, I cannot wait.
So, what was your first purchase this new year? Do you like my dress, or is it a bit too bright for your taste? As always, I love to know what you think!
