Today’s post is about a dress that gave me a jolt of recognition when I saw it on the rail.
It’s a simple black floaty halterneck dress and it felt like I’d been wanting it for ages. I don’t know whether I saw it in its original shop, years ago, or whether I’d seen it in a magazine. But when I spotted it I thought ‘Yes, this,’ and bought it – even though it’s a little bit too big.
I tend to wear bright colours, but I keep a few black items around for those occasions when I want to wear bright accessories, or patterned tights. So it is with this dress. I don’t wear it very often, because it’s a party dress, and a halterneck, which means it’s only practical in the summer, but when I do I’m glad I bought it. Sometimes I even use it as a skirt and wear a top over it.
Have you ever bought something second-hand that you recognise, but you’re not sure from where?
