Summer Stripes

This is possibly my favourite dress that I own... and up until these photos were taken, I never wore it. Do any of you have something like that in your closet? Something so special that you don't dare wear it, for fear of ruining it? It's not that it's all that expensive (it's only from Topshop, after all) but maybe because it's Beyonce AND January Jones approved, or because stripes clothing and sleeved mini dresses are my favourite things, so combined it's a dream come true. Anyways, since these photos were taken, I've worn it to any and every event possible.
So, tell me: regardless of price or designer, what is the most special piece in your closet right now?


Topshop Dress (very similar version here, as well)
J.Crew Necklace (similar J. Crew necklaces here and here)

  12. Looove it! My favourite dress is still an old tutu pink one from TopShop. I feel like such a princess rocker in it.

  13. YES I do this too and I have no idea why most of the time! It's almost like I don't want to "waste" that first wear! This is a really gorgeous dress, so it's good to see you wore it.

    I don't have anything in my closet like this now, but it's because I haven't done a lot of fall shopping yet...

  14. You look so gorgeous, this dress is perfect on you and I adore the way you've styled your hair! I have things I do that with too. Years ago I bought a ruffled blush pink dress from Anthropologie and loved it so much I didn't wear it for the entire first year I owned it.

  22. Omg - that dress really is quite fabulous. I find myself drawn to stripes no matter if they are fancied up on a dress or mucho casual in a boat neck tee - I just can't get enough!
