Of all the pieces in my closet, this green dress elicits the most compliments. When I wear it, strangers go out of their way to tell me how much they like it.
My husband, on the other hand, can’t stand it.
I bought it 9 years ago to wear to my bridal shower and have worn it every year since then. I think it’s safe to say I’ve gotten my money’s worth.
My favorite thing about this dress is the top is hemmed with a belt. That detail is what instantly drew me to it. And while I hate that it gets covered up by the leather jacket, I also love a great billowy dress with a form-fitting leather jacket.
And really you can recreate this look with so many different short jacket/billowy maxi dress combinations. It’s so seasonally perfect for cooler spring days, yet totally maintenance free since you don’t have to shave your legs ! :-D
In my case it’s best suited for a girls night out and definitely not date night or I’d never hear the end of it *rolls eyes.
*Remember, I said I bought it NINE years ago. Which doesn’t seem real because both myself and the dress still look fantastic ;) I got it at VictoriaSecret when they used to see fancy dresses online.
