Spring Pastels

Hope you are all well. Thank you so much forĀ  the taking the time to read our blog. Sitting at home for a week was dangerous for my bank account because all I did was walk around the mall buying stuff I don’t need or would not be functional in my wardrobe. I think that is one of many draw backs of frequenting the mall.

Z & A 3-2015 Macungie -2427Prior to starting medical school, there is a ceremony called a white coat ceremony where a faculty member places your white coat on you for the first time. I was a poor college graduate, with a very low budget. I think that is when my love for bargain shopping started.

Z & A 3-2015 Macungie -2405I went to Ann Taylor and saw this dress (about 7 years ago). Oh, it was love at first sight and this dress has not let me down since then. The quality is beyond excellent and I have gotten my money’s worth and more. It was a little pricey but so worth it and ever so functional.

I think during the time in medical school, due to the limited funds, I wore it to every function. So literally for 4 years, for any important function, this was my go to dress, so you can only imagine how many times this dress appeared on Facebook on different dates (fashion faux pars).

Z & A 3-2015 Macungie -2458I am still not ready to retire this dress, maybe when it is too small, but even then I may just keep it in my closet.

Z & A 3-2015 Macungie -2460I love everything about this dress, the fit, the pattern and colors and most especially I love how it works for any occasion.
