One Dress So Many Thoughts

I have so many, and somewhat contradictory thoughts about this dress. First, I've had it for quite some time, around summer of 2008! So, there is definitely some nostalgia around that time of my life and how this dress represents that. But, it's so hard to keep nice, hence the wrinkles... I have to dry clean it every time I wear it because even water droplets can leave a stain if left too long... It's distinctive without being in-your-face flashy, which is right UP my style alley. This ruffle-neckline gives a nod to the current off-the-shoulder/caplet trends we're seeing now, so it's "in style" in its own unique way--again very much my style MO. I'm not really loving the fit... there's a LOT of material around the bust and I'm already "voluminous" in that area to start, so having extra fabric makes me appear even more busty, which isn't horrible, but I know I can cut a finer figure see here. And, even though this frock is unique and lends itself to some of-the-moment trends, I'm not sure it suits my current style as it did my '08 aesthetic. Like, this is VERY ladylike and elegant, and I have a half-shaved head... Not that I can't be ladylike and elegant, but I'm not sure I'm THIS type of ladylike and elegant. 

Told you, so many thoughts...
