Fiery

When it comes to shopping and fashion, I never hold back. There might be certain instances in life when I hold back but it rarely applies in fashion. When I like love something, I go after it!


That is how I felt about this dress. When I first saw this online, it did not instantly win me over like most of the dresses that I do have in my closet. It's undeniable that the color drew me in. But I had been leaning towards more practical buys as of late - and that means investing on pieces that I can re-wear or re-mix with several other pieces. It also means investing in dresses that could be easily transitioned from day to night. 

However, it seems as though I've completely neglected all these golden shopping rules I have set for myself with this purchase. This dress, albeit dramatic, is not the most practical buy. It is hot like hell in this part of the world and that means I would only probably be able to wear this one during the night or on colder days. Plus, it will probably require a bit more creative flair to mix and match with other pieces. 

And yet, there is no single ounce of doubt in my body when I donned this dress. The fabric is cotton so it is ultra comfortable. The fabric also clings to the body without hugging it too much - it provides just the right amount of shape.
