Silly Fashion Goals

Goal:  Find an occasion to wear this outfit!

This one isn’t quite so whacky as the jumpsuit (and does the word jumpsuit ever carry positive connotations?) but it is…bold?

I dunno…intellectually, I understand that this dress is probably dreadful, but I really, really like it. I suppose I’m probably too old to go around getting dressed like I’m playing dress-up, but I think I’m going to have to wear this dress to one of the sillier parties I may attend at some point this year.

And of course, the one I’m trying to find an excuse to wear.

I mean honestly, what’s the point of owning weird old clothes like this unless you wear them at least sometimes?
