White Lace Dress

dress and headband: topshop (dress-old)
shoes: dr.martens (old-sale)
necklace: rock'n'rose
silver rings: asos

Ahhh this dress is so old! It's one of the few items I actually still like/wear that I've owned for longer than a year. I remember picking it up over 3 years ago when my boyfriend of 2 weeks at the time (now my fiance!) took me away for the weekend for the first time (to Blackpool!) so I ran round Topshop like a woman possessed trying to find holiday outfits and ended up spending about half my wage in my 15 minute break from work! And now here I am wearing the same dress with my engagement ring! I can always remember what outfits I wore to any special occasions or places I've been to and I love how an item of clothing can keep those memories with them and bring me right back to that time or place, like the same way a particular scent can, or a piece of music.

Do you own any items of clothing that hold any fond memories?
