Mandala victory

White blazer ENC, similar for less than 20.00 USD here 
Brown hand bag vintage Lancel, similar
Strapless brown dress Marni, other strapless dress option with mandalas
Two drop fake pearl earrings, similar
Sarah Jessica Parker SJP velvet block heel shoes

The moment I laid my eyes on this dress I thought "mandalas", while I have no idea what these circles really are, the description seemed to fit. Purchased in January 2016, its been sitting in the closet waiting to worn until today. The reason was it did not fit. If fit when I bought it and then it didn't, so it's actually a tiny victory that I can wear it today. 
Is there something in your closet that you are not wearing because it does not fit? What is it? Will you keep it until its fits again or are you just throwing it out on your next closet edit?

Marni, nice! It's a really cute dress. I don't buy things that need altering - I know I'm too lazy to get it done, 99% of the time!

It is a lovely dress! I don't tend to keep things I don't fit into - if I can't fit I'm not going to keep it around to upset me every time I try to wear it, haha. I had enough of that during and post pregnancy. I don't have many pieces that are fitted though so most of my pieces I can gain or loose a bit and they still work, which is good as I think body fluctuations are normal :)

If something doesn't fit, I end up trying to alter it to make it fit. I've had my mom add panels in skirts and such to make them bigger for me in the past!!

I think mandalas are the perfect description for the pattern of your beautiful dress! And as far as I know I don't have anything in my closet that doesn't fit :)

Glad that this dress fits now and that you got to wear it. I like it with the white blazer. I probably have a pair of jeans that are too tight hanging around in my closet. But I might eventually just donate/sell them.

This is a really nice dress and the pattern is gorgeous! I am glad you kept it and yay for it fitting! I have bought clothes in the past that fit and then with my pregnancy and junk food junkin' stopped fitting! Lol 😂 While I haven't gotten rid of those particular clothes I am not sure when they'll fit me again. For the moment, I love them enough to have them stay!
