Sequins and Sea Breezes: Shades of Gray

Shades of Gray

2/28/2014



I'm just going to come right out and say it. I love pockets. There, it's out and known and now I feel better. Seriously though, I'm obsessed with things with pockets. Dresses, rompers, shirts, skirts, heck even wedding gowns! I was perusing the Sosie website when I came across this dress. I liked the print but wasn't sold on the structure of the dress at first. Then I clicked on it and went to look at more pictures and realized.... IT HAD POCKETS. Done deal. Purchased right then and there and never looked back. When I got it in the mail I still wasn't sold on the structure but when I tried it on I definitely liked it a lot more. It's super comfy and made really well. The material is a nicer, heavier fabric which isn't necessarily great for those ridiculously hot Florida summer days but it does make me feel like it will last longer. And... did I mention it has pockets?? Yeah, it totally does. I don't really know why I have an obsession with pockets. I think I've narrowed it down to two potential reasons; 1. I ALWAYS have lip balm with me. It's my #1 thing I cannot live without. I will literally stop by and buy a new one if I leave the house accidentally without mine or it gets lost.  So pockets make it easier for me to know where my obsession is at all times.  2. I can be somewhat socially awkward. I get nervous in large social situations occasionally and I never know what to do with my hands. I have a habit of crossing my arms but I've realized that makes me look bored or annoyed. Neither of which I usually am so that makes it even more awkward when people ask "are you bored?". Pockets make it so I have something to do with my hands when I don't know what else to do! Still probably not the greatest look but at least you can kinda look cool with your hands in your pockets. There's not really any way to make crossing your arms look anything other than you're bored, annoyed, irritated or cold. Add that in with my occasional BRF (bitchy resting face) and I'm totally screwed. Am I the only one that has a fashion obsession for random reasons? 

Have a great weekend dolls!
