I’ve been pushing myself to shop my closet more, especially on those “I have nothing to wear days!”, but probably more importantly “special events.” I feel like almost all of my friends at this point are doing Rent the Runway or RTR unlimited and are showing up to special events in very expensive “new” outfits. I’m not knocking Rent the Runway, by the way, I’ve used it myself for my fair share of weddings. It’s just very fascinating to see how this is shifting everyday wear too. If anything, I feel a subconscious added pressure of not re-wearing outfits for parties, get togethers, and events (big and small). I’m really trying to fight this feeling and the feeling of needing a whole new wardrobe when I’m feeling uninspired. I digress…
Enter one of the cream Celeste dress. I originally got this in navy and missed getting it in cream because I wasn’t sure how often I’d wear it. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who avoids white dresses because of a) the limited “season” and b) how many wedding-events pop up where white as a non-bride is a no-go. (I swear every summer I think, “Why are all the cute dresses WHITE!”)
By the time I realized I really wanted the cream dress and had seen it worn a few times by friends, it was sold out!!! I ended up finding it in my size on Poshmark and then… naturally, they brought it back! Here’s how I wore it in Paris and here’s how I wore it this past fall.
I dressed it up a bit this time around for a slightly elevated look. Wouldn’t recommend wearing it to anything wedding-related, unless you’re the bride, but still! Winter white is possible.
