I'm generally someone who stays fairly within her comforts zones when it comes to clothing. I know what I like to wear, and I'll buy it over and over again. A plaid shirt, a white lacey dress, a great black hat. Change from that can seem a little daunting. But then every once and a while something that is quite different than the rest of my "norms" reaches out and grabs me, and I just can't walk away from it. That's what happened with this dress.
We have what we call a "onsie" rack in our store. They're pieces that we only have one of, whether because the rest of the item sold well and that's all that's left, or because it was returned and we never had it to begin with. I was searching for a dress to wear to NYC last week and this dress almost literally reached from the rack and grabbed me. I resisted even trying it on at first because, orange?! I have always avoided oranges when it comes to clothing. But my attemts to resist were futile, and I fell completely in love with it.
So I learned a very valuable lesson... sometimes change can be scary, but sometimes when change comes in the form of a super comfy dress that has pockets and a super fun cut out in the back, then change is pretty awesome.
Have you branched out recently and gave something you might normally not a try?
