Little Navy Dress Worn to Work for the First Time.

This Little Navy Dress... that looks like something any of the Kardashian Sisters would wear, was a (early January) 2012 purchase. I gifted myself 4 new dresses and some accessories from T Box when I got my job (here in Albania). This dress was part of that purchase. It is very structured, modern and classic at the same time. Sexy and simple. I love the sleeves and the exposed zipper on the back. I also love the ponte material which washes easily and doesn't wrinkle much. As a matter of fact, I got one in a dark red too. However the red one I had to get a bigger size because sizes S were sold out. So that one still has the tags and hangs in my closet. It needs to make a trip to the seamstress. I might add pockets to that one and maybe alter the syle a tiny bit. Though I love multiples and if there is something I like and must have, I might own it in 2, 3, 4 or even 5 different colors or patterns. As you can tell I had fun the day I wore this dress cause I sure as heck took a lot of photos. =D

But anyway I have always wanted a dress like this. Bebe has come up with several similar ones designed by Kim Kardashian. BCBG had some similar ones as well. As did Armani Exchange. I actually own a similar structured dress (like this) from Armani X. I needed a little Navy number in my closet however and this was perfect. Plus I went nuts at the store that day because they had a buy one get one free sale so I got four dresses for the price of 2. =) Speaking of T Box: it is an European company which originates from Turkey and they have branched it out all over Europe. So far, I like what they have there. The prices are not too high, I would say they are medium-priced for the quality and for the styles they sell. But I am not one to ever pay full price on clothing anyway. This dress has become a favorite I have added to my closet and to my own dress collection. I plan on wearing it completely differently next time it makes an appearance at my blog.

And speaking of dresses: I am challenging myself to wear A DRESS, EVERY DAY THIS WEEK! I am doing this to 1) celebrate Spring because it is finally here (and I think it's here to stay this time); 2) I have a ton of dresses and need to wear them more often; & 3) because this is quite a special week as I celebrate the day and date I was born. So I am treating myself to dresses for this week. I am wearing a pretty floral dress by Roberto Cavalli today so I think I am starting off in a good way. ;-)
