Celebrating the No-Reason Occasion

A New York Love Affair :: Orange Dress

Have you ever bought something off a vision? For a party you thought it would be fun to throw, or a vacation you dreamed about taking? Well I have. Quite a few times actually… Buying things for no reason is a bit of a specialty of mine. I’m a grade A rationalizer, and this dress was the latest victim.

I bought this cotton candy-colored number at a boutique near my old apartment earlier this summer. It was purchased with a vision – this is the perfect dress for my eventual housewarming party at my eventual new apartment! {swipes card}. The problem is, I didn’t even have a new apartment at the time (minor detail). And now that I do, I realize just how much work needs to be done before I’m even in a place to HOST a housewarming party. (Sidetone: it’s part of the reason I’ve been so MIA lately … way too many hours lost in the black hole of online furniture shopping). By the time I’m ready to have a housewarming party there will likely be snow on the ground, and I’ll have bought 7 other new dresses for 7 other non-existent occasions. 

So today, I’m celebrating the no-reason occasion. A day to wear a pretty dress just because.

For those of you that have been following along for awhile, you’ll know that pink is generally my go to hue. I’m broadening my scope by introducing some bright oranges into the mix. They go so well with sun-kissed skin in the summer, and can make a real statement when paired with a pop of contrasting color.

So no, there is no housewarming party on the horizon, but when there is – you’ll be the first to know! I hope to celebrate the only way I know how – with champagne and another new dress! Cheers!
