Add This Classic Piece – Shirt Dress

I bought this dress a while a ago..  on one of those days you just go into stores (that you can’t afford) and try on anything that you like…just for fun…

Ever do that? Ok…maybe it’s just me…

So I went into Club Monaco and I saw this dress that was super chic and really outside my really casual style box at the time. I tried it on and walked out of the fitting room…and two seperate ladies (who didn’t work there) were like “Oh my gosh! That dress looks AMAZING!”.

Hmmmmm…
So I looked at the price tag and it said $250. Eeep!

But you know what? I bought it. It made me feel beautiful and powerful and I just knew I’d get lots of wear out of it.

That’s what you call a LOW cost to wear ratio. [cost/# times worn].

I bought it 5 years ago and have worn it at least 5 times or more per year so $250/25 = $10/wear.

Not bad. Especially since (if u picked up that I bought it 5 years ago) this classic shirt dress in black will never go out of style so I can see myself wearing it for many years in the future. That means that the cost per wear will continue to go down.

Classic wardrobe pieces! Preach it sister! As I always say… invest in classics and you’ll never go wrong. Invest a little more in your classic pieces and you can be sure they’ll hold up over that 10 years you’ll be guaranteed to wear it.
