In my closet hangs a pretty, pleated, flowing, snakeskin dress.
I don't remember the exact date that I first wore it.
I do remember a co-worker commenting on how she missed the "pretty dress memo" when I came to work in it one day. I had that job a decade ago.
This dress has been my Sunday best and business staple. I've worn it as a single person and as a wife. A working professional, and a mother.
It's even been stretched into a maternity dress for the first half of all 3 pregnancies.
It's forgiving like that.
There are periods where I get tired of it and leave it in the back of my closet for a while. But I always end up pulling it out after a bit of time has passed, and thinking, "This is such a great dress."
That's what classics are all about, don't you think?
Do you have a favorite staple that's been in your closet for years?
