I'll preface this post by saying that Total Divas on E! is one of my guilty pleasures. I'm not ashamed! During an episode I saw Brie Bella wearing this beautiful and unique looking star print dress. Instantly I started searching for the dress and after scouring I found out that it was Free People's Star Foil Jasper Midi Dress. I shouldn't be too surprised because Brie wears FP often. My next step, (as always) was to find it on eBay. Where I found this dress brand new for $30. A steal considering this dress used to be $168.
When I got this dress in the mail I was hesitant. Did I make a mistake? The dress had cutouts, a trend I've always avoided. The more I started thinking the more I started worrying that I had made a mistake. So I hung it back up in my closet for some time apart. I think my fear was because this dress is somewhat difficult to put on, and I didn't put it on properly the first time I tried it on. Nevertheless, I eventually packed it up, and took it to my apartment in Manhattan.
Months later I tried it on again, and instantly fell back in love with it. Wondering why I was ever hesitant. All the ambivalence melted away. I've been in a fashion comfort zone for quite sometime and this dress is thrilling and unpredictable for me.
Words are truly inadequate to convey my gratitude to my sweet friend Emma from Emma York Photography. Her photography and vision are truly invaluable to JMC. Emma and her husband recently moved to the sweetest place in Wichita, follow her and her journey on Instagram.
In the mean time I hope you all have a beautiful summer filled with large iced chais, laughter, and open toed shoes.
