What do you keep in your closet but never wear?

What is in your closet that you never wear?

Oh my goodness what a loaded question.

It would have to be this gorgeous, GORGEOUS maxi dress I bought on a whim, love and still love:

Why don’t you wear it?

My lifestyle right now, is not maxi-dress + 4″ heels conducive. I need an EVENT to wear this to. I am dying for ANY even right now, I’m even planning on crashing Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s wedding just to trot this number out.

For real.

Why do you keep it?

…because it is beautiful. It truly is. The colours, the print, I know I will wear it, with those gorgeous sandaled heels ONE DAY, and it has to happen. It just has to.

I’m considering wearing it, and just putting a sweatshirt over it, and trying to make it more “casual” for an outing to meet girlfriends in summer or something but … it really is a stunning piece meant for an event, at least a cocktail thing.

It’s just too beautiful for words.

I have other items I keep in the closet and don’t wear for similar reasons — too formal for work, but those other pieces I can wear them like pencil skirts by putting a casual sweater over top, and dressing it way down.

This one requires 4″ heels…

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Please do not try to casual-down your gorgeous gown! I agree that the day (or night) will come when the perfect event arises and you will look stunning!

    As for me, I also have a couple unworn dresses. One was purchased for New Years Eve. Another for a wedding last fall that the weather didn’t cooperate with. It’s a cute dress and I know I’ll wear it eventually so I’m not worried.

      I’ll have to save it, stay in shape and wear it to some event of Little Bun’s HAHA
