Style: In A Feminine Light

Pretty ensembles for ladylike looks.

There are some pieces in my closet that will always remain there, I believe. No matter how I may age, no matter how my style may alter a little, they will always be there. Maybe it is due to sentimental value—the memories attached with the pieces that hang there that come to mind each time I open the doors—or maybe it is because they are far too pretty they are impossible to give away.








It always comes down to the prettiest pieces—feminine dresses usually. And the very last picture within this post reminded me of a particular favorite dress that was a graduation gift, worn only once, but its memory will last forever… do you have some treasured pieces like these that you cannot part with?

  1. Every single one of these pieces is sooooo beautiful - I can't pick a favorite! This is the best editorial I've seen in a long time, so thank you for sharing! Bookmarking this for sure.

  2. My mom has made so many pieces of clothing for me. I have kept several of them, along with a few that she made for herself when she was younger. I even have a few pieces that my grandmother made for my mom. Those items stay in my closet, regardless.

  3. I used to save them, and this post reminds me so much of my younger self. But then they start to fade and discolor and I realized it would be better to give them away to someone who could get pleasure out of them than hang on to them--so slowly I purged my pretty dresses one by one. But I love that you remind me to remember them!

    1. That is true as well :) I hope to have a daughter one day who might like to have my favorites, but knowing my luck, I will have boys! xx

  4. I love this editorial, absolutely gorgeous! I definitely hang onto those special pieces. Clothing captures a little moment in time and it's wonderful to be able to look back on a dress or a pair of shoes and remember what inspired you at that time in life.

    Love your blog!
