blogger in little white dress

all white dresses the new lbd?

Dresses, hats, lost scarves and bags littered the floor. It’s apparent music is playing loudly somewhere nearby, but it’s muffled by a few doorways between. A seemingly lost but determined girl dodges jagged heels and scattered garments in a maze formation. It’s closet cleaning day. An activity that commences in my home at least every few months, this is the time when ever item is pulled from its place (or misplacement), steamed, sorted and either refreshed back into place or discarded for the girlfriends to sort through in the upcoming days.
