The way I see it, yesterday’s outfit is my extroverted side, and today is all introvert. A subtle color in an intricate texture and a demure length. I love that this dress makes me feel like I’m embracing my quieter side. There’s a power in quiet — people have to listen more closely when you’re quiet and your words can often carry more weight. Quiet isn’t silent; it isn’t censored. It’s about being intentional and deliberate. Putting this dress on makes me feel powerful, but without having to tell anyone about it.
When I first saw this dress on the Forever 21 website, I passed it by because I thought the color wouldn’t look very good on me. Then I went on a shopping spree and decided to try it on because a midi dress was on my list anyway. I’m so glad I did because I actually think it’s my favorite article of clothing I purchased in June! The peach shade is warm enough that it picks up the pink tones in my skin instead of clashing with them and the result is 100% romantic.
So now I just need 15 more dresses in this length, right? What outfits make you feel powerful?
