The Power of Pockets

ModCloth Dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs Bag, Banana Republic Necklace, Aldo Pumps.

I would like to put on record that I wasn't flipping someone off in that last photo. I would never post a cropped photo of me giving someone the finger. I just keep them in a file on my computer for my own enjoyment... obviously.

You have probably figured out that this was the outfit I wore to the Banana Republic Mad Men launch. Funnily enough the Mad Men line has a very similar cream coloured lace dress. During the event I had a few ladies tell me they liked my dress so I just pointed them in the direction of the lace dress for sale. That's when I learned the power of pockets. Any time I pointed out the Banana Republic dress after receiving a compliment on my dress I heard "I just really like that yours has pockets". I mean, I've seen the power of pockets on Say Yes to the Dress when brides have bought horrible wedding dresses because they had pockets but I hadn't really seen it myself until now.

So my friends, don't ever stress about what to wear again because it honestly doesn't matter. Sew pockets onto it and every lady will love it... like this DIY garbage bag dress with pockets I just made, thanks to the power of pockets it's my new favourite thing in my closet.
