The Moral Wardrobe: Blinded by the Bright



Ethical Details: Dress – Tamga Designs; Tank Top – ancient; Shoes – Nisolo Huarache
Open back dresses are flattering, but who besides travel bloggers and beach bums has a context to where them? I repeated this question to myself for about a year before deciding to throw practicality to the wind and buy the dress anyway. 
I had a bright yellow dress in college that I wore constantly even after my friend’s roommate told me it was the ugliest thing he’d ever seen. Yellow, especially yards of it, is such a cheerful and satisfying thing to wear that it didn’t really bother me that some random guy thought it was gross. I eventually grew out of that dress and donated it to a thrift shop, but I never forgot how I felt wearing it. 
This Tamga Designs dress was just what I wanted except that darn open back. But I decided it would work perfectly well with a tank top or t-shirt on normal days. And maybe someday when I go on a tropical vacation, I’ll get a chance to wear it as intended. 
In case you hadn’t noticed, I never alter the way I wear clothes to portray them more elegantly on the blog. So the bra straps are showing and that’s ok.
