    I totally get you. I love cocktail dresses and formal wear and I find myself falling in love with a dress pretty easily. Unluckily for me I also do not get to wear them alot πŸ™

    Based upon your amazing wedding pics, I’m sure your other wedding-related outfits are quite stunning!

    I can related a bit. Now that I’ve had to relocate to a small town in a rural area and am no longer working, I feel as if the only place I can wear my nicer clothes and not look a little out of place is to church every week.  So, that’s where I tend to dress up the most. I don’t know if that’s an option for you.

    Other than that, perhaps your Darling Husband could take you out for a special date night — a fancy dinner — once a month or so for the next few months so that you can wear your pretty clothes and accessories. πŸ™‚

    Those dresses will probably be collecting dust in my closet…. :-/

    Mine aren’t super formal, so I anticipate being able to wear them places.  But they’re all white/ivory, so I won’t be wearing them to weddings or other people’s wedding-related events.

    ugh.  My town is the same way—-no where to dress up.  Nothing to do!  It is sooooooo boring.  It is taken over by primarily corporate restaurants.  Literally NOTHING else to do except the frat boy bars or the hillbilly bars.  UGH!!!!!  I have so many nice pieces that I wear when I’m in Greece, and HATE seeing them tucked away in the back of the closet.  πŸ™  such a shame.  Maybe you could host a formal dinner party at your house with a dress code, so all of your friends/family can use the clothes that are probably accumulating dust in their closets too!!  I only have a small apt here, otherwise that’s what I’d be doing.


    If you lived near me, I’d dress up with you!  lol

    @BostonBaby:  Hmm. Well, there’s nothing to stop you from planning a special, romantic dinner for your Darling Husband at home, with candles, mood music, some scattered rose petals, your best china, crystal, flatware, nice table linens … You could surprised him with a romantic evening, and, when he gets home he would find the lights dim, the candles lit, a gourmet dinner ready to go on the table, and you in one of your gorgeous, completely accessorized outfits! It may not be exactly the same as going out to a social event with other people, but you can still enjoy wearing your awesome clothes, and he can enjoy looking at you! πŸ™‚
