A Tale of a Dress That Won't Go Out of Style

I love this dress! The lace, the way the flowers on the print gradually gather at the bottom, the silk-like material, and the fit and flare...it's all perfect in my book. What would you say if I told you I purchased it over five years ago? Yeah, this dress literally will not go out of style. And Modcloth agrees as they still sell it to this day! 

When I wore it the first time (back in 2011), I remember thinking it was the perfect fit and I hope I have it for years to come. Thankfully, I have taken really good care of it and we are still going strong with no signs of our last wear in site. I wish I could say that about all my clothes. ;)

Do you have dresses that are over five years old and still in style? How many years do you generally get out of clothing? I think my average is about three years for most clothing, especially if I wear and wash it often.
