I’m not in Greek Life and I have never been to brunch with a group of girls, ever.

But I was going through the box of dresses that I’d left at my mom’s house when I went to college, and this (very brunch-worthy) dress is gorgeous, from the shift cut to the lace detailing to its unabashedly preppy vibe. Let’s take a moment to appreciate Hollister’s aesthetic before it tried to be Forever 21: Beach Edition. Take a good look at that structure and quality because damn, does that even exist anymore?

I’m surprised that this dress was in there in the first place, considering that high school me had a very different aesthetic, but I’m glad I found it! I’ll be taking it back to Florida for sure.

Not that Forever 21: Beach Edition isn’t cute or anything.
