yellowfront

I guess this week is all about pics of me. Hee hoo!

But I had to tell the story of this dress to SOMEONE. And if not you, who?

I bought this dress for $22.50 at F21 a number of weeks ago and didn't try it on until I got home. The top gaped a little and needed alterations, but other than that it seemed cute. I hemmed and hawed on it. Not sure about the color, thought the cut might make me look dumpy, so on and so forth. Eventually i decided to keep it and put it on the alterations pile.

Cut to a week or two later- I still haven't taken my alterations in. I see it on top of the pile and think, "You know, I really have enough yellow clothing- I should just take it back."

So off I go to F21 and pick out a bunch of things to exchange for it (F21 only does store credit for returns). A cute headband, some knee socks, a shirt...take it up to the register only to find that the tag had been removed and they won't take it back. Doh! I must have snapped it off when I had made the decision to keep it.

My work shopping buddy said that the dress will end up being one of my favorites. And whaddaya know? I got it altered last week. I wore it yesterday and got about a million compliments and everyone was asking me where I got it.

The end.



PS. not sure about the "hooters" tights though...
