A Modern Day Fairy Tale...
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful dress listed in the sale section of Madewell. A small town girl fell in love with this dress one night when she was browsing online, but in an effort in trying to be a good shopper decided to wait until the morning before buying it - she wanted to be extra sure that she really loved it. That night all she could dream about was it's detailed beauty, it's amazing fun pockets, and it's uber-cute ruching on the shoulders.
This small town girl woke up with excitement because she knew she was going to add a new favorite piece to her wardrobe. But then - DISASTER! The dress was no longer listed on Madewell!! It was a travesty of travesties and left her broken-hearted. She searched Smashion and Ebay, to no avail. But as all broken hearts eventually do, her heart mended itself, but never forgot the uber-cute dress.
THEN, on a lark last week, this small town girl was again perusing the Madewell website, and what did she find? THE DRESS!! IN HER SIZE!! It was fate! It was meant to be! And 2 minutes later the dress was purchased and on its way to her wardrobe!
In case you couldn't tell, I really really love this dress. I can't wait to style it in a myriad of ways! The only thing I need to be on watch for is static problems - I had a minor crisis in walking in it to work the other day (did I mention that I now WALK to work?) - but thankfully had a long coat on! But beyond that, I think this is going to be a closet favorite for a long time! :)
