I bought a cute dress yesterday to put over leggings. I hate change rooms and so I didn't try it on. I just took the size I normally wear with the thought that if it doesn't fit, I'll just exchange it.
I put it on this morning, looked in the mirror and my face dropped...into a smile.
It was TOO BIG!!
Well fuck me. I have not experienced that in, well, years!
I did my happy jig and beamed down the stairs to the man who was drinking coffee and playing PS2 Guitar Hero.
"What do you think?"
"It's too big for you!"
"Exactly!! Oh my God! Do you realise what you have just said to me?"
"It's too big?"
"Yeeesss!!!" I break out into 'Hallelujah!' and dance around the room a little.
"Shit, I should have just said that every time you ask me "what do you think?"...it would have saved me a lot of agony over 5 years."
"Ha! You're funny! Let's take a moment. It's. too. biiiig!"
I have had a permanent grin on my face the entire day!
Now. I'd like to take a minute to address clothing shop owners who have changing rooms.
I am no expert, although I am the typical gal who loves clothes and accessories, so here is my question.
Why the hell are there bright, unflattering lights that show up every lump, bump and pore?
If I had to own a store with change rooms, I'd find "thin" mirrors, with soft attractive lighting and enough hooks to hang up all the clothes plus enough space to move around in.
I'm just saying.
Blondie Boutique. Nice ring to it. Oh and all my blogging friends would get free clothes.
Just as well I don't have a store. I'd be bankrupt before I open! Hahaha!
Oh and...I am seriously looking for a cotton dress that can be casually worn that looks like this - anyone know of a place??
