Corey Lynn Calter's Bilberry Dress (size XS)
I've blogged about this dress before. You know what the problem is? My husband doesn't like it but I do. So where to wear it? Too sexy for the playground or work but wouldn't wear it for date night since hubby doesn't love it. I'm having a hard time letting this one go since crochet dresses seem to be big right now it makes me feel very Brigitte Bardot...
Flickering Slip Dress (size 8)
There's a story with this one. Got it for $20 because there was a small stain on the front. It is a size 8 which is way too big but I had the tailor's do some pinning (that's why the hem looks CRAZY! So, lots of alterations means lots of dinero to have it look good. It's such a sweet dress but when a $20 bargain becomes an $80 or so project, hmm... is it still a bargain?
Clipped Cities Blouse (size 2)
It's hard to see the details on this one - laser cut sleeves, accordion pleating on the back, lovely. It is polyester but it doesn't feel like polyester. And I love the color. My husband thinks it makes me look a bit wide from the front and he's probably right but I love the blousey blouse and skinny pants look. Oh, in the last picture that is not my butt making it stick out that far - I forgot to take something out of my back pocket.
Part of the reason it's hard to return something is because I know that once I return it, it's gone. These items are out of stock and this was probably my last chance. Because they are "bargains" it also makes it hard to let go. But the real question is - do I love it? do I really want it? do I NEED it? or do I just love getting a good bargain?
Questions I haven't entirely answered for myself but love to hear the community's thoughts...
