You Say Toma-toe, I Say Toma-tow
I spotted the dress that I wore today at Urban Outfitters a couple of weeks ago -- it may have actually been when I went to The Clothing Show. It screamed me (to me): the dropped waist, the plaid, the school girl look The difficult thing wasn't deciding whether to get the dress -- how could I not get it. No, the difficult thing was deciding on the size to get. I have a tendency to buy on the large size, and I am continuously reminding myself to check for indicators of a correct size (e.g., does it fit through the shoulders?). In the case of this dress, I think that I switched from one size to a larger size at least a dozen times before I finally came out of the fitting room settled on a size. In case anyone is wondering, I settled on the smaller size, although not before the larger size gave the smaller size a run for its money.
I am wearing an APC Madras dress from Urban Outfitters, an old Zara sweater, old Lululemon leggings, old socks from an off-price store and old Hunter boots. My coat is old by Kensie and my scarf is old from the Gap.
