marco ... polo ... cardi



the look:

top - old jacob
dress - melow by melissa bolduc (a/w 2012)
skirt - melow by melissa bolduc (s/s 2012)
cardi - old h&m
hat - old lillie & cohoe
boots - old cydwoq

the tale:

i finally got around to going back to that store where i got the green cords that i wore recently, to see whether there were other cords that i might be interested in. who am i kidding, i went back to see whether there were stone coloured cords -- i had decided that they would work best with a grey/stone coloured sweater dress that i own -- compared to grey coloured cords. well, there were tan coloured cords, stone coloured cords and grey coloured cords. seeing the tan coloured cords, i decided that they would work better than stone coloured cords with the sweater dress -- i convinced myself that the stone coloured portion of the dress was actually tan coloured. then i had a bit of a dilemma moment -- stone coloured cords or tan coloured cords? i decided that i should let the availability of my size be the determining. that didn't help, because neither the stone coloured cords nor the tan coloured cords were available in my exact size. the stone coloured cords were only available in my waist size (with the leg length being two inches longer than my preferred leg length). the tan coloured cords were only available in my preferred leg length (with the waist being an inch larger than my preferred waist size). but guess what? the grey coloured cords were available in my waist size and preferred leg length. so what do you think i ended up doing?
