My pink dress met an untimely death by washing machine and so this post is an ode to our last time out together. I found this little number at the thrift store a few years ago and I have to say it is one of the extremely few times that I've spotted a dress that didn't require a ridiculous amount of alterations to make it look even one iota as if it wasn't straight from (waaaaaay) back in the day. Most times it's just a sea of hideous floral prints, lengths down to the ankles, shoulder pads coupled with double-breasted closures; so to see this solid print number that needed a few tweaks with POCKETS and I was sold.
On our last outing, I decided to add just a hint of edge with the black accessories and best of all, my Target score. So, do you remember the whole Jason Wu for Target release? I was at the store bright and early and it was crowded. I only walked out with a dress that I ended up returning and while I was at the store returning it, I spotted this very bag on the rack and bought it. And then I had buyer's remorse and returned that too. It must have been fate when I spotted this during a recent visit sitting all by its lonesome on the shelf. I almost left without buying it, but when the cashier told me it was $15, how could I not take it? I can now put this one in the category of it didn't get away and is now mine. Life is good when that happens.
