Case of the Vanishing Dress

5.09.12d{Belt: Similar | Blazer: Similar | Flats: Similar}
I wore this outfit a few weeks ago and instagrammed it. (side note: I love how I can make any social medium a verb.) Unfortunately we didn’t get photos that day because that’s when I caught the flu. And as I’ve said before — if it wasn’t photographed, it didn’t happen.
This is the dress that almost didn’t happen. I saw it a few months ago at Gap and had my eye on it for a while. And then it was gone. Like not even on the sale rack gone. It had vanished. One day when I was at another Gap store (judge me, it’s fine.), the dress was there — only one in my size on sale. I snatched it up quickly and held it aside in the dressing room. When I got to my dressing room, a few things were missing. I kid you not, the dress was gone. The nice Gap lady told me that someone else took some things to try on. Um, what? Doesn’t that girl know the sisterhood rules of shopping: you don’t take things from other people’s dressing rooms, especially dresses that they’ve dreamed about their whole lives. There are few things that I get confrontational about but clothing — I will throw down
Luckily the dress didn’t fit the mystery girl who I never got to front, so I am now the proud owner of a crazy print dress of my dreams. (Although dear mystery girl — you have great taste, if I do say so myself.)

    Someone took a dress you'd picked out to try on themself?! That's down right rude! Though, it is gorgeous – such a fabulous print! Xo

    Ha I was hoping the story would end in a West Side Story type battle, how could someone even do that? Glad you got the dress. Your hair looks super cute like that too, I'm having braid envy
