And if you ARE surprised, well. You must be new.
So I was on my way home from work this morning, and I had to stop by my favorite store (aka Goodwill) to find a pair of shorts for summer camp. Because I only have one pair, and believe me… even though it’s Washington and rain happens all the time here, I would die without shorts. I’m pretty sure.
And I found a pair. But that’s not exciting.
I was distracted by the dress section. Slightly. I may or may not have tried on about twenty dresses. I also may or may not have bought one of them.
And I know I said I wasn’t going to do a fashion post today, but then I found this dress.
Ignore the dorky socks look. I was so close to buying this, but in the end I decided that it was just a tad bit too short for me, and finding a slip to go beneath (up close it’s see-through) was too much work.
And you have NO idea how much I wanted to buy this. No idea. But it was a size ten, which is 2-3 sizes too big for me. I had to clench the fabric at the back just to make it look decent for the picture, and I was sorely tempted to just buy it ant take it in. But I’m not a sewing kind of person, so I let it be. I have dreamt of a dress exactly this color and shape for YEARS.
I guess there IS a downside to losing weight.
But I’m sure I’ll find something equally fantastic to wear.
Also, I bought an adorable notebook for summer camp use:
Oh! And I almost forgot, brooches. Also found at Goodwill. I’m trying to build up my brooch collection,because I think they’re a fantastic accessory. I now own several gold animals:
I’m off to do laundry, clean my room, and make sure I have everything I need for summer camp. I hope you all have a beautiful week while I’m gone!
I’ll see you Saturday.
