Dress: Goodwill (J. Crew) — Oxfords: Payless — Socks: Sock Dreams (Bastia Comfort Top Crew in Wisteria) — Bracelet: Solano Stroll — Earrings: Hand-me-down
I had a vision for this outfit, and that vision was “lavender and gray.”
A pretty simple vision for a pretty simple outfit! I like it, though, even if it got a bit hot later on in the day for socks and closed-toe shoes.
I was pretty dang pleased when I found this cute J. Crew dress at my favorite Goodwill, and I was even more pleased when it actually fit me despite being a size S on the tags. (I can sometimes fit into a Small on top, but my hips left Small territory ages ago.)
There’s your lesson for the day, kids: tags don’t mean shit sometimes. I mean, if you’ve ever worn clothing at all–and especially if you’ve had the special joy of having to deal with a number of plus-size clothing lines–you probably know how laughable the variations can be, to the point of meaninglessness. Will this size L skirt actually fit me when it arrives in the mail? Who knows, let’s find out!
When was the last time size roulette actually worked out in your favor?
