I cheated

On so many levels, I should not have this dress.  I was not supposed to go shopping until I was finished listing batch one of my esty stuff, but I had an acupuncture appointment in town and my car just drove to the shop after!  I was only supposed to be shopping FOR MY SHOP, and promised that even though I love this dress I would sell it, but I cant. I am full on rewarding myself for my incredible will power (I tell myself, although it is clearly lack of willpower that brought it to my possession) Oh well.  you win some battles and you lose some. Interestingly enough I waited till after I listed this morning to actually put it on, ethics you know, and the light shining through the skylight this time of day gave me a little like Halo or something! My decision has been blessed by sunshine (yes I am still trying to justify this whole thing but its actually REALLY good news for you since I found some stellar stuff!)

I still have some company and so I will keep this a bit brief since we are eager to get over to the Bowling Alley since thats what we do for fun here when we are not shopping for vintage.  Hope you are having a very lovely Thursday!

COMMENT OF THE DAY: Yes,  They were smiling on me!  Thanks for the validations everyone!

Sometimes when you find yourself compelled to drive to the thrift store, it is because, for whatever reason, the thrift gods have decided to smile upon you! They wanted you to have this dress!

Brittany said...

In your defense.. can't you just imagine shooting pictures in a field of flowers when the sun is shining down in the middle of summer with this dress? Or pictures in front of a plantation house? Oh, the possibilities!

Brandee said...

you definitely cannot sell it. I saw the photo and said "oh my God" outloud so...don't sell it. Wear it every day!
