Acquiring this dress was a bit of an ordeal however. I had just gotten a job at a pizza place last summer, but it was only 2 days a week (about $160 weekly.) I was also saving up for a trip to British Columbia and was on a spending freeze. I had come across this dress in a size 6 (my size!) in on an online swap group for $250. EEK! Not so much the price, because it's totally worth it, but just the unlikelihood! I e-mailed the girl right away and asked if she would take payment installments but it had sold. NO. I was crushed. Then in February, I came across one in a size 2 on eBay. Totally not my size, and it actually had some stains down the front of it. They were even visible in the eBay photos.
I have a bit of an active imagination so I try not to think about what it could be. But... my dress! For $120! I still had no money, so I asked if she could hold it until I got paid. Then, ta da! Mine. I just have to do a lot of wiggling to get into it. In my opinion, if it zips, it fits! I don't believe in sizes. Sizes schmizes.
Crazy part was, I saw another one listed a few months later (in a size 2 again!) and I also bid on that one. I'm a wee bit of a nutter methinks.
calivintage wore) but what's the point? I'm not breaking any new ground by wearing the exact same thing another blogger wore (although it does look really nice styled that way.) So I tried this green tights look. It's a bit Christmas-y but I think I like it. Maybe I'll wear it for the holidays. To the bar at least. This dress is way too short to wear around my family! I guess that's what happens when you buy things a couple sizes too small.

I have my eye on a couple of the things in Rachel Antonoff's Fall 2013 collection. They won't ever be mine unless they are discounted 70%, but a girl can dream!
