True Story: I bought this dress for $10…

… at a consignment store just outside of San Diego. I had walked by the store many times before but as I was unemployed at the time, I resisted the temptation to go in. I had seen this dress on a mannequin in the window for several weeks and was kind of obsessed with it, but then suddenly in September it was gone. On a weekend in October I was out running errands and had a little time to kill so I caved and went into the store. There on the summer sale rack was THE dress marked down to $10 – call me crazy but I couldn’t believe it was still there – especially at that price. Looking at the dress up close I didn’t think it would fit, but at that price I couldn’t resist trying it on. It fit like a glove. The lovely saleswoman told me I had to buy it, “it was meant to be” – so I did – I’m that easy (most of the time). Being October and all it wasn’t really seasonally appropriate to wear this dress – even for California standards – so I was going to wait til Summer to break it out.

WHELP, last week I realized that um, Summer was quickly passing and my trip back East was quickly approaching – so if I wanted to wear it this season, I better just wear it. So I did. To the CVS and Vons. Did I get a few stares? Sure. Did I care? No. This dress is just so much tropical fun, you can’t help but smile and be happy in it!
