I took my boyfriend to H&M the day before yesterday to check out the dress because he hadn’t even seen it yet, so I put it on and showed it to him. That sort of backfired, because he really didn’t like the dress that much. Too poofy, too childish, the nude piece of fabric on top reminded him of granny underwear and the fraying at the hems just looked sloppy to him. I sort of agreed on all charges (I don’t even LIKE the promdress silhouette or fraying), but the dress in its entirety still totally clicked in my head. It spoke to me. As a matter of fact, it SANG to me. However, I didn’t feel comfortable getting a 200 euro dress I wouldn’t be able to wear out that much if my boyfriend hated it, so I said I was going to think about it a bit more. After a few hours of doing homework in the library, I got in the car with my boyfriend and told him I had decided: I wanted the dress. By then, the stores were closed, so we planned on getting it the next day. But his opinion on the dress only deteriorated as the night went on. We even ended up getting into sort of a fight over it because I didn’t want the dress if he hated it, and he felt bad because this way, in either of his options, it wouldn’t be “right”: if he got it for me I wouldn’t be as happy with it because he hated it, and if he didn’t get it he would’ve ruined it for me too. I’m always the levelheaded one in discussions, so I just told him we’d sleep on it and not get it if he still hated it in the morning.
The next day, he told me that what he thought didn’t matter at all if I was in love with this dress, and he dragged me to H&M and bought this for me. Because of all the hassle surrounding it, I wasn’t as happy with it as I could have been. Until I put it on at home before I went to bed. I literally skipped around in my bedroom for like 15 minutes, SO happy I got this dress! I am so grateful and so lucky. This is my very first “designer” piece, and even though I’m anything BUT a designerfetisjist, it still made me feel so special because the dress is special and unique and totally fairytale-like. I felt like Carrie in SATC. This is my most beautiful garment, and it is worth every penny. I’m in love.
PS shoes are new too, bought them as a present for myself. I’ve been searching for the perfect black pump for YEARS and I finally found a gorgeous pair that is high, comfortable and fits like a dream (usually my heel ALWAYS slips out ). Yeay Zara!
