…or, i guess, since I’ve already bought it, the question should be “to return or not to return”… but that’s not as good a pun.
So I bought this dress yesterday at Urban Outfitters, and it was the sort of situation where I was exhausted from shopping and weighed down with heavy bags, and half of the clothing there was on the floor… but it was all really cheap, and so I felt like I had to buy something. I saw this dress sitting in a pile on the floor, and just decided to buy it. This is sort of how my mind was working at the time: “Oh, look, it’s a dress from last summer! [Note the trapeze/A-line shape.] It’ll be perfect for… this summer!” This is basically how the trickle-down theory works: some designer shows a tent dress, and 2 years later it ends up in my closet.
I just don’t know if it’s worth holding on to, though. It’s kind of plain and shapeless for me, but I could turn it into a sort of 60’s secretary dress (see picture 2), or just wear it in the summer when it’s too hot to look really interesting. And since it was only $10, this whole dilemma is a bit ridiculous. But that’s what Chictopia is for – getting other people to solve your fashion problems! So tell me, should I return it or not?
Oh, and I also bought some lace tights from H&M. :D
