I couldn't stop thinking about that dress I mentioned yesterday, so I went back to the store today. I told myself that it had to be long enough to wear to work and, obviously, had to come in my size. I'd checked it out online and the only sizes left there were L and XL...not my cup of tea. When I came to the rack, there were plenty in my size, even though I ended up buying a size smaller than usual--thank you, treadmill! The dress was more of an orange-red, or "hot orange" according to the tag, than a true red.
I had to exercise restraint while strolling through the racks. As much as I'd love, love, love to go on a spree, I'm saving for my adventures in NYC. I just happened to need this particular dress to wear on said adventures. I did find a slouchy sweater dress for less than $5 on the clearance rack. It's thin, so I could wear it on a cool, late summer day or just save it for fall. All in all, I made it out with only one extra item. Not bad!
I rushed right home, since I was due back at work. To prove that my new orange dress was workplace appropriate, I threw it on, un-ironed save for some Downy Wrinkly-Releaser. There will surely be an outfit post devoted to this dress, but I wanted to save it for later.
