And here’s what I wore to the wedding.
Initially I found this gorgeous Fleur Wood dress… for $445. Yeah. But after a series of rather, persuasive, messages from the bride (bless ya Em!) I thought, “What the hell, I’ll try it on. If it’s terrible, then, great. At least I know. And if it’s awesome? Well, then I’ll have an awesome dress”.
Thing is though, when I went back to try it on the next week it was gone. And I don’t just mean, my size. Or even that design. Nope, entire label. Gone. (I was in Myer and that whole section of the department was replaced with something else). “Well”, I thought to myself, “it’s probably just as well. $445 is a lot to drop on a dress.” And I went about my merry way.
A couple of days later I decided to check out ModCloth, found this guy, fell head over heels in love and bought it in an instant (I can’t wait to pair it with docs, torn tights and a flanno. Nothing but class as far as the eye can see round here).
And wouldn’t you know, I was in Myer the very next week… and yep, the whole label was back. Dress and all. I swear it’s like the universe conspired to keep me from buying that dress so I’d find this green guy. Either that or it was sale time and they needed the real estate for clearance racks. Guess that’s the thing with a higher (sartorial) power. You never know for sure…
