OUTFIT | A Lesson Learned
This dress was a bit of a mistake.
I ordered it back in January, when it first appeared on the River Island website. It arrived, I loved it… but it was still the middle of winter, and I knew it would be weeks before I actually got the chance to wear it, so I stupidly didn’t give it as much thought as I should have, and just hung it up in the closet, waiting for spring.
Well, spring came, and so did my chance to wear the dress. Unfortunately, it was only then, when I put it on last week, that I realised the stripes are mis-matched at the front and back, which honestly drives me CRAZY. It was much too late to return it by that point, obviously, and as you can see, I wore it anyway because I really wanted it to work, but I’m kinda annoyed with myself for not noticing something that would normally have made me return it.
Oh well, it’s a lesson learned, I guess – and hey, I buy the dresses so you don’t have to, right? I’m practically performing a public service here, people!
P.S. If you’ve signed up to my newsletter (subscription box in the sidebar, if you haven’t noticed it…), first of all, THANK YOU. Second of all, you might want to check your junk mail folder to make sure you’ve received the conformation email, which contains a link you need to click to confirm your subscription. I’ve actually now removed this step, so any new subscribers won’t have to confirm their emails, but I noticed quite a few existing ones are unconfirmed, so either you secretly don’t want to receive the email, or it’s lurking in your junk folder somewhere – sob! (Even if you do sign up today, I know newsletters have a habit of getting marked as spam, so you might want to double-check anyway – I mean, I’d hate for you to miss any of my words of wisdom, after all 😉 )[separator type=”thin”]
