Striped Work Days

Normally I don't have stories behind what I wear other than I put it on in the morning, or it's trendy or whatever but this dress has a small story...it was an ordeal to buy ;)

My brothers engagement party was a few weeks back and my whole family took a vacation for it. My mom, my sister and I went to Macy's a few days before we left because we all wanted new dresses. My sister made out like a bandit, I however tried on like 20 dresses and none worked!

My mom suggested that I check out the loft. I was really hoping not to spend a fortune. When I got home though I just couldn't leave it so I hopped back in the car and headed to Loft. I literally did a happy dance in the dressing room because all of the dresses were stunning, and actually fit! So I weaseled it down to two. They had a 50% off sale so I was going to get both, but I brought them to the register and neither of them were on sale!! I was sooo bumbed! So I left empty handed again.

This sounds really dumb, but I dreamed of this dress! So the next day after work I texted the hubs to tell him I just had to buy it! He's not really a stickler on cash, that's the accountant in me to worry, but I figured it was for a fun event! So I bought it and rocked it lol and thought I'd never wear it again, but it's actually quite versatile!

The last bit of the story that I just thought was too funny, is when I was checking out the girl helping me was telling me how great it was, and it'd be perfect for a party and then the funny part, she said that the loft is so great because of their great choices, it's so much better than Macy's, you won't buy what everyone else is buying. I just laughed, I loved Macy's but I guess the Loft was the place to go lol!

That is a really cute dress!! I like hearing the stories behind how certain pieces of clothes were acquired. And I've totally dreamed about clothes I left behind at the store before!
