The one that got away

When there is something I like, I remember it forever until it’s mine. So don’t find it odd that I’ve had this one specific dress in my mind since I saw it in 2008 – I usually don’t pine over things I see on the runway. BUT I could not get this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress out of my mind. I waited, and waited, and waited (for a good sale) until it went away and I never found it. I always had hope I’d see it again. And then I did while browsing the racks at Wasteland. I held onto the dress, walked around the store clutching it – like it was too good to be true, like someone would pull it from my hands and tell me it wasn’t for sale (fears that arise when you find something you really want – I think other thrifters can relate!)

But it fit, and it’s mine! Yahoo!
