Last year I went into Ann Taylor during a big sale. Little time, so I gauged what would fit and bought a few things without trying them on. And shocker, two I just didn't like, including this dress. And then I lost the receipt. One piece I sold on eBay for only a couple dollars less than I paid, but this one when I tried it on, I got red lipstick all over the front. That meant I would have to launder, remove the tags, and not get anywhere near the price I paid for it if I tried to sell it on eBay. So I hit the lipstick with peroxide and Dawn, washed it gentle cycle, and let it sit in my closet mocking me. Recently, I decided to try on the dress and now I kind of like it! And again, I GOT LIPSTICK ON IT! So I washed it again, and this time I decided to do a bit of a Mod look with thick black liner, tons of mascara, and a nude lip that won't get all over the dress!

Hrm, I think I may have to fire my photographer husband. We were in a rush, he took one pic, said it was cute, we left. Belt crooked, weird pose… and EYES CLOSED! It reminds me of when my husband (then boyfriend) and I went to my first sorority formal. His father took a bunch… Continue Reading My Wardrobe Today – Thursday
