This. This dress was five bucks. Okay, $5.99 if you want to be pedantic about it, but still. It's a thrifted Jessica Simpson dress that I had actually seen in TK Maxx back in Glasgow earlier in the season. I looked at it long and hard at the time, but didn't try it on, not wanting to spend the thirty nine pounds or so on it that day. Five American dollars (and change) is much better, don't you agree?
The print kind of reminds me of coral, and the whole dress gives off a kind of Grecian-inspired, underwater vibe. I've paired it with flats, because there is enough exposed skin between the draped v-neck and the slit sleeves; I feel like pairing it with heels might just push it too far into trying-too-hard-to-be-sexy land. Like a Real Housewife or something. That's not to say I wouldn't wear it like that for the right occasion, but really, sometimes it's nice to be the person in the room doing something just a wee bit differently. That's how I'm explaining-away the chipping toenail polish. It's art, people. It's an expression of my individuality. Is anyone buying this?
