I spied this dress out of the corner of my eye a month or so ago.
I should have pretended I didn't see it, but like the siren's song, I was helplessly lured to it.
The silhouette and print are so timeless that I justified making the purchase in about 1.2 seconds.
I made myself feel less guilty by thinking things like, "Self, if it doesn't fit you absolutely amazingly you will just return it."
"Every girl should have classics like this in her wardrobe."
"I don't have an animal print dress."
I quickly squashed the little voice of reason that kept piping up saying:
"You need another dress like you need a hole in your head!"
"You're out of hangers Eleanor!"
"How many other things have you bought recently?"
And I still bought it.
When do I ever listen to you anyway Reasoning?
When I got home and slipped it on I discovered it fit like a glove.
In all the right ways.
Of course it did.
