Hi, I hope everyone had a great weekend! I’m going to keep today’s post short and sweet because, well…Monday. So I have a cool story about this dress. At least it’s cool to me…and by cool I mean exciting. I was “shopping” around a few weeks ago at the cutest local boutique here in RVA called Nellie George, just falling in love with all of the pieces I wished I could buy. As I walked back to the dressing room area with my friend I sadly came to terms with the fact that on that day none of the beloved items would become mine. Then, I happened to notice this beautiful cobalt, cut-out dress by Elizabeth & James hanging there all by her pretty little self…and then I saw the note she wore. It said “Ladies, free! First come, first serve.” Say what?! I thought of course I must have been reading it wrong, until the sales associate walked back and explained that the dress was missing a piece of the zipper in the back so they were giving it away. I immediately took it into the dressing room, tried it on and I knew that with a zipper it would fit like a glove. So I took that dress and ran before they changed their minds. The next day, I took it to my tailor, got a new zipper put on, and voila! A beautiful Elizabeth & James dress in my size for only $28!
And there is a happy story for you on this Monday! xoxo
