Do you have an article of clothing that you can't live with out (and I'm not talking about underpants...). One that fits so well and that you love so much that you have to have it in every colour?
I found mine this spring. It was on a shopping trip with my friend Aneesha. She'd pulled me in to Old Navy to check out their clearance stuff. I'd never been a huge fan of Old Navy - most of the stuff wasn't my style, and I found the quality to be lacking in a lot of stuff. But I followed along because she'd patiently waited as I perused the clearance racks at Reitmans next door.
Well... Old Navy was having a huge dress sale... (and you know I love my dresses). So I grabbed a few likely suspects off the rack, and headed to the change rooms. I fell in love with three... and wouldn't you know it, when I got to the cash, the one I really, really loved wasn't on sale. I hate to pay full price, so I set it aside and left with the other two, still pretty pleased with myself.
But I dreamed about that dress. Oh, did I ever. I rarely regret leaving something behind (except for maybe those Nine West Shoes, which were first spied on that same shopping trip.)
And so, the next week, I began stalking Old Navy's website, watching for it to come on sale. About a month later, it did. The credit card was out of my wallet so fast, it would make your head spin.
When they arrived, I immediately changed into the purple one. I couldn't believe how well they fit. Being extremely busty, and hippy, but with a really short torso, and stupidly long legs, finding dresses that fit perfectly is near to impossible. I almost always have to take something in, let something down and just generally make adjustments.
Not with these dresses. Everything is right where it's suppose to be. And wouldn't you know it, when I ordered those two, it was during their "Super Cash" promotion - which meant they sent me a $20 coupon for my next purchase.
That meant a few weeks later I came home with one in White Linen
And then, this morning I got this crazy idea to go on the Old Navy site once again... just to see... and wouldn't you know it
Old Navy.... I think I love you.
