Side note, getting back on the work horse after a year hiatus is excruciating-- landing the type of job made matters a little more difficult. Dealing with heavy groceries and a mass volume of people, standing for hours on end... yikes. My muscles screamed at me by the end of the day.
Anyway, that is besides the point.
After realizing I haven't treated myself in a tiny bit over a month, I decided I would buy a special something from my "invisible" wishlist.
This lovely little number was purchased from Tattoo Apparel. It's an Egyptian cat hi-lo dress by Jawbreaker.
This website was the only place I found it where it wasn't sold out in my size. I was a little skeptical of the site, I must admit. Mainly because I have never heard of the store in the slightest... but I paid with paypal, and prayed it was good!
My prayers were answered with some super fast and awesome service!
I unpacked it a few days ago and swooned for a while before wearing it to a lunch date with the boy. The fabric is perfect for the summer, very soft and light jersey knit. We'll see how long the print lasts, though I won't be shoving this in with the regular laundry-- I prefer to handwash all my expensive garments, regardless if the care info states I can treat it normally.
I was half expecting the long tail of the dress to be too long on me, as these off the rack garments tend to be for me... but I was very happy to find that this wasn't the case. Finally! Something that didn't need altering after purchase!
The price is also a few dollars less than the rest of the other sites I have searched, so there's another bonus for ya if you're thinking about buying this dress-- snatch it up, you won't be disappointed.
And now for another month or so of no shopping-- for myself at least! Heh...
