Spooky Basket: Treat. Yo. Self.

I have inadvertently went on a "no shopping" month because of the closing of the house, and getting that job, and trying to find energy to unpack after working my shifts.
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...


  1. It looks really good on you. I might have a thing for asymmetrical dresses ;-)

  2. Looking good! I've been ogling this dress for a while now, but unlike you I have certainly not been experiencing a lack of treating myself.

  3. So cute! It's always nice to be able to treat yourself to something from your 'wishlist'! You deserve it :)

  4. Alright, I know it's cheating, but I've just read both your posts and I jut wanted to say that it's good to have you back! ;)
    This dress is so cute, I love the print!
