Take Me Home With You


Have you ever had the experience of walking into store, and immediately being drawn in by a garment? Some item, for whatever reason, strikes your fancy, and you just can't walk away. You pause, you eye the garment, you slowly run the fabric between your fingers... Finally, you give in and delightedly carry your new treasure to the register. That's what happened to me when I saw this coat dress in a thrift shop window - it called out, no, it screamed out to me from the display! (Seriously, look at that pattern. The screaming is believable now, isn't it?)


I really had no idea how I was going to wear it, but I was crazy for the color, the geometric shapes and the sleeve length. I've since tried it as jacket, and then yesterday as a dress. Now I am thinking I want to have it lined with hot pink or turquoise silk (an alteration that will undoubtedly cost more than the thrift shop price of the dress). When is a time an item called out to you? Did you snatch it up immediately, or did you try to wait?

    I don't normally love geometric patterns, but that dress is FAB, and it looks awesome on you.

  6. @Miss L, Hogger & Co. Maybe we should ask, "How often does this happen to you" as opposed to "Has this ever happened...?" Ha!
