Well in honor of this thread, i just had to tell you all that I picked up a steal this past weekend. The Gap had a 70 dollar dress on the sales rack with a damage discount because the zipper was broken. It was still 40 dollars and there was no way i was going to pay 40 dollars for a dress that was in a state where you couldn't even wear it! I left it there and then Gap had a big sale and i went back and got the dress for 17.50.
I'm so excited! I'm going to be wearing it to a wedding this weekend. Its navy blue and white stripes, pleated skirt, optional spaghetti straps and its pretty darned cute. The zipper? A breeze to fix.
So i just had to share my excitement.
Pics of that dress, please!
Also, since I started this thread, I must admit that I've now realized that one of my own favorite tops is horizontal stripes! It's a Lands End v-neck t-shirt with tiny beige & white stripes. It fits me well, the stripes don't sag across my boobs, nor are they stretched out, it's really cute & I love it!
70% of the U.S. population now lives in a state where same-sex marriage is legal. At 36 and counting!
Here's a picture from the wedding. The rest of the girls in the pic are my lovely and awesome sisters-in-law
Dress was great, i got a few compliments on it. HOWEVER, that zipper is *weak*. The dress fits me well and isn't too tight or anything (i hope you can tell that in the pic) but Seamus picked me up at one point and it put some pressure in the sides and the zipper teeth came apart again! Fortunately for me, my one SIL brought a change of clothes, that I wore for the rest of the night or else I would have had to go home! Seamus is taking it to a tailor today. He had to bring his suit to be tailoried for his sister's wedding in two weeks and he took the dress with him and we're getting that zipper replaced.
Too bad, it will add to the overall cost of the dress, but thats okay. I really like the dress and it will be worth it.
