Monday I went to the Goodwill closest to my house and saw this dress immediately:It was in mint condition and I loved everything about it. The shape, the style, the fact that it's casual enough for everyday but could easily be dressed up, the dainty flowers, the colors, the green ribbon tie and trim throughout....sigh. It was the dress made for me. Except, that the size tag puts it at about three sizes larger than what I would normally wear. Now I tend to be (ahem) lenient when it comes to clothes sizing. If I like something enough, I try to make it work. But three sizes? There was just no way. So I put it back and sadly walked away.
Well needless to say everything else in the crappy Goodwill paled in comparison to my dress. So after a few minutes of looking at shrunken Forever 21 clothes, I went back to the dress. I held it up to my body...it looked my size. So I tried it on and it fit perfectly! I was ecstatic and have been on a little high ever since bringing it home. Sometimes I go in my closet and just stare at it.
Also found on our thrifting trips: clothing items for Jay and the girl and a skirt and shirt for myself. Honestly though, nothing else nearly exciting as the dress.
