I’ve always hated dresses. Actually, that’s not true. I’ve always hated wearing dresses. I can’t explain why, I just don’t feel comfortable wearing a dress. In fact, I denied all forms of feminity for a long while, and the only way you could make me unveil my legs (a huge complex) was to give me a pair of shorts. It took time, but I changed, I got rid of my complexes, I learned to let go regarding what I dare to wear, but this has been stuck in my head nonetheless : dresses are fine, but only on other people.
That being said, as a decent clothes lover, I sometimes have a crush on some dresses. They just appear to me, call out to me, I don’t know it’s like a crush, I have to buy them cause I’m sure I’ll cherish them. In the end, I only own less than 10 dresses in my closet, but they’re all very irreplaceable to me, and whenever I feel like wearing them (which means almost never), I’m just happy to !
And then, I found this pure wonder at Mango, I had it in mine for so long and couldn’t find it anywhere, until that day my dream came true, that day I found THE dress. MY dress. The one that can magically reconcile me with all the dresses of the world, the one that makes me say “hey, tomorrow I’ll wear a dress, just like that, for no particular reason.” ! Hallelujah, Jesus Christ Holy Mother ! I never thought I’d be able to have this kind of thought one day (please, don’t mind the weirdness of this sentence !).
This dress has it all. It’s pretty, it’s maxi, it’s stripey (in my world, this means 50% of the perfection level), it’s comfy, it’s so cool I’ve never been so in love with a piece of clothing of my life. Anyway, you got me, it’s THE perfect dress, and I really hope you’ll like it as much as I do (and if you do like it, it’s 50% off right now, just sayin’ !) 😉

It’s funny because I’m getting more and more unlikely crushes, I feel like I’m taking a fresh look over pretty much everything everyday, over me, over fashion, over other people… Does this happen to you to ?! 😉
