For most of us, it’s officially the end of summer holidays, and this means that we are all going back to school (or work for most of us, but school sounds cooler, nah ?). Papers flying, bosses yelling, people stressing out… Everyone’s back to business and already thinking about that next time they’ll get some time off.
But this year, for the first time in my life, the only thing I regret is that summer is ending, no more family time, days are getting shorter, temperatures are growing colder and leaves in the trees are getting more red…
Yeah, for me, this year should be different and really exciting ! I’ve got so many projects coming to me, and I’ve never felt that motivated ! I even worked on and off during my holidays, and since I got back to Paris, I can’t stop working, which is something I never would have imagined possible just a few months ago. I actually feel like some of my dreams are coming through. Well, “dream” is a big word, it’s technically more of a “professionnal project”, but I feel like work is such a big part of our petty lives nowadays, it can become some kind of a dream.
The craziest part is that, even though a lot of things seem blurry to me regarding those projects, and my anxiety level doing rollercoasters everyday, I just feel happy and optimistic. In the end, I kinda think dreams have to be scary, or else they’re just not big enough. So years, I think I’m on the right track, or anyway I’m keeping my fingers crossed !
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’ !) 😉
