I continued my search for the "one" today at lunch. The Lotus dress wasn't doing it for me for the particular occasion that I needed it for.
Too short, too bright, to party-party.
I ventured into J.Crew land. I love J.Crew but the sizing has always been off for me (just like the Gap), the 8 is too small, the 10 too big. Nevertheless, I decided to give them one last chance and it paid off. A simple one shoulder cotton dress in soft purple that I can dress up with crazy costume jewelry and bright colored heels.
Did I mention that it was on sale?!
I finally feel excited.
