I was Christmas shopping with Adam in December and we'd wandered into True Value Vintage. I had given him STRICT instructions beforehand not to let me shop for myself...no matter what. So naturally, when I tried on this dress and stood in front of the mirror trying to convince
him myself that I needed it, he lectured me about not needing another dress. I left the store cranky, slightly bitter that Adam had talked me out of the purchase (even though I told him to do so), and sad that I couldn't have the dress.
Well, Christmas day I open up one of my gifts from Adam and there it was, my cobalt blue vintage dress. That sneaky little bugger went back to purchase it, even after my toddler-esq pouting and whining. What a sweet guy. I got my mom to hem it for me this week, as it was past my knees in the most unflattering way. I was finally able to wear it for the first time today to work and then to Eco Fashion Week. More about the Nicole Bridger show and EFW another time though.

So, as you can tell from my lack of posts this week things have been pretty crazy. I am unfortunately going to have to end my February Fashion Challenge today instead of carrying on for another week. I have new blog projects on the way, and will definitely always be challenging myself with new and unworn items. Hope you all understand :)
