Good evening everyone,
Yesterday I had a lively conversation with one of my coworkers about a dress she had bought. It's a fancy dress (although I argue that it could be dressed down with a cardigan/belt) and she paid $60 for it, and now she's agonizing over whether or not she wants to return it. Normally I would tell her to return it if she was that worried about it, but she said that she felt absolutely stunning in the dress. So of course that made me change over to team "keep the dress." She's petite and nothing ever fits her right off the hanger, and the fact that this dress did makes it work the $60 to me. Also, I'm 100% sure she looks totally adorable in it.
All of this is to say that today I wore one of my very first "splurge" dresses to show her that she should totally keep the dress she bought.
I saw this dress a looooooong time ago on Vanessa's blog and despite never having heard of the brand I immediately bought the first one I saw in my size on ebay. And I don't regret it at all. Then again I've spent well over $50 on other dresses since then, but this is still my first :)
Do you all have any splurge tales? Tell me about them!
