Does Your Size Depend on How Much You Like Something


Ahh yes. I did just buy this dress a full 2 sizes too small because I love it so. Alas, I will spend my evening moving snaps by about an inch to make this dress appear to be my size. I've found that my size varies based on 1) How much I obsess about something and 2) How much it costs. I could range from a 2 to a 12 at the Barney's Warehouse Sale. So if you see me hobbling down the street, know how truely and deeply I love those shoes, or at least loved the price tag.

But it was worth if for this doozy. It was featured in both In Style and Domino, and is sold out from Bergdorf to Intermix. Milly sure knew what she was doing with this frock, and it doesn't hurt that it is the color du jour. So you see, I just had to the last one, regardless of the size.

Love Milly and love the dress- a cheery bright yellow with ruffles and a bow- am there!

Fabulous silhouette, too and such a modern twist of a simple design. Am sure you look fabulous in it, too! ;)

much love, xx

ps- am the same way, I'll make any size work- it can be done with the right styling. Worse comes to worse and it is truly fitted- alterations make a dream come true.
