I think that must be true.
If I go by what is in my closet it is abundantly true.
I wasn’t able to turn my back on this little fit and flare dress from Dorothy Perkins. It was the swan song (literally as the pattern is white swans) for the Dorothy Perkins line.
I bought it at a super sale close-out at the Bay, the only store that I know of that carried this line of retro inspired clothing in Canada.
I must admit, I am sad and surprised to see it go. It was the only reason I ever ventured out to the mall anymore.
Granted, since I rarely buy my clothing retail (excepting Anthropologie…of course! we all have our vices people) I don’t own lots of that line, but the few pieces I did splurge on really stood out from other retail clothing lines.
I wore this out to the Chris Isaak concert the other night. It fit right in with his Rockabilly music and would have matched his sequined blue suit perfectly.
Chris why oh why didn’t you see me in the third balcony waving frantically? I would have been perfect on stage next to you! I’m even wearing a sparkly belt!!! We could have sparkled like the stars together Chris!
This dress is great but is clearly missing the extra magic needed to lure Chris to my seat.
Damn you fit and flare! You may be comfortable and flattering but you suck at ensuring I become Helena Christensen‘s body double tumbling around in the waves and sand with Chris á la From Here To Eternity.
Do me a favour, before you look at the photo below; slam a mickey of vodka, squint really hard, shut one eye, dip a finger in some fresh lemon juice, then rub the same finger with some fresh cut jalapenos and poke your open eye with said prepped finger, then stare for a really, really, really long time, until tears are streaming out of your bulging screaming Cyclopes eye and then… very quickly glance sideways at the photo below.
You can clearly see it is Helena Christensen me & Chris.
Sorry for the side boob. I was in the heat of the moment.
Just keep poking that eye.
I know just what you’re thinking…
You’re wondering what the heck happened to my fit and flare dress.
I’ve heard that once you get sand in certain places it’s very hard to get out.
I swear that this all started out as a normal…”I love my fit and flare dresses!” post.
Do you have a certain item of clothing that you fall in love with over and over again and can never seem to get enough of?
