OOTD :: of wistful summers and justifications




We shall return to our regularly scheduled Friday linkup with Blogging Besties next week, but this outfit was created before I could get back in sync with Whitney and Alex, so here ya go.

It’s my last gasp of summer. My wishful thinking. My nod to casual Friday. This is an eBay acquisition, a holdover from Kohl’s Designation line with Peter Som, several seasons back.

I’d eyed this dress with its whimsical postcard print forever, but couldn’t justify paying the $50+ retail price tag, even with all the discounts. I’d resigned myself to never owning one, but stumbled upon it in my size on eBay when I was Mad Hunting something else, and even though I was still practicing a religious shopping plan that dictated I only buy gently worn merch, I couldn’t pass this up, “new with tags” and all.

The way I figure it, if I bought it on eBay, it’s like buying used anyway, right?


Keep lying to yourself, Maricel…

  1. When you find an item by chance on eBay, then you have to buy it! And this was definitely worth buying. So unusual in the print and you look ethereal in it!

      I’m glad someone thinks the same as I do. Because I just scored another frock on eBay today!

      And “ethereal”? I’ll take it! I always feel like a gallumphing elephant next to my more willowy compatriots. ;p

    My holiday is rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrubbish this year! I was at school till the 22nd July and then I back on the 1st September- SSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo rubbish, esp as the children are back on the 2nd, this is the earliest we and they have ever gone back! My husband finished on the 17th July and goes back on the 2nd. I am SO not impressed, particularly as I am now scrabbling to do work! Hurrah for TT, I am ready!!x

    • mtsedwards says:

      You have a very protracted holiday compared to us here in the states. Is that always the case? If so, at least you get paid for more work days, right?

    • mtsedwards says:

      Wait, what?! You just went on holiday! What’s your school schedule across the pond anyway? I never did find out. And yes, we are definitely TTing this Tuesday. 😀
