What I Wish I wore
I pretty much fell in love with this retro blue dress from Modcloth the first moment I saw it. I loved the length of it, the colour, and the pattern. But as usual, I just saved it to my favourites and moved on...
Then I popped over to read Modcloth's blogger of the moment, which happens to be Miss Indie (who runs a fabulous blog btw), and was astonished to see her wearing the dress I had loved. She's plus size - and yet she could fit the dress. You may not realize why I was so amazed... you see, while modcloth has a nice plus-sized section, it's still a pretty small selection. So I kind of just always figure that on average, the most popular, or cutest outfits, won't be made in my size, and that until I've lost a tonne of weight my dreams of wearing one of their dresses that I truly love, is out of the question. I am so happy that that's not the case!
I am seriously so excited for this dress, that I could hardly fall asleep last night. It's been so long since I've seen something so fabulous - something I would love to wear big or small - and can actually buy and wear.. like for real, not just in my imagination.
New Goal: save money for the dress & shoes + shipping. I just hope they still have both items in stock by then!
