Am I the only one this happens to? Back when I was single, rich, and shopped all the time (ages ago), I called it being "haunted" by a ______. You could be haunted by shoes, or jeans, or a dress...just about anything that you saw, but passed on. Then you think about it, and think about it, and think about it, until you finally go back and either buy it, or try it on and realize it wasn't as cute as you thought.
Well, I haven't been haunted in a long time. Possibly in the spirit of Halloween, I really don't know, I am being haunted by a dress. The weird thing about this dress is...I have never seen it anywhere. I can't remember the last time I actually went shopping...
Now, you must remember, with me, I got my first degree in fashion design. That is how I ended up in The Big City. Usually, I know exactly what I want before I go shopping.
Back to my haunting...I have no reason to buy a new dress. I have nowhere to go. Quite frankly, I have no idea where I would go to find this dress that I keep wearing in my dreams (yes, the past couple nights I have been wearing the dress in my dreams).
So, in the spirit of illustration and art projects, which I have been doing a lot of lately...Here is the dress that is haunting me...It has a little retro kind of vibe (which might make sense if I have been watching Mad Men, which I don't'). The key to this little dress is in the fabric and the fit. I want it in a black textured brocade fabric (which usually adds bulk to an outfit). I want this dress to be fitted to a "T". I think it would look super sweet if it zipped up the back and just fitted perfectly. I don't know why folks...but I want it. I want it, I want it, I want it...Maybe by putting it here, it will leave me alone?
Have you ever been "haunted" by an outfit???
