I bought this green dress on the spur of the moment. I loved the way the emerald green looked on me. Back before we had a kid, my wife had given me an emerald bracelet that I wore with it. It looked smashing. I decided to wear it on my plane flight to Phoenix. I was sitting in the airport, looking pretty and thinking to myself, “I never dress up anymore. Why is that?”
I got onto the plane with my adorable 18th month old son, and by the time I was done, I had chocolate hand prints all over my silk dress. He threw a tantrum the entire flight, so my hair was standing on end as well.
But I liked the dress so much, that I thought maybe I would buy another one. I hesitated because it seemed silly to buy the exact same dress, twice. Finally, I decided to do it, but when I logged into the Banana Republic web site, they had sold out! So I rushed to retail store, and they had two left, one was one size too big and the other was two sizes two small. I tried them both on. The shop girl, who looked about 12 said, “Go with the smaller size. It looks good on you.”
Its way to small for me, but I bought it anyway. I’m going to pretend that shop girlie was telling the truth. Only thing is, I can’t lift my arms when I wear it, so I won’t be raising my hand in class.
