The Importance Of Trying Things On.....

I saw this dress during the mega sale that Anthro was having few weeks ago.  It was virtually untouched since there was several of this style still left on the rack.  It wasn't the most flattering dress just hanging there, but at a little over $20 bucks something told me to just pick it up and try it on with the tons of other items that I had already found.  Well, I put it on and to my surprise it looked great.  It was the perfect vintage inspired pattern and a great fun dress that I can wear both in the winter and fall months, this year and next.  So the moral of my short story is when in doubt, and its a great deal, just try it on, you really have nothing to loose.  I hope you all had a great week and are enjoying and even better weekend.
