When I got home, I had a root through my wardrobe, and found this little grey flowery number, which I bought last year from Primark. It’s the desaturated twin of this dress, although the fit isn’t quite the same. It’s a bit tighter, for one thing, which is why it’s been relegated to the back of my wardrobe for a while, as it didn’t fit! But I tried it on this morning, on the offchance, and it does again. By far the best thing about losing a bit of weight is rediscovering Lost Clothes, isn’t it?
I had my fringe cut back in last night as it had totally grown out. I'm so pleased to have it back - it just makes a simple hairdo, like a bun, so much more 'done', you know? And I will be re-redding my hair this weekend, too!
It’s cute though, and comfortable, and for casual Fridays – I am, as ever, leading a one-woman fight against the enforced wearing of jeans on Fridays – it’s kind of perfect. But it’s Primark, and I always feel like there’s an element of luck with how their clothes fit. Sometimes you can get it SO right – their shoes, for instance, are cut oddly wide, meaning they fit my plate-feet perfectly – and sometimes so wrong. And this is a bit awkward. The collar doesn’t lie quite flat. The sleeves are a bit tight. The zip is a complete bugger to do up. So yeah, while it is a nice dress, it’s also one of those dresses that you can’t wait to get out of at the end of the day and back into your pyjamas. I mean, your going out clothes. I have a social life, honest.
I’d accept this dress as an ‘almost there’ dress, if it wasn’t for the fact that it reminds me a lot of this dress and this dress, both of which fit perfectly and never fail to be comfortable. What do you think? Is it worth keeping dresses like that? Or do you think I should just donate it to the charity shop and use the spare hanger for something I like more?
