The Perfect Little Pink Dress...

I have the perfect little pink dress, it is a pale pink with beautiful pink flowers along the hem line and while the tags say $198.00, that is NOT what I paid for it...I paid only $29.99, on sale at Talbot's. It was such a bargain, my perfect little pink dress. The palest of pink, the color my daughter describes as a shade that completely wipes all color from me making me appear corpse-like. The wonderful design of the dress, shows off not one of my  attributes but somehow hangs lifelessly on my body.

I have had the dress for over five years now and each and every time I pull it out of my closet, I marvel at my great find of only $29.99 and I ponder on when and where I might wear this perfect little pink dress...

Then I stop and remind myself , that my daughter, who doesn't lie much to her mother says it is an awful dress and that it is not in fact the perfect little pink dress! 

I have learned that shopping doesn't make you happy...not in the long run! It just really fills your closets with "things" and "things" do not make you happy.

Yeah, I get those cryptic comments sometimes, too.

In re: the pink dress--I sometimes wonder how old I'll have to be before I stop buying things that don't suit me.

It's sooo hard to resist a bargain!

I don't feel like you are representing me in a positive light here. You asked me for my honest opinion...If you want me to lie, then tell me to lie :) You have a closet full of other pretty dresses that look wonderful on you!

Wow...the point of the blog my daughter was that you were being honest about the dress and I am just seeing it as a good bargain. While I love you, this blog wasn't about you but rather about me and my need to buy things I don't need and hold onto them. Your younger brother was honest about this blog post as well, he said it wasn't my best work...
