Have you ever made an online purchase that just doesn’t fit or look the way you imagined once you receive it in the mail?
That recently happened to me. I have been looking for a denim shirt dress for the last few weeks. I was thrilled when I found one I that was really cute and at a great price. My intention was to wear it with white sneakers on days I have errands to run and want to be extra comfy, remain cool, and casual. However, once I received it I noticed it was pretty short. It hit two inches below my bum. I can try to wear it out, but I know I will be very uncomfortable all day long, and thats never fun!
So I was feeling pretty disappointed since I liked it a lot. As I was trying it on I heard the door bell ring. It was the UPS man delivering a package I had to sign for. So right away I ran into my closet and got the first thing I saw, a black skater skirt, and put it over the dress in order to open the door. Once I came back into my bedroom I realized that the denim dress actually looked pretty good tucked into my skater skirt. It was a total unexpected combination. I kept the dress on and tried it with other items I have in my closet like chunky tights, thigh high boots and various jackets. I also realized I can wear it to the beach as a cover up on summer days. So I decided to keep it.
A burgundy moto jacket really amped up the look as I was combining leather with leather. The day was rather chilly, so a sheer pair of tights kept me warm enough. The whole day was filled by errands and running to class, so I wore my small heel booties. In order to brighten up the gloomy day I made sure to add a great statement necklace and a burgundy pout 🙂
