I Shall Only Buy Pieces I Truly Love

For one who does not make New Year's Resolutions, here is my second aim for the year. I have dreamed of owning a dress by Charles Anastase for many years but could not justify the cost to myself. Finally, I found a piece that was (almost) in my price range. Only to discover upon it's arrival, a missing belt and a hole in the sleeve. My quest continues.

It looks beautiful, it obviously wasn't meant to be yours though and something nicer will come along I'm sure.

Ugh gutted! It's such a beautiful design as well-- I love the rouching at the front neckline...just beautiful. But hey, I guess you've got to see it as being meant to be - there's a better dress around the corner!

Just return the dress, and settle for nothing less than butterflies.
It is what you deserve.

Dang! It looks so beautiful. I tell myself I should rather buy 2 wonderful pieces a year than lots and lots of cheap stuff - but it's difficult. xo

Lilylovelock said...

This is a pet peeve of mine!Finding that item you truly love then....you start to discover little problems!Good luck with the hunt.

What a lovely dress - that's such a shame.

But this dress looks so pretty! Did you return it? could you not have sewn it? I understand your desires, I have few of the 'names' I want to own too! :) And i'm striving towards it!

There is always some kind of lesson to be learned, eh? That stinks though, hopefully you can do something with it if you can't return it? Keep us posted!
