I am embarrassed to admit that I’ve had this beautiful dress for many years, and this is the first time that I’ve worn it!  I finally donned this dress last week to an event I attended on the gorgeous rooftop of the Thompson Hotel in Toronto, with it’s stunning views of Downtown.  Too bad I forgot to bring my camera as usual.

 

I purchased this dress in Montreal 3 or 4 years ago, and I made the classic mistake that so many women make.  It was on sale and this was the last size, so I purchased it a 1/2 size too small with the intention of losing 5 lbs to fit into it.  Well, of course the opposite happened.  I gained some weight over the years and it became too tight.  I’m pleased to say that it finally fits again, and I’ve decided that this will be the summer of this dress.  I’m determined to wear it every opportunity I get to make up for the years of hanging in my closet unworm.  This dress just feels like summer to me, and I love that I feel extra girly when wearing it.  Please tell me I’m not the only one who has purchased a dress that was slightly too small just because it was on sale (and of course, it was fabulous)?

Sometimes a girl just wants to wear a loose shirt.  Sometimes a girl doesn’t want to walk around all day sucking in her stomach.  Sometimes a girl wants to eat a delicious, big dinner without looking like she’s pregnant afterwards in her fitted top.  But this girl has a hard time finding non-fitted clothing that doesn’t make her look huge because this girl is short and curvy.  Enter this girl’s hero shirt . . . the Saint James for Coach drawstring top.  This girl has finally found that perfect, cute-yet-casual, eat-all-you-want, wear-when-you’re-feeling-not-skinny, fitted-but-not-fitted shirt.

 

P.S. I’ve linked up with Jane from Toronto Shopoholic for her #waywewear series.  This month it’s all about print mixing!
