Vintage dress? Found at a garage sale by my parents
Clutch? Old Navy, thrifted
Sandals? Marc Fisher, Winners
There are three reasons I wore this dress the past weekend.
#1. It's very pretty. I don't think you can argue that.
#2. My parents originally found this vintage dress at a garage sale and kindly gave it to me (scientists should probably go back and study the gene code... is thrifting the result of nature or nurture? Discuss). I thought I would wear it to the family dinner we had this weekend as evidence of their awesomeness.
#3. I needed to wear something with stretch. We celebrated my Dad's birthday and as per family tradition, he got to choose what he wanted for dinner. He chose Korean food. My family lived in Korea for 10 years and while there, my mom picked up some good Korean cooking skills. We don't have Korean food that often, so when we do, I overcompensate and eat like someone broke my heart. I know going into the meal that I will suffer extreme stomach cramps afterwards (always) from all the salt going into my body but I can't help myself because the food is sooo good. And now you know I can be a glutton. Judging by the number of cats I let into the house, by the number of thrifted dresses in my closet and by my lack of self control during a good meal, it seems moderation is a word I have to learn a little about.
