I was at Talize.
I know, so far, this story is just so crazy and unexpected.
I found a dress on the racks, giggled and for my own amusement, I threw it in the buggy to try it on. It was an Infinite Dress and I totally remember watching those infomercials (I can't find it online but here is a helpful and rather amusing clip from the VHS that came along with your purchase of the Infinite Dress) and wondering how the dresses even work. I put it in my buggy to solve the 'how does this thing work' mystery in the change room and ended up walking out of the change room with a new respect for all things sold on TV. This thing is kinda flattering...
The fabric is what makes this dress work. It holds and manipulates very well without slipping and stretching out. And yes, it's a synthetic fabric and there are so many bad ways to wear the Infinite Dress but for all its gimmickiness (not a word but you understand...), it works. So now, thanks to the thrift store, I own 'that infomercial dress'. Judging by the label, it came from the late 90's, probably right around the time I was originally watching those infomercials... and daytime soaps.
Infinite Dress, you sold me. What else on the As Seen On TV have I been wrong about? The ear wax cleaner? Or the... ahem... pocket hose?
*Many more ways to wear this dress, after all, it is Infinite... But I got tired of posing after 4 ways. Life's hard...
*Big thanks to Talize for the gift card.
