Today while Hedgehog was at a bowling party in Manhattan, I somehow found myself in Anthropologie, a store that has haunted my dreams for years. It is so exactly my taste in clothing that it's as if the designers entered my dreams and stole my aesthetic. However, the prices and the fact that often the clothes would make a coltish 12-year-old look zaftig, have prevented me from fulfilling my decades-long fantasy of owning a dress from this store.
Well, this afternoon I finally bought a dress. My favorite dress I've ever owned. Go check it out if you feel like it, HERE. I have many plans for this dress. I shall wear it with a thin drapey red long-sleeved t-shirt, boots, and tights in winter. In spring, with wedge-heeled sandals and a light sweater.
I love you, darling darling Secret Joy dress.
