Ba-Da Boom! That is how I am feeling in today’s outfit. I scored quite a few goodies from the 3.1 Philip Lim for Target collaboration when it originally launched back in September. At first I was only interested in the accessories and very happy with the handbags and scarves I was able to get ahold of, along with my Boom sweatshirt last seen here. I wanted this Boom sweater dress originally as well, but decided to pass on it. But after a couple of days passed, I still kept thinking about it and decided to head back to Target to get it. But of course it was sold out when I returned. Then I kept seeing it on a couple of bloggers that I follow and I was kind of sad I didn’t buy it when I had the chance. But lo and behold a couple of weeks ago while my sister was visiting, she, my mother and I went to Target. I headed to the clearance racks and as I was perusing the 50% off racks, I spotted my dress. It was the only one left, just sitting there quietly like it had been waiting for me to come back. I quickly picked it up, looked at the size which happened to be an x-large and looked at the price which was marked down to around $25 and said this will work and put it in my cart. It was meant to be mine. When I arrived home, I tried it on and I was elated. The sleeves were long enough and the sweater dress portion covered my bottom with wiggle room to spare…lol It is a tad bit roomier in the waist then I would prefer but all in all this tall girl is HAPPY! This dress is cute, flirty, fun and oh so comfy. What I also love about it, is that when I get tired of the flounce at the bottom, I can wear it as a tunic sweater with skinny jeans or leather leggings. I’m all about re-purposing and re-mixing as you will start to see more of on the blog.
Have you ever passed on something only to wish you would have bought it days later?
