I've picked up a few new pieces of clothing over the past week, so you'll be seeing some new blood infused into my everyday outfits. The first one is this dress from Ann Taylor Loft:
Now, here's the thing about ATL. Their sizing is absurd. In most stores, I wear something in the ballpark of 16/18-ish. I took an armload of things into the dressing room at Loft, all marked 16 or 18 or XL...and none of it fit. I was so frustrated (especially since there was a huge sale going on that I was hoping to take advantage of!).
This pink watercolor dress was lumped in with the other size 16 dresses, so I grabbed it. Tried it on. Fit perfectly! And then I noticed the size...12. Uhm, what?
Lesson learned, Bombshells: don't discount an article of clothing just because it's not your usual size. And on the flip side, don't expect something is going to fit just because it's marked your usual size. If something doesn't fit, it's not you. It's the clothing!
