its wedding season in my country, wich means is also dress hunting season.
The objective is to find a cheap, expensive looking dress, that is not too "mass produced" (i dont want to ask myself the question, Who wore it better?) as you might have discovered yourselves, this kind of dress is super rare to find, its the wearable equivalent of the seven-colored flower (and no, you wont find that in your grandparents house, unless grandma's vintage dress dream comes true for you, wich is also very rare, unicorn rare)
So I went the biggest mall my city has to offer, only to find Pai Mei was...inconsolable... no wait, thats an unfitting quote, ill rephrase; only to find the perfect dress will never be cheap, and that with great walks, come great blisters.
Back home, feeling defeated and lost, I decided to pay a visit to that place of the closet that I visit even less than sunday church, the retro dresses corner. You know it, that corner that has the dresses you wore 12 or more years ago, 90's dresses. (well for those of you who are old enough) you didnt donated or simply burn. dresses you never would ever be worn again by humans.
Guess what Ill be wearing to the wedding I have two weeks from now?
A little black dress I wore when I was 15 ( for a sweet 16, that we call 15's here) from the 90's corner. So yeah, this proves to me that the little black dress is highly versatile and never goes out of fashion, and even if we forget it, itll always come back to us (it can be little boring though, accesories will need to rise to the ocasion)
And the fact that I can wear a dress I used 12 years, and it fits nicely, makes me kinda proud.
I will not give up the hunt just yet (mainly cause there are too much weddings coming). Hope is the last thing ill lose!
Sorry again for the ramble, i feel ramble-y lately.
maybe this will feel/ come as unthoughtful/ unconsidered towards people in stress/trouble/bigger problems right now, but maybe reading something stupid will keep your minds from awefull thoughts just for a bit, and remember we all go through trouble at times, is the way you afront them, the way you shall remember them, and how much youll learn and get from the situation. I say deal with it, with the best attitude possible, being depressed will be of no help at all and will make the problem seem worst than it is (i know its hard)
I can be wrong and reading how other person's problem right now is not finding a good dress might make you angry, but hey! ive been in catastrphic (maybe not comparable to yours, but still )situations too and now my problem now IS that i cant find a dress, so i tell you, this too shall pass, and maybe your problems in the future will be as meaningless as mine! i hope you all have meaningless and banal problems in the future (or present)
