I have fall on the brain!

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Obviously I'm ready for fall because I can't stop buying fall clothes! I had been lusting after this cute little plaid dress from the Gap ever since I saw it on their site. I picked it up this weekend using my 30% off coupon for the friends and family event. I knew I wouldn't want to take it off if I let myself try it on!

I was bummed to read the bad reviews of the dress on their site. Yes, it is a larger dress and not what you would call "figure flattering." It's a shift dress, for goodness sakes! Isn't it supposed to be boxy?

Well, I still think I love it (although of course I'm going to go straight to my closet after work and try it on again, re-evaluating everything...I mean, it still has the tags on it...). Hmph. Has anyone else picked this dress up off the racks?

Sigh. I hope we get a long, beautiful fall this year. It seems like the past few have been gone within the blink of an eye, and we go from 85 degrees to snow within days. I'd like a nice, cool, crisp 65 degrees for at least 2 months, thankyouverymuch!

I am with you here. I LOVE fall and I wish it was around for longer. Perfect cool days, Beautiful leaves, and great clothes to go with. ::sigh:: I cannot wait!!! The dress is really cute, but I can see why people complained. It does not flatter everyone but just make sure before you take those tags off!

That dress looks awesome - totally fall-worthy! I can't wait to go apple picking, my go-to fall activity :)

I have no idea how you buy clothes without trying them on!
