I picked this dress up on impulse at Target and had high hopes for it. I love my other green shirt dress and wear it all the time in slightly cooler weather. But because it has sleeves and Florida is approximately the temperature of the surface of the sun – I thought finding a sleeveless shirt dress would be a good substitute for super hot summer months.
I was wrong. This dress was a total fail. While I don’t look that disheveled in the picture, I felt like I was a big mess the entire day. I was miserable. The belt rode up or was falling down. The elastic of the waist couldn’t find a spot to sit on my body and went wherever the belt wasn’t. It had too much fabric running around bunching in the middle and the lined underlayer of the skirt kept doing different things then the top layer. I was constantly pulling, tucking and adjusting myself the entire time I had it on.
And then I caught a look at myself in the mirror at work and when I wasn’t posing intentionally for a picture the dress was hanging in a way that was really adding bulk and lumps in places I don’t have them. I definitely don’t need that.
Am I a jerk if I take it back to Target now that it’s been worn? I only wore it in the a/c at work- but it still feels a little crummy to return it now that it’s used.
