Does anyone else find Christmas shopping difficult? I mean, of course it is. But I mean specifically fighting the urge to buy yourself presents? Especially the kind that no one else will buy you.
Like this dress.
I was in the Exchange doing some Christmas shopping with Daphne from Vixage. We stopped at the Exchange Uporium. Patti Henderson - curator and owner of WildWoodRose Vintage - has her stuff there. Deadly.
So I'm perusing her racks and I see this dress. I knew immediately without trying it on that I had to have it. ...I'm so weak...
Decision made when I put it on and it fit like it was made for me. damn.
I also bought a gift for a gift exchange while there, so at least there's that lol!
Black is hard to photograph with my point and shoot camera, but I'm hoping you can see the asymmetrical peplum/draped panel on the back. Also has three covered buttons at the nape of the neck.
After I took the last bunch of photos I decided I needed more accessories, so I grabbed this hat and clutch. I'm in love.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who buys themselves things while Christmas shopping. I've got four more gifts to buy and then I can stay away from the stores. Now I just need to find somewhere to wear this dress.
