It never fails. It happens at least once a year, every year. I will torture myself. I have a tendency to create the perfect outfit in my head. Without knowing any of the clothing pieces exist in any store. Sounds odd, doesn't it? Welcome to my world.
Last year, I foresaw a cool outfit idea to wear out on my birthday. It consisted of a black flowy dress and a 3/4 length sleeve, heather gray hoodie. I made up the hoodie in my mind. The dress I already owned.
I tormented myself and probably a few others around me searching high and low for a hoodie that I didn't know existed or not because I made it up in my head.
After week or two of looking, I finally got smart or wait, let me give real credit to where it's due: Cowboy and I were randomly in Target and he pointed to the little boy's section where lo and behold there was a rack of hoodies for boys, in heather gray. It was perfect. And cheap. Holla! It worked like a dream and I'll tell you, its one of my favorite pieces in my closet.
This year before I had New Year's eve plans, I thought the perfect outfit would be a multi-colored sequin straight fitting dress. Never seen one before. I've seen the dress in solid sequins, like black, silver or gold. I've even seen a horizontal striped version. But rainbow sequins - no.
I did it again. Created an outfit in my head that only exists in my head.
Until Monday night...I have no shame, I watch The Hills. I will take it farther and disclose that I watch The Hills After Party. It's some serious funny stuff that after party. This past Monday was The Hills Finale and of course, I tuned in for the pre-show special. How MTV of me. And of course, Lauren would show up in my dream outfit. I was screaming and shouting at the TV. Damn you, damn you. Then I found it today online.
Won't anyone loan me $1,000? Or if you know a knock off similar, it'd be happily appreciated.
