Life is too short not to celebrate even the smallest excitements. Today I was excited that this dress that I wore for my college graduation fit again! I remember being so excited about this beautiful DVF dress when it came into my store 3 years ago. A customer actually returned it from one of our New York locations. A dress from New York? If that wasn’t something to celebrate success I don’t know what is! I was even more delighted when shortly before graduation I ventured out to our Beverly Hills store and found the same exact dress still on the shelves at Saks. Granted it was on clearance there but the price tag was still waaay more than what I got it at. A cute dress bought at an amazing price, what’s not to love? Plus, New York and Beverly Hills a part of a dress’ history, of course it was destined for me. Truthfully it didn’t fit when I first bought it but that was motivation to stick to a strict diet and start running some more. And it paid off!
I would like to say I celebrated that accomplishment with some balloons back then but alas I figured a diploma would suffice. Anyone can wear a label, but it takes a true fashionista to wear a piece with a successful story to accompany it.
