I know this is a terrible picture. I'm sorry. But my camera phone is broken and I don't know how to use my real camera. Anyway. It was the summer of 2009. I was broke and unemployed and waiting for my bar results. I walked into the Betsey Johnson store in Soho with a couple of friends and saw a dress that I just had to have. Unfortunately, it was $350. Poor responsible me went home empty handed and forlorn. Fast forward three years. I walked into Beacon's Closet a few weeks ago as I am sticking to my decision of buying vintage as much as possible. From the doorway I could see my dress sticking out slightly from the rack and I could not believe my eyes. It was in perfect condition for a mere $40 and in my size. Talk about meant to be. It's finally mine and I don't love it any less than I did three years ago. I've already worn it twice. Even better, I am at least two sizes smaller now than I was summer of 2009. Had I bought it back then, I wouldn't even be able to enjoy it. This find really solidified to me that I can do my part for the environment, save money, and still get my shopping fix when I need it.
