A (sad) story about a dress.

I bought the J.Crew Sanur dress over a year ago. I loved it the second I saw it at the store -- it looked so comfortable and easy to wear, and as a bonus you could wear it as both a dress and a skirt. I was smitten! I even wrote about it for work. I bought one in navy, figuring I could always go back and buy another color if I loved wearing it as much as I loved buying it.


A couple of days later, I found out I was pregnant, and my new dress was quickly put aside. Instead, it was time to find the big box of maternity clothes, and the dress was forgotten.

(I told you it was a sad story!)

I found the dress again when I was packing for our beach trip. The tags were still attached. I threw it in the suitcase without a second thought.

I think that's the point. This dress is so easy!

I would not be exaggerating if I told you that I wore that dress every day we were gone, because I did indeed wear it every day.

I wore it as a very Sex in the City's Charlotte(esque) strapless A-line dress. One day, I added a pink patent leather belt to make it fun. When I went on house tours, I wore it as a skirt with a bright orange tee. Here I am wearing it with a tank top -- it was the last day of our vacation and we were saying goodbye to the beach before it was time to pack up the rental.

The dress was (and is) perfect: So easy to wear, so soft, and so versatile. I loved it, and decided to buy another one when I got home.

When we got home, I logged on the J. Crew and...the dress was sold out.


(So sad!)

The moral of the story is: If you find something you love, GRAB IT before it's gone.

Cue the sad trombone.
