Daffa down dilly

So, this dress!  I'd been eyeing it for a long time (especially after seeing it on Kristina), and I finally took the leap and ordered it when Sourpuss Clothing was offering a 20% off coupon code.  Unfortunately, I didn't realize just how small the sizing on this dress runs!  For reference, I normally wear a medium or large in dresses (usually a medium if the fabric contains stretch, but a large if not), and since I read that this dress ran small, I ordered the large.  But when I received the dress, the size large fit like a very tight medium!  I could barely zip it up (even without a bra!) and it was so uncomfortable that I immediately regretted having removed the tags.  I decided to order the XL (which really bothered me, silly as it is, because I tend to blame myself instead of the sizing issue) -- luckily, it fits perfectly.

But now I have a problem: I still have the size L!  I can't send it back, since I removed the tags, and I tried to sell it on Instagram, but the person who was interested didn't pay her invoice.  I'll probably end up re-listing it or putting it up for a swap, but before I do, is there anyone who would be interested in buying it?  It's never been worn and is in perfect condition.  It definitely fits a true size medium (probably a size 6?).  If you're interested, send me an e-mail!

I ended up wearing this dress to go to the Clothesline Festival with my mom.  It's an annual festival with all sorts of artists that sell their work.  I saw a really cute print I liked, but I'm really trying to cut down on my spending, so I decided not to get it.  All in all, it was fun, but a little overwhelming.  It was an absolutely gorgeous day, so there were tons of people there.  At least I got to enjoy the sunshine in my sunshine-y dress!  :)

Also, I just want to thank all of you who commented on my last post.  It's scary to put yourself out there in such a vulnerable way, and all of your kind and thoughtful notes truly warmed my heart.  I'm very grateful to be a part of such a supportive community here in the blogosphere.  I know there are people out there who are decidedly not supportive (given how much internet snark there is out there, it's a fact that's impossible to ignore), but I'm incredibly thankful that the comments I get -- and the readers I have -- are so considerate, eloquent and generally wonderful.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. The wooden house purse *---* soooo cute !!!!

    恵美より ♥

  2. very cute dress. xa

  3. Oh my god. Your purse is a little house. A little house with a flower in the chimney and a winky face on the side. How does something this cute exist in the world? Is there a tiny elf that hands you your lipstick or ID so you don't have to rifle through your purse looking for them?

  4. Seriously adorable ensemble! That purse always makes me go weak in the vintage novelty handbag loving knees. You have such a stellar knack for accessorizing, dear gal.

  5. You have a house bag and it has matching yellow trim to your dress... that's what I call some great co-ordination! And I hate when companies get sizing really wrong, it can make you feel rubbish and it's totally there fault! Or worse, in your case, you end up with two of something - gah!

  6. Too in love with this ensemble for words! Yellow is my favorite color, so I think I may need to add this to my wardrobe as well!
    Perfect as always!

  7. I love this dress so much- the cut, color, details, everything! It looks amazing on you, and once again you matched it with the cutest fun accessories :)

  8. cute dress, the colour is really pretty on you. I hate when things don't fit true to size, I always go by the reviews when ordering online, but sometimes sadly they aren't accurate either! cute outfit :)

  9. Its such a fun sunshiny dress. I hate when ordering mix ups happen like that! Thank you for being so open and honest in your last post. It makes it easier to connect, relate and really feel like we know you. I really love the direction you've taken with your blogging.

  10. So... As I'm reading this there is several inches of snow on the ground. Not even kidding. And this feels like the most quintessential spring so it all feels a bit surreal. However, this is a darling, darling outfit nonetheless.

  11. Definitely re-list it on instagram! That is too cute of a dress. :D

  12. Your outfits always put a smile on my face Sammi! I really adore this yellow dress (I would snag up your large in a heartbeat, but I know I'll run into the same issue with it...darn bust area!) And don't get me started on the purse!!! Your purse collection is equally as impressive as your dress collection sweet gal :-)

  13. This yellow dress is so so cute! I love this sunny, cheerful color on you! So pretty.
