It’s Complicated…

Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.
― Karl Lagerfeld

I have a love-hate relationship with this dress… which is probably why I look so unimpressed in the photo….

I absolutely love how it looks when it’s on but it’s a nightmare to get on and especially to take off. The buttons on the front are just a front since they can’t be undone. It does however have a short zip in the side which is all the ease the manufacturers thought I would need.

Something this cute just shouldn’t be so difficult! Whenever I wear it I have to writhe and wiggle and sigh once in the morning and again in the evening.

Yes, I could do something about the buttons but like most alterations I CAN do, I never really do them.

I’ve had the dress for two to three years. I really can’t remember but I know I bought it to wear to work on my birthday. I think it’s safe to say I won’t fixing the button issue.

Anyway, since grey is such a boring colour, I brought out my Miche big bag (with the Sophie shell) which holds everything and leaves room for anything I pick up during the course of my day. It’s practically bigger than me!

Do you have any pieces of clothing that are a terror to get in and out of or is it just me?
