Lady in Red…Military Style

Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.

You don’t get a second chance at a first impression…or a dress on sale.
Not usually anyway. But I was in luck with this dress.

The first time I saw it in Cave Shepherd I left it, figuring the military style wouldn’t last and then I would be stuck with the dress. Plus, I thought it could be a little too trendy for work so I opted for the much safer option: black and ruffles:

It so happened that I found the red one during another sale some time after and at that point I knew I couldn’t leave it again.

I don’t wear it too often because it stands out so much but today I totally felt like rocking it!

Have you ever had more than one shot at buying a sale item? Are there any things you regret not getting the first time you saw them? Let me know in the comments!
