I've loved this dress for years. For years! It's just a cheap little thing from the mall, but the colors were always divine and it was the perfect shape/fit. I can still maybe get away with it with black opaque tights, but the yellow were way too "look at me! look at my bum!"... *sigh*... Don't you hate that?! [I also hoarded two lace cardigans a couple of years ago wayyyyyy past their prime (read: rips everywhere!) because I couldn't find a replacement]. I've learned the hard way: If you really really love something that's from a mass retailer like Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe, buy a back-up! This has saved my butt so many times and usually the prices are perfect for it.
Cue awkward-trying-to-cover-myself outfit photos... [and only a couple at that!]
