A Stylish Surprise?
I’m a gambling woman. I come from a long line of gamblers. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that when ModCloth offered their “Stylish Surprise,” I jumped at the offer. Even though I don’t really buy non-vintage clothes anymore, I thought that for $15, what do I have to lose? I love Modcloth’s dresses and the odds were high that I could do *something* to the garment to make it work.
So I paid my $15, plus $5 S&H and waited to see my prize.
It came and, well, let’s just say I should have spent that $20 on fabric instead.
Let’s imagine the sort of dress that I would *never* wear. And let’s make it even tighter than it should be. And then, let’s bedazzle it with a massive sequin snake. Make it tighter and shorter still — and stretchy all lycra-y. And then send it to my mailbox!
Yes, I was the recipient of this dress.To be fair, it doesn’t look horrible in the photo. But it just not me! Not me at all. For a site that has such a retro-appreciation, I don’t know what the buyers were thinking when they stocked this number. I guess I know why it ended up being sold as a blind item. I won’t even take a picture wearing it since it does not leave anything to the imagination.
It’s all wrinkled at the bottom because I crumpled it up in disgust after trying it on.
So here’s the question. What would do to redeem this thing? My friend suggestion removing the snake and sewing it onto something I’d actually wear. That’s a lot of work for a sequin snake.
You know what this snake is saying?
