Seamly.co) had come in the mail. I had really, really wanted the black one for Christmas but my parents decided to give me money instead of buying things off my Christmas list and by the time I found, the black one had sold out so I opted to buy the navy version (which is fine by me since my closet is filled with black, navy, gray and white clothing anyways with only a few more colourful items).
This is basically how the conversation in my head took place once I checked my mailbox after arriving home (keep in mind I was exhausted after a loooong day of flying):
Yay!!! My Versalette is here!!! Woot!! Best. Day. EVER!!
scampers back to apartment, tears open package, holds up Versalette
Um....how does this work? This hang tag only shows the final products...how is the model managing to not look like she's wearing a sack?!?!
attempts to arrange versalette in various configurations, getting tangled in various drawstrings
Ohmigod...I must be too stupid to own this type of clothing. How am I too dumb for this????
drops Versalette to the ground in despair, hauls out iPad, watches how-to videos clutching Versalette and wearing nothing but a bra and underwear
Okaaaay, I think I understand this a bit more.
SLOWLY try on a few configurations, managing to look decent, decide on ruched T-shirt look with jeans for evening walk
I then walked to the library to drop off my library books despite my utter exhaustion (they were due the next day and I'm too cheap/broke to let myself deal with library fines) and during the walk home, convinced myself that I hadn't tied the bottom drawstrings well enough and I was now wearing jeans with a Versalette dress under my winter jacket. It turns out I was wrong, everything HAD stayed in place and I was just being paranoid. Now my lovely purchase has been packed away in my layover bag until I'm on days off.
