The Dress and I



It all started last march when i was in Selfridges.. i saw this beautiful dress but being the very hesitated person that i am, i didn't know if i should get it or not fa meshait 3annah.. 2 days after i got back to Kuwait without buying it bs suddenly i had this urge inside of me .. i want that dress!

good thing my mother was still there, so i told her to buy it for me.. and guess what? it was sold out =(
i've seen the same dress in Liberty fa i asked mom to go there (maskeena mom 7abeebty mashwart'ha!) bs ham they only had one in a size smaller =/
3ad al7eeeeen '3ala zood eb 3ainy! 9ar i have to have it, i have got to have it!
i even searched the net but couldn't find it..

last may when i went on a short trip to Dubai i found it in Boutique One, my smile grew bigger and bigger as i approached it, only to have it fade away as i see that it was a size bigger.. esh hal garadah!?

last week while shopping in Istanbul, as i entered a shop there i gasped in disbelief, there it was right infront of me, there it was in all it's glory.. i almost ran towards it, searched for the tag and it was my size!! i took it off the rack almost hugging it "u'r mine! u'r mine!"

yes my dear dress.. u'r finally mine.. your here.. a few steps away, hanging proudly in my closet right this second, waiting to be worn..

oh and did i mention that i got it for half the price??! ;P

and here's the dress:
