Sunday Best

As soon as I got a sneak peak at H&M's garden collection last year, I just knew I had to have the red rosette dress and jacket. Don't fret though, I would never wear them together, except  to an 80s party of course. Normally, I don't wear much red, but how could I say no to a puffy shoulder, three-quarter length sleeve embellished jacket. I had to make it mine.

Much like my other fashion escapades, this was going to be more difficult than I originally thought. On the morning of its release I went to the store in Georgetown and had a friend go to the store downtown. No luck, I was told the jacket and dress would only be available in urban markets, i.e. New York, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia. I quickly thought about every friend I had in one of those cities and hoped that one of them would be nice enough to pick up the items for me. After several phone calls to stores all over the country, I found both the dress and the jacket in my size in Boston and by sheer coincidence, I was going to be there visiting a friend in a couple of weeks. Now came the hard part, getting in touch with my friend who almost never answers her phone or emails. After several attempts I finally got through to her, but the one catch was that she had to pick up the items that day as they don't hold special merchandise longer than close of business. I am on the phone with them at 8:57 pm (they close at 9) begging them to hold it one more day when she walks in the store. Of course she hated the jacket and couldn't believe I went through all this trouble to get it. I'm lucky that my friends humor me and continue to remain in my life considering all the ridiculous things I make them do.
