After ordering a dress online, only to have it fit all wrong when it arrived, I decided that the good old-fashioned mall is where I needed to go.
I started at Ann Taylor Loft, where they were having a $30 off dresses sale.
I tried on this cute dress, but it was just okay.

As I walked in, the saleswoman (not lying) said "Hello, welcome to Ann - wow, haven't seen you here in a really long time!"
I wasn't sure what to say. "Umm I used to have a bit of a clothing shopping compulsion (I was seriously at the mall 3X a week), but now I'm married and I have a grocery shopping compulsion (I'm seriously at the grocery store 3X per week).
All I said was, "I look a lot online now," which unfortunately seemed to disappoint her. Well, I made up for lost time by purchasing a dress from her.
In fact, the dress that I will be wearing to my high school reunion!
Note, the print is definitely more wild than I ever wear, but the fit was so comfortable and easy.
Looking forward to wearing it Saturday!
