the other woman

By Marlene | Published: 27. March 2013

Lately I’ve been trying to change my buying habits, especially after the big closet clean out at the beginning of the year. Shopping, when I do, for things that I will get a lot out of. A good quality silk shirt. A classic coat. A blazer that works with everything. Pieces for seven days a week. Extravagant mostly in that I will want to wear them too much.

This dress is not one of those pieces. This dress is the Saturday night to the everyday. It’s a promise as much as bit of fabric. An idea of the woman I am when I put it on. If this dress walked into a bar, Cary Grant would order it a drink. I haven’t had the chance to take it out yet. And maybe there’ll only be two or three nights a year when I will. Still, it feels good to think that, on those nights, I can play the role that befits this movie of a dress. There should always be a little room for possibility in a closet, not just reality, even when it suits me better to restrain my spending as it does at the moment. Because in reality I might not have had the guts to show you a picture of the back view of me in the dress, although I think that it’s the peek-a-boo detail that really elevates it. But the woman wearing this dress? Well, she doesn’t mind so much. Just saunters by and throws you a smile.

    Ist das das Kleid von “& other stories”?

      Ist es. Ohne lang nachzudenken gekauft. Aber manchmal muss man bei den Impulskäufen ja auch Glück haben.

        Gut, dass du so impulsiv warst. Als ich im ONline-Shop war, gab es das Kleid schon nicht mehr…

          Aber vielleicht bald wieder im Laden? Ab April auf dem Ku’Damm…

            Danke für den Tipp! Ich war ja heute kurz auf dem Ku’damm und muss sagen: Den könnte ich häufiger mal entlang schlendern.

    Perfekt um in München nächstes Mal in die Martini Bar zu gehen. <3

      Gute Idee. Und wenn ich das nächste Mal dort bin, sollte auch das Wetter langsam zum Kleid passen.

      Lexi! Du Bombe! Das sage ich Tracy das nächste Mal, wenn sie mich wieder quält.

    WOW! Marlene, toll siehst du aus! Bitte führe das Kleid bald aus!
    Vielleicht sollte ich auch mal die Dame in mir suchen.
    Frohe Ostern!
