A while back, when Chick Downtown had a retail store in Pittsburgh, I tried on this adorable but too-small See by Chloe dress that I discovered was a size 2. So no wonder it was too small!
The really weird thing was, it kind of almost fit. That *should* have clued me in that I would not need my usual size in this particular dress, once I found it for a reasonable price from Yoox. But it didn't.
My usual size 8 is billowy and the sleeves poof like no other!
Back it goes which is a shame because it is extremely well made. Fully lined, beautifully printed, fine silk. I can't even make it work with a cardigan.
And I am left feeling as particular and picky as Goldilocks!
