I spent a couple of nights over the long weekend at my parent’s house.
My Mom on Saturday had gone to Belk because they were having a huge sale because they were closing the store.
She bought me a jean dress that ended up only being $4.
I wore it to church on Sunday.
I ended up tweeting this picture on Sunday and got sooo many comments that people loved the dress.
It is so simple and I fell instantly in love with it. It’s just so cute.
Then later Sunday I went to Belk myself because I wanted to see if there was anything else I could find.
I was in the dressing room trying on this Romper and tweeted it to get people’s opinion.
I got a big fat no on this and they all had their reasons why they didn't like it. I asked for honesty and that’s what I got and that was great. I’ll be honest, the picture doesn’t really do it justice, and it’s just one of those things that you have to see in person.
I was really swayed to put it back and forget about it based on everyone’s opinion.
But in reality, I know it was only my opinion that counts, and if I wanted it and liked it, and heck it was only $7, then I should go ahead and buy it.
And the funny thing is, when I got home I tried it on for my Mom, and she loved it. I value my Mom’s opinion (not that I didn’t the others) so that made me feel a lot better about buying it.
I say all this to say this, isn’t it amazing how much stock we put in other people’s opinions and judgment whether it is clothes, or whatever the case may be.
When ultimately, I forget whose opinion in the grand scheme of things matters. But at the same time, its fun to know what other people think and to get other opinions too. So it’s like a catch 22, ha!
The big question was to buy or not to buy.
But in the end. I bought it. I liked it. And that’s what counts.
