I love this dress so much, it is blue with white polka dots, it fits perfectly and I can twirl in the skirt.
I decided to wear it to work yesterday because it is a nice cool dress and the weather was hot, humid and nasty. But we had terrible winds and unfortunately while waiting for the bus going to work, the wind caught my skirt and blew it completely over my head. Not as glamorousily as Marilyn Monroe and her famous white dress, I gave everyone around a view of my knickers, which luckily were nice and bright purple. I got whistles, shouts and honks. Very embarrassing. It was too late to go home and change, so I just gripped a bunch of the fabric and hoped for the best. Unfortunately when I got off the bus at the hospital, I forgot about my previous mishap and let go of the skirt. As I crossed the street, it happened again, up went the skirt and my knickers were again on show. Again with the honking, the shouts and the whistles. How embarrassing!!! So I am not sure if I will ever wear this dress again as it will always have memories of its malfunction. I may have to give it away. I had another dress that had to be re-donated for a similar reason. It was a tied wrap dress that had come undone on the way to work and I discovered only later that I had been standing on the bus with the whole front open. It explained the strange and delighted looks I was getting from my fellow bus riders. Do you have clothes you just can’t wear anymore because of a bad experience while wearing them? Let me know, I would love to know that I am not alone in attaching emotions to the clothes I wear. Cheers, Michele
