So, with my new boots on, I set out to Callen Lorde to pick up my prescriptions (go, estrogen and t-blockers!) and, since I was in the neighborhood, decided to stop by Brooklyn Industries and check it out to see if there were any cool new items. As some of you know, I have owned a couple Brooklyn Industries dresses and one purse and I love the quality of the items. For the quality, they aren't even too expensive, since, unlike a $14.99 H&M dress, these will probably last for years and years.
Brooklyn Industries has just put out a bunch of new stuff (all of it in my size), so I took a look around and grabbed three dresses that I liked. A friendly staff-member opened up a fitting room for me and added "This one has the best lighting." Thank you, sir! Here's a man who knows what a lady wants!
The first thing I tried on was a gross, mustard yellow dress that was so huge and shapeless it felt like I was wearing a painter's smock. When I saw it on the hanger, I thought it might have been a cool, retro-ish dress, like something from the 50s, but no. It didn't look good at all. I didn't even take pictures of it. You know something looks bad when I won't even take a picture in it. Then again, it felt like they had a whole line of shapeless dresses like that. Like this season, big, shapeless piles of dress are in fashion. Especially if they come two-thirds of the way down your calf like you're a Mennonite, but like a slutty Mennonite who likes to show way too much ankle.
