How I Found The Perfect Denim Dress... For Less!

August 13, 2015

You've probably seen this kind of denim dresses around for months now and I predict that they won't be going anywhere, partly kudos to Miss Chung's kick-ass and ultra-covetable denim collection, partly because of the mega-revival of all things seventies. You can bet that my search for the perfect button-up denim dress started on the exact moment I laid my eyes on the ACxAG lookbook. Finding the perfect pieces on a limited budget is a challenge, but not when you have a sister like mine! 
She was visiting Estonia's biggest island with my aunt (in addition to stunning seaside nature, most spas per capita and a medieval castle, that place is known for amazingly good thrift shops) and on yet another second hand haul round sent me a picture of this dress, asking hesitantly is she should buy it. I didn't even bother texting her back, I went straight for the call (I know, it's 2015 and I'm still calling people) and literally forced her to buy the dress, secretly praying she's still in that shop. 
Guess who this dress was meant for and who's been wearing it now? 

Ma usun, et olete sellist teksakleiti viimasel ajal rohkem kui ühel korral näinud ja minu tagasihoidlik ennustus on, et sellised kleidid ei kao veel niipea kuskile, osalt tänu imelise preili Chungi veel imelisemale teksakollektsioonile, osalt sellepärast, et kuumad seitsmekümnendad on tegemas pöörast tagasitulekut. Võite kihla vedada, et ma hakkasin endale sellist kleiti otsima sekundipealt siis, kui seda esimest korda Alexa teksakollektsiooni piltide hulgas nägin. Ja teate küll, kui raske on leida miskit, millest on peas (ja Instagramis) nii kindel arusaam kujunenud, eriti siis, kui eelarve on paljuski piiratud. Aga mitte siis, kui teil on selline õde nagu mul!
Ta oli mu tädiga parasjagu Saaremaal (ja kõik teavad, et lisaks hingematvatele merevaadetele, tihedale spa-asustusele ja Kuressaare kindlusele on Eesti suurim saar kuulus ka vingete kaltsukate poolest) järjekordsel kaltsuka-tiirul ja saatis mulle pildi sellest kleidist, küsides pisut kahtlevalt, kas ta peaks selle ostma või mitte. Ma isegi ei viitsinud talle tagasi kirjutada, vaid haarasin kohe telefoni ja helistasin, peaaegu nõudes, et ta selle kleidi ostaks ning salamisi lootes, et ta ikka veel samas poes on. 
Arvake ära, kellele see kleit alguses mõeldud oli ja kes seda nüüd kannab!

    1. Thanks! It's actually a bit too stiff in the material, but that's just looking for flaws. I love this dress!
