Dress: "Avant Garden Maxi Dress" by Free People // Purse: Rebecca Minkoff // Flats: Zara (almost sold out but on sale for $22) // Sunglasses: T&J Designs
No other store's products sizing confuses me more than free people. Am I alone in this? I swear, I own mostly XS and S items from them and I'm NOT small. it always leaves me wondering what the actual small girls are wearing or are they just REALLY embracing the flowy slouchy look and wearing the same size as this 5'9 girl??
Case in point, this dress. I saw it in the Free People store at City Creek Mall and all they had was a small. Normally this would be enough for me to stop looking at an item but I remembered this is Free People, where sizes are merely a suggestion so I gave it a go. The slip that came with it was comically small on me, like more of a tank top length than a slip. Luckily i have an extensive collection of vintage slips and knew I wouldn't need it.
This dress was just too pretty to pass up. That is the other thing you can always count on Free People doing, taking all your money. You win again, Free People. But then again, with this gorgeous floral dress that's perfect for spring, so do I.
