"This dress is my favourite," she breathes each time she slips it on. If she had it her way, she'd wear it every single day. It's the longest of all the dresses she has, which quite naturally deems it the best of the lot. Dancing, is always required.
It's plain old cotton with a charcoal stripe running through it, with one ruffle about two-thirds the way down. Easy, breezy... lovely with silver sandals, or flip-flops, or even barefoot. I'd been eyeing it, but for $40? Oh, hells to the no. But then the price dropped during one of those super-sales Gap is famous for holding, and I snapped it up.
She wore it to a dinner party she and I attended a week ago, she didn't spill a single drip or drop of anything on it, until the bowl of cherries got passed around... in the moment, I tried not to wince at the dark purple-y stains that blossomed down the front of it, but thanks to stain-removing product, and the patience to soak it overnight, the offending stains went down the drain along with the dust on the hem.
I'm nerdy about laundry, yo. Stain-busting? It's the best kind of satisfaction a laundress such as myself can have while on the job. Heh.
