I saw the dress above today and my heart literally began to race. It really did (I don't use the word "literally" lightly)! I thought it was the most perfect dress ever for me -- oh the 38" bust! The rare 38" bust on a vintage dress! It had 17 bids at the time but I thought I would for sure win it and started picturing myself in it. So I stared at it, I bookmarked it, I walked away, I pulled out a measuring tape, I closed the browser, I added it to my watch list, I tried to stop thinking about it, etc. Finally I put in a maximum bid that I thought was kind of insane for what is, essentially, a polyester tablecloth dress. I was outbid and now I am petulant.
Maybe it's the eBay boomerang; today I was wearing the jazz shoes that I got as the result of a fierce bidding war. I played dirty in that one, oh yes I did.
At least I have a lovely tablecloth that Claire sent me a while ago and new serger needles.
