But I got it for such a great price and I was feeling daring so thought, what the hey!
Wow - it really is the same colour as my hair.
I haven't worn it many times but I get a lot of compliments whenever I do (although perhaps people are just surprised that I have made more of an effort than usual and want to encourage this behaviour).
It is also one of the few dresses that I actually wear a belt with. The shop assistant who sold it to me did that whole standard line, "Oh, I think it would look really great with, like, a belt? To accent your waist?" (Not questions - that is just how she spoke.) And while I nodded along in agreement, I was pretty sure it would look a bit crap with a belt. But she was right! Who'd have thunk it?
And this necklace is very special. I got it from a market in Cairo and very nearly left without it because I was getting bored and exhausted from all the bartering. But thankfully the guy selling it chased me down and agreed to my low-ball/ totally reasonable offer. I was so relieved because I really, really wanted it and would have regretted not buying it.
So day three - done! Too easy.
Also I cheated a little by accidentally buying something on my way back from yoga today so I already have my outfit worked out in my head for tomorrow. Totally sorted. Woot!
