You may have noticed that I’ve gone a little, uh, nuts buying dresses the past month or so. I don’t want to present a misleading picture of my financial situation, so please note: it was entirely the fault of Christmas money and post-holiday sales. The gravy train is slowing down now, so I will be posting new items at a much less gluttonous rate.
It’s a weird thing to talk about, because I don’t think bloggers owe anyone their financial details. In fact, if someone asked directly, my response would likely be a giant middle finger. But I am also loath to seem like one of those bloggers who never wear anything twice. Some bloggers seem to have a different dress for every day of the year, and at that point I’m giving out a hard side-eye. I empathize: shopping addictions are easy to fall into. But y’all have a problem.
Anyway, this dress is from Retrolicious, aka Folter Clothing. Folter costs a pretty penny, but I managed to find this dress on a Canadian website, and the conversion rate made it obscenely cheap. Seriously, I felt like I was ripping them off. But it was the perfect thing to fill the steampunk-shaped hole in my wardrobe. My old go-to steampunk dress no longer zips. (It is, however, for sale on Etsy! Someone should give it a better home.)
