and other important truths…
Ladies, I bring you a tale of woe from within the walls of my own friendly boutique. One of my fabulous colleagues, Anne* has been in love with the cobalt blue convertible dress, since…well, essentially, since it was created. She has known since she saw it that it was totally for her. On Monday, she came into work, happy as always, and declared “Today is a good day to buy a convertible dress…preferably a blue one.” She walked onto the sales floor and perused the area….no blue convertibles to be found. She ran to our back stock area, and searched the shelves–blue convertible dress-less. She spun and said to our shipping manager, Diane, “Dee, where are the blue convertible dresses?!” Dee replied nonchalantly, “Oh, we sold out of it yesterday.”
Well, Anne looked like we stole her new puppy. She cried “what do you mean?” She asked Diane if she was ‘sure’ no less than 10 consecutive times. She could be seen peeking under folded stacks of clothing and into filing cabinets for the rest of the day. To this day, she is still hopeful and convinced–a blue convertible dress WILL pop-up somehow, but sadly we know the deal; Baby Girl missed out.
So, I tell you this sad cautionary tale for a reason. Don’t be that girl. Convertible dresses sell with the quickness ESPECIALLY when they are on sale, which, they currently are, m’dears.
Don’t let Anne’s story happen to you…get your dress today!

Update: Anne has learned to live without the blue convertible dress. She is the proud new owner of a grey one, which she assures me that she loves “just a much.” She has however, changed her morning greeting from ‘Morning, you guys!” to “Any Blue ones?” Sadly for her, the answer remains a ‘no.’
