A ruffle of a story

Hi Friends. This dress has a little story attached to it. I bought it a few weeks back when I dyed my hair red as I thought hmm need to wear green- red goes with green. Not having many green clothes in my cupboard I opted for shopping and fun this lovely 80s inspired dress.

I then took it home and washed it as per care instructions and to my horror when I pulled it out of the washing machine it had shrunk about 2 sizes and was about the size of a top. I was so upset I called the store and they told me I could get a refund but the lady also told me she had a rayon dress once that shrunk when wet but went back to normal when dry and with an iron.

I waited for it to dry and gave it a light iron and walah- problem solved. Now to remind myself never to buy 100% rayon clothing again!

  1. This dress is lovely, what a gorgeous color! That sucks so much that it shrank, though! At least it still looks cute, right?

  2. I just love that teal color! The ruffles at the bottom are so cute :)

  3. This dress is adorable I love the green with your hair! I just dyed my hair red, and am going even more red this weekend hopefully, so I am going to need to learn what colors work well with it. Luckily, green is already my favorite :)
