OOTD ~ The Zara Dress That Waited For Me =)

There are 3 reasons why I have an emotional attachment to this Zara dress:
  1.  It's CHEAP! Rs.550. Can you believe it??!! A real steal  being a Zara
  2. I think the combination of stripes, polka dots & floral is perfect.
  3. It waited for me. I really think so ;p 

Hear my story first before you think I'm all weird in the head:

A few days before I left for my hometown in July, I visited the Zara store in Delhi for the first time. I saw this dress and wanted it! I mean really really wanted it. It was priced at Rs.2190 at the time. I couldn't afford it that day since I'd spent all my money at the mall.

I stayed in my hometown for a month and had forgotten all about it. 2 weeks after I returned to Delhi, I went to Zara not really expecting a SALE coz the sale season was over. But there was a SALE and this dress was the first thing I laid eyes on in the sale rack. It was for only Rs.550! To my dismay, there wasn't an XS or a S size, only L.
Dammit!
Wait a minute, why does this L size look kinda small??? Why does it look like it's going to fit me?
"Excuse me, how come this Large size look so small?", to the SA.
SA checks the dress and told me it's actually a Small!
"Really??! How do you know?" Thinking the SA is nuts.
She showed me the tag on the inside of the dress. I was speechless! It just seemed so...supernatural.
 I've never been so happy to see an S before...

It's fate. I walked out of the store beaming like a kid in a candy store, and the whole day I couldn't stop grinning as if I'd won the lottery. Now that I think about it, it wouldn't have been as special to me had I bought it the first time I saw it- even at full price.
"If you love something, set it free... If it comes back, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was."

And here's proof that I don't have perfect skin. Monsoon/antibiotics make my forehead bumpy like that :(


Make-up:
Face ~ MUFE HD Foundation & MUFE HD powder
Cheeks ~ Benefit Coralista
Eyes ~ UDPP as base, mixture of random eyeshadows, In2it Gel liner pencil in Very Black, Maybelline Hello Kitty Cat Eyes Mascara. No.7 Beautiful brows pencil in Brown/Black
Lips ~ Rimmel Color Show Off in Kiss Me (which I bought coz it matches the stripes on the dress)


So, do you believe in fate when it comes to shopping? ;)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
