And It Started Like This


Seeing is believing! When I shop thrift its almost always impossible to see the same item twice (unless its like a box of unused uniforms or costumes). One day I was making my usual rounds at the thrift store and spotted this dynomite dress. My mouth dropped (which tends to happen thrifting). I rushed over and looked at the dress in awe and falling in love right there. Inspecting more thoroughly I see the frame of the dress and its not my size! My heart sank a little and I was disgusted. Walked away from the dress disappointed and said to myself "Man some fly chick is gonna get this dress!!". After completing my shopping and walking out I see a girl with the dress in hand on line to make the purchase. My heart sank even deeper. Left the store and thought about this dress for weeks! Decided to go thrifting again at another store and whoa be it to me guess what I see?????? OMG like I was in shock, like no way, like really??? I rushed over, inspected, and could you believe it?? It was the same dress but this time in my size! I praised and praised and praised! Now I'm here to share my cloud 9 moment with you! lol  What the heart wants the heart gets!
