The dress is also proof that I challenged my "phobia" of small shops. Especially small, exclusive shops for women. I hate being targeted as soon as I open the door. I hate the way the shop assistant follows me with her critcal gaze (or that´s what it feels like anyway). And I´m one of those people who don´t immediately wants help. I want to look around on my own, make up my own mind in peace and if I have a question then maybe, MAYBE, I´ll ask for some assistance.
But anyway, this one was worth a bit of hassle.
It was also fun to watch all the dressed up kids with their proud parents and grandparents, everyone carrying pretty flowers and enticingly wrapped presents. I decided that I also want to celebrate summer and achievement so I ate some sushi for lunch and then had ice cream in the park. Mmm. Now I´m a bit drowsy from all the sun so I might even take a nap. :)
