Another fitting title for this blog post is UPDATESSSS! But I figured that you would be irritated before you began, so now that I have you – let’s talk about my dress.
So, I dropped it off at the best dry cleaners in Waterloo Region and waited with anticipation. Anticipation turned to anxiety as a month past. Anxiety turned to anger as 2 months past. After 4 months of popping in and out and receiving word that “they had just sent it back because the cleaner didn’t do a good enough job” and that they “would call me on Monday” (they didn’t) and acquiring a new name for myself when I walk into the store “Purple Nicole Miller?”, I finally (finally) got that dress back.
And you know what? I still needed to pay for it. And the stain is not completely out. But they washed it so much, the hem came out and they literally re dyed it to try and get it out. The tailor at the shop told me that I was the cleaner’s hardest case in their history and “that they loved the challenge.” (Said through gritted teeth, I am sure).
But I took it out for a spin at a company Christmas dinner and the second I put it on, I forgot all about the issues that I had with the dress. It is still perfect and I still love it an unusual amount.
[pretend that I have a seamless transition here and...]
