CompromisingPosted: September 14, 2011 | |
For a while now I’ve been looking for a polka dot piece (dress, skirt, blouse, doesn’t matter) with a more defined print. So when I saw this skirt at Goodwill with the half-off price tag, I snatched it up immediately, even though the fit around my waist is kinda tight (I figure as long as I don’t eat too much during the day, I’ll be fine :P)
But after I washed it, there is one more problem: it smells. It’s like a weird mix between clothes left in the washing machine for too long and burned rubber. What I don’t understand is, why it smells coming out of the wash. The fabric is polyester, which I don’t usually wear, so I have no idea. The smell did fade once it dried (with the help of my lavender bag), so I hope that it won’t be so bad after I’ve worn it for some time.
So yeah, I can’t breath in this skirt and it smells funny, but hey, at least it’s pretty, right? And it only cost $2.50.

P/S: It seems that last photo was subconsciously inspired by the cover of Kira-Kira (which I’ve never read, but I always see at the bookstore.)
