Dress: Spenser Jeremy, thrifted;
Shoes: Tayla platforms, Target;
Necklace: thrifted.

This dress typifies every internal monologue I seem to have with myself when I go thrift shopping. Here's what my brain discussed when I saw this dress:

JoAnn's Left Side of the Brain: You don't need another dress. Get out of this section now. Run.

JoAnn's Right Side of the Brain: Oooh, green! I love this color. And it's Grecian-inspired. Isn't the little side-tie just darling? Just darling! And it fits well. Think of all the possible outfits!

Left Side: Be reasonable. Green, aqua, turquoise already have taken their place in the closet. You know this. We had a Dress Project after all, in which we discussed the merits and pitfalls of every single frock. Come on, don't make me get the frontal lobe involved here.

Right Side: But it's 100% silk. You can feel that it's a good thing. Natural fabrics. Sofffft.

Left Side: But you could use that money in a practical way. Save for graduate school. Open a Roth IRA.Whatever you want. Let's discuss.

Right Side: It's only $2.

Left Side: You're speaking my language. I give up.

Welcome to the club, new dress.
