Before I get into the point of this post- which is the trunk show I hosted on Friday night - we need to have a quick chat about this Tome dress. It's from Rent the Runway, and I ordered it a size too small but figured that it'd be okay because it seemed like a loose-fitting dress, but when it arrived I put it on I went, oh my god, THIS DOES NOT FIT AT ALL.
Like, reallllly not at all; I was exposing about two inches of underboob, and two inches of underboob really just amounts to "boob."
But then! I realized that I'd been putting my head through the wrong spot - thereby pulling up the cutout flaps that hit around the waistline to extremely inappropriate locations - and that it was supposed to be a high-necked style. So I made the requisite adjustments, and there you go: not only did it fit, it was insanely cool; maybe one of my favorite dresses I've ever worn.
