It Just Doesn't Fit

By Petunia
I'm sure we all have an article of clothing like this in our closet: the dress that doesn't fit. It might be too big, it might be too small, perhaps there's one little area that just isn't right. But you love it. You can't get rid of it, or wait to grow into it, or let your cousin borrow it, because it's just too cute.

This is my Cuidadela Smocked Dress from Tea Collection's Spring 2011 collection. The color is cordovan. Isn't that delightful? Even the name is gorgeous!

As you can see, I have some more growing to do before this dress fits me properly. I can't help but want to wear it though! The bright blue sparkle hat was perhaps a poor choice of accessories, but I really have little in the way of headcoverings that fit these days. But that's a topic for another post. 

Outfit Name: Cordovan Tea
Petunia's Fashion Rating: 8/10 (but only because of the hat and size issues)
Earl's Fashion Rating: 6/10

At least if it's too big, she will get some more wear out of it. She looks so darned cute!

adorable, miss Petunia! Cordovan/oxblood was the color shoe polish my dad used on his wingtips for work everyday! So 1940's~!
