The trap: when I find something wonderful that I know I have no use for. I am torn between buying it simply because it is wonderful and leaving it behind because I know despite its wonderful-ness, it's not going to get out much.
I tried this dress at Zara and loved the fit, love the patch of assymetrical gathers at the hip that gives it shape, love the single ribbon of a ruffle down the middle, and LOVE the inky midnight hue. Me and navy, it's an undying love affair.
The problem is that I haven't been unable to make dresses part of my daily uniform no matter how I try, and the matte silky material is just a tad too dressy for me on a daily basis.
I left the shop without it after (silently) talking myself out of it. I'm relieved that I made the rational decision, but am still feeling a pang of unfulfilled desire.
