I thought this dress was so cute and fun in the catalog. I wore it once, about 7 years ago, (with white tights, that weren't any better than these black ones I already had on, when I asked Dick to take the picture.) Still like the concept. It's the application that doesn't work. Might have thirty years younger with nude stockings and dainty shoes. See, I refuse to give up on the polka dots. Maybe I should have saved this for "How did this happen?"
