I took my boyfriend to H&M yesterday to check out the dress because he hadn't even seen it yet, so I put it on and showed it to him. That sort of backfired, because he really didn't like the dress that much. Too poofy, too childish, the nude piece of fabric on top reminded him of granny underwear and the fraying at the hems just looked sloppy to him. I sort of agreed on all charges (I don't even LIKE the promdress silhouette or fraying), but the dress in its entirety still totally clicked in my head. It spoke to me. As a matter of fact, it SANG to me. However, I didn't feel comfortable getting a 200 euro dress I wouldn't be able to wear out that much if my boyfriend hated it, so I said I was going to think about it a bit more. After a few hours of doing homework in the library, I got in the car with my boyfriend and told him I had decided: I wanted the dress. By then, the stores were closed, so we planned on getting it the next day. But his opinion on the dress only deteriorated as the night went on. We even ended up getting into sort of a fight over it because I didn't want the dress if he hated it, and he felt bad because this way, in either of his options, it wouldn't be "right": if he got it for me I wouldn't be as happy with it because he hated it, and if he didn't get it he would've ruined it for me too. I'm always the levelheaded one in discussions, so I just told him we'd sleep on it and not get it if he still hated it in the morning.
This is what ended up happening.
I bought these for myself!
Years and years and years I've been trying on simple black pumps in the hope of finding the perfect black pump that would NOT have my heel slipping out (I always have to buy heels with straps) or my toes die of a lack of bloodcirculation, and I slipped these on and they were PERFECT. The platform is high and they are nicely cushioned, so these are supercomfy.

I'll do a proper post tomorrow, I promise!
Did I do the right thing?
Oh, and here's the link to my new article on wintercoats!
