I found this dress over a year ago and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I bought it without even trying it on, as I was confident it would fit as it was my size. When I got home I was crushed because I couldn’t even zip it up.
I know what you’re thinking….that I need to drop a few pounds before I could wear it, but to be honest, I didn’t think that was it. The zipper had this annoying little catch that didn’t allow the zipper to go up all the way, even if I wasn’t wearing it.
Determined to wear this dress, I actually had the zipper replaced…but it was still giving me trouble. I looked into all sorts of tricks to help a zipper glide more smoothly but nothing worked.
I really wanted to wear this for my recent photo shoot, so I took the dress out of the closet, and zipped the zipper up and down about a million times and it seemed to have gotten the kinks or whatever out of it. The first time I was able to get the zipper up while wearing it was a wonderful experience.
I love how these photo turned out and I can’t wait to wear this again!
