Values

A short post because I cannot for the life of me figure out how to PARAGRAPH with the new template that has been inflicted upon me. Yesterday, while noodling around the internet, I came upon a post that asserted that the Rachel Pally caftan was the BEST DRESS EVER. IN SOLID COLORS, of course. Oh my, thought I. I HAVE that very dress and never wore it. Dragging myself from some of the 300plus pieces of work I must process before my semester ends, I found the dress (black, so almost invisible) on the VERY LAST HANGER in my tiny closet. The dress really lacks hanger appeal. It languished for months at the Food Bank Thrift shop; I eventually tried it on during a half-price sale. It was $4. It does look quite snazzy! But I am wondering, apropos my title, if I sometimes don't properly VALUE things because I get them so cheaply. So, yes, it was a good VALUE, but really not, since I haven't worn it. Perhaps the full price model would be a better VALUE because I would VALUE it more. Has anything like this happened to you? P.S. I've discovered that adding the pics breaks up the text and thereby serves as a PARAGRAPHER.

I have another 10 days or so before the piles of work descend. Perhaps you should wear the dress to grade. I can only do 5 papers at a time before I have to take some sort of break.

@SB--I have 110 now; will get 110 more next week; then finals. Just do one at a time...

@Terri--I wore the dress w/ some leggings to Goodwill today and it was comfy and--I think--nice looking. will have to check with my daughter when she comes home. I've lost all sense of judgment.

So I guess you have the short version? All kinds of people think things are "the best" but if it's not you, why keep it?

@Duchesse-Yeah, I have the short one. I wore it yesterday. I have a tiny closet and only a small part is visible when I open the door. So....the dress got pushed to the end. I like the dress. I think my daughter would like it also. I think it will be perfect for Europe this summer.
