we can never be together


Hi,

I can't believe it was only yesterday.  You're not the sort of dress I'm usually attracted to but I knew from the first moment there was something special between us.  I'm not even sure if you're a nightgown or an actual dress, but let's not confuse emotions with labels.  I grabbed you immediately and took you to a private space where we could get to know each other better.  You slipped on so easily and made me feel carefree and adventurous and cool.  Your pseudo-hippie imitation-Morocco vibe contrasted so weirdly with my platinum hair and red lipstick it was like we completed each other.  My heart started palpitating; my excitement mounted.  But then I noticed that itch.  Why were you so rough with me?  And for that matter, why did you feel so... icky?  I was compelled to check your label, where I saw that while your soul is made of linen and gauzy cotton, they got it wrong in the factory and made you of 100% polyester.  They destroyed your essence.  I'm sorry, but it was a deal breaker for me.  I put you back on the rack and cried a little tear for what could have been.  I'm sure someone less sensitive will pick you up and you will have a fin time with her.  I wish you the best.


Ps - tell your makers at Oysho that they royally screwed this one, and that the next time they come up with a design that screams 100% cotton at them, they should probably just make it from 100% cotton.

  1. No really? I just had to go and check the composition for that "dress" on the website and it says it's 84% cotton and 16% polyester? Are you sure the label in the shop said it was 100% polyester? What a nightmare if it really is 100% polyester. 16% isn't so bad though - I could live with that I think.

    1. Holy smokes Sue, you are right! So now, did I just hallucinate the whole thing? Was it just a bad dream? Or did they make a first batch out of 100% poly? I do remember seeing that the lining was 100% cotton which I thought was so odd because.... there's no lining! Maybe it's worth going back to have a second look. I really did like it so much... You think if it's 16% poly that wouldn't drive you crazy?

    2. 16% is fine. I have things which are 100% polyester even but not that much. I believe there is a time and place for it sometimes. It might be included to reduce the creasing which a 100% cotton item might be more susceptible of. Do go and check - I think it's adorable and am quite tempted myself to purchase and squirrel away for future summer holiday wear. And like you say - where is that 100% cotton lining? I don't see no lining on that dress!

    3. Ok Sue, I went back to the store because I was starting to get really concerned about my own label-reading abilities and my sanity too for that matter. Checked the label in person: 100% polyester. So weird, right? It is obviously the same garment. I asked someone who worked there and she said she had no idea and couldn't explain it at all. So... I'm sure there's a lesson to be learned here but I have no idea what it is. Well, I can hazard a guess, but I think it's Oysho that needs to learn the lessons and not us!

  2. OMG I hate it when that happens. You see a top that is so beautiful and then BANG: 100% polyester. So sad.

    Looks like a fine quality dress! I've seen somewhere in the web Smartcustomwriting review. It was a positive one, and I guess that this material is totally safe for the skin.
