A Shift in Style

I walked in my office building today, and was followed by a woman who commented that she loved the dress I'm wearing. It is what you would call a 'shift' dress, not much shape, short, and very comfortable. (Not the most stylish these days, I realize that, but still. I like to wear them in the summer because they are just so damn cool....much more comfortable body-temperature wise than pants, and most men in my office would never comment on the seemingly-casual look because, after all, it is a dress.) Anyway, the amazing thing about the woman commenting about it is because it's most likely more than 5 years old, and I inherited it from my mom when she lost a lot of weight! It's still a little big on me, but in the hot and humid days of July in NYC, I don't really care that much. The woman also asked where I got it, and was shocked when I said "Gap, a few years ago." She said she thought it was a new style from Saks! Made me feel so stylish in my shift-dress.
