Sizes Don't Matter

My mom got me this scarf and dress for my birthday. I think I've talked about sizes not mattering before on the blog, but this dress really proved the point. I usually am a Medium. Pretty average, a medium will fit. And when I opened this dress, it was a small. So of course, I'm instantly worried it will be too tight, will look bad, and I'll have to go exchange it for a M. Instead, I ended up exchanging it for an XS. And let me tell you, I am not an extra-small in 99.9% of items. But in this one case, I am. 

Sizes don't matter, my friends. I could have been an XL in this dress and I still would have kept it if it fits well. The fabric is soft, the style is versatile, and the color is one of my favorites. (Thanks mama!)

BTW, in these pictures, I'm still wearing the size small, so it looks a bit too big.
