So, I hit some local shops to see if I could find a reasonable-for-me alternative. I checked the second-hand stores and be, a boutique that specializes in Canadian-designed, and made, clothing.
I didn't find a black dress, but I didn't go home empty handed. This tunic is by Ramonalisa. I tried it on at be, and initially left without it. It certainly isn't the black dress I was looking for. I felt I needed to stick to my mission. So much for my mission. I went back almost immediately to buy it. I love that it's Canadian-made from hemp and organic cotton. So very, very comfy. It's like wearing pyjamas in public.
I'll have to be careful where I wear it. I put it on and was overwhelmed with the urge to go for a nap.
Linking up with Patti and the hopefully more lively crowd over at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday. Head over check out the fun!
