Never Say Never

A little confession: I used to have a secret thing against Alexander Wang. I felt myself above the trendiness, the uber popularity of his "under" styled style. Some of my friends and I even had a pact not to purchase anything by the designer.

And yet, over Thanksgiving break, at a boutique in LA, there it was - stretchy and beautifully simple - a little ponte stretch tank dress from T by Alexander Wang, and it was on sale.

Never say never, my friends. Because this dress was a little gift to myself last week. Once I get over my newfound camera phobia, I'll show and tell. The Wang ban has been lifted.

Do you have any quirky clothing confessions you'd like to share? Any designers or styles you have sworn you would never touch- and yet find yourself embracing, despite yourself? Please share in the comments!

P.S. Congratulations to the winner of my birthday giveaway- Najeema of A Stylized Hysteria!

good for you - like you said "never say never". I say that about store/designer collaborations but hey, you never know - I just might one day! (-:

I used to swear up and down I'd never touch skinny jeans and skinny-cut trousers when they first came out. Now they're all I wear.

you're a Wang ban, hee hee hee! I used to love him but as he got more and more popular and I saw his prices increase I got huffy - now I say I'll never buy him at full price ;)

I think he very very talented and skilled designer, and am actually glad he is uberpopular cause he deserves it. But I know what you mean. I don't have n=bans, but allergies definetely! :-)

the strength of sales trumps any clothing bans and friendship pacts :P such a simple and gorgeous dress!

Yes. Harem pants!! I swore I'd never wear them, but I do have a subtle version now. They aren't the crazy drop crotch ones though :)

I love this dress - I recently tried it on too (my mom even tried it on!). So simple and classy.

After a long hard week of schlepping all over this city that endearing post made me laugh a little I totally understand where you are coming from... I had a anti GAP thing for years and I was gifted a Gap Body tee a few years ago and I fell in love the fit was super soft and it was a mere pennies so I went to the gap (gasp) and brought more..I have never been back and don't even know if Gap Body is still in existence but I totally relate where you are coming from you have a great blog
