Whether it be a size 4 or 14, you want to make sure that item fits you the way the designer intended or the way you imagined it in your head (minus the screaming shirt buttons and the tugging fabrics). Come to think of it, I rather my clothes fit me perfectly than to try and wedge myself in the last size 4 on the rack. I know we all have seen the lone clothing item on the rack, and it being one size smaller than what we would typically pick up, we shrug it off and buy it anyway. We buy it, not only because it is the last one, but because we might be able to make the size work. ALMOST DOESN'T COUNT! Just because you kinda sorta can make it work by putting a jacket over the partially zipped zipper (we are all guilty)you buy it! #STOPTHEFOOLERY PUT IT DOWN!!!!!!!! You dont have to get it. Its strange we would feel more confident in a dress that is a size smaller than we would if a dress actually fits you properly one size up.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Fashion Junkies slowly back away from the one size too small and find the size that is most flattering to your body even if that is a size 12. You're Welcome (you'll thank me later)!
