Don't ask me when I bought this dress because I can't tell you the exact year. But I definitely know I was still in school, possibly in 11th-12th grade or 9th grade. See? I don't remember. What I remember is this Arithalia number was a love at first sight. It has a beautiful cut and a perfect fit—surprisingly, for all my sizes. It has a ribbon at the back so you can tie it as tightly as you please, but it will still be comfortable and loose enough thanks to its elastic waist at the back. The padded chest area enables me to wear it without bra—although I've never done so outside of the house. Due to its dark and muted colours, I tend to break it out in the winter. But because it's made and purchased in Indonesia, it is perfectly suitable for warmer weather. There's no chance in the foreseeable future that I'll throw it away, too, since it holds so many precious memories with Firu.
