The Peach Colored Dress by Cindy Im When all else fails, let fate determine your destiny. That's what I did when I went in search of the perfect party dress. Several hours before lunch, you are shopping for a dress at Macy's so you will be able to look nice for a fancy party. As you are wandering around the dress section of the store, you spy a beautiful, attractive red dress. It's an absolutely perfect long, and one piece dress. It's also red! The red dress extends down to about the middle of your calves and it has real jewels lining from the right shoulder and wrapping around the dress, like an extended twirl. The dress has one centimeter spaghetti strap sleeves, crisscrossing at the back, causing the back line of the dress to reach down to about the middle of your shoulder blades. Along with the dress is a hairpiece, a pretty clip on rose just to go in your hair and matching red heeled-shoes. This dress is made of silk, colored red, has spaghetti straps, comes with matching shoes and a hairpiece, also sparkles when it catches the light, and you know it's perfect. It also fits you. However, it's too expensive! Except you really want it. At the same moment, you also see another dress,similar, but simpler. Red, spaghetti straps, satin, and very shimmery. It's also very pretty. Unfortunately, or fortunately, you really want the expensive dress so you're not too keen on buying the other one. Luckily, an intervention shows up. You're getting hungry! Therefore, you follow your stomach and eat Chinese food at Panda Express. While you eat, you ponder upon the dresses you have seen at the store. You are so lost in thought that you don't realize you've eaten everything-and that's a lot of food you ordered. Consequently, when you go back to the store and try the dress on again, you realize it no longer fits because you've eaten too much! Unfortunately the store closes before you can buy anything. Panicking, you hurry over to your friend's house to see if she has any dresses you can wear. Luckily, she's home and she has just the thing you need. You end up borrowing your friend's dress and it looks a lot better because it's peach colored, has soft floral patterns that aren't too noticeable, and two dragon designs whose heads are imprinted on the shoulder straps of the dress. The dragon's bodies twine around the dress and their tails end up intertwining at the back. One pair of dragon eyes glows with rubies and the other pair glows with sapphires. In addition, there are a few gems that sparkle along the scales and the claws glitter with many colors. The dress gently flows down to your ankles, with a slit up the left side, going up to your knee. This allows you enough freedom to move around without being restricted to a few inches. In fact, it looks kind of like those Chinese dresses! On the collar of the dress, there is a slight cut in the front-side-left, like how it looks in pictures. Instead of the traditional flower, there is an emerald. Another part of the dress is two wrist bands that are soft and smooth with miniature dragons on each band. The set is completed with a pair of peach colored heeled shoes. The night you attend the party, many heads turn to look at you and your gorgeous dress. Looking around, you spot someone wearing the exact dress you wanted so before. However, you're glad you ended up being unable to buy it. After all, if you had bought it, chances are, you would have never known about the dress you are wearing tonight. Tweet
