So, this was in my closet…with a tag on it. Shame, right! I was going to sell it at our closet sale (still might) but I decided to wear it to the Curvy Con. I bought it from Fashion To Figure when I still lived in Baltimore. That was over three years ago. But because I love you, I’ve found a few dups!
