Look at my cute new dress! It was $220 and I got it for $70. What a steal! Isn't it adorable?
Oh, look at the beautiful pleats at the bottom! How do I properly care for this garment? Let me read the label:
"Cool iron IF NEEDED"
Here, let me wash it. Oh my, what has happened to the pleats? Post-washing pleats are to the left on the photo. Is it possible to wash this dress and NOT need the iron?
How, oh how will I get my pleats back? I'll tell you: I will fold and pin every damn pleat to the ironing board and press. It will take an eternity. I will never, ever wash this dress again, no matter how bad it smells.
