When good shopping goes bad

This is the picture of the Mango dress I fell in love with. It is called Zulu and I saw it in the catalogue after leaving the shop two days ago. I vowed to go back as soon as possible and make it mine. It would become my precious. Well, love at first sight doesn't always have a happy ending.
Cue dramatic music, preferably whiny violins. This is the imaginary dialogue between the dress and me.
"What's wrong? You looked so happy when the salesgirl handed me over. You were smiling as you walked towards the dressing room" said the dress. "It's not your fault, it's mine" I answered back. "No, actually it is your fault. You looked so perfect in the photo. So summery and colorful, yet easy to wear. You would look so great with white accessories". "Then what's the matter?" asked the dress. I hesitated for a moment, but I couldn't hold it in any longer. "It's just... YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU WERE 100% POLYESTER! You deceived me! I had so many dreams for us... taking long walks, drinking cocktails together in nice sea-side bars watching the sunset, even going to nice semi-formal events. But now... Sorry, but it's just not gonna work between us. Goodbye."
Αnd I walked away, just like that. I have to admit, I still think about it. I still wonder if I made the right decision. But, I just couldn't handle a fabric exactly like polyester lining on a dress made to be worn in full summer heat. Just wrong!
