Spring Break: Week 2

I happen to get a week for Spring Break in college. Yay college.  I also happen to work with multiple school districts around here so I get school holidays off. This included their Spring Break. So I got two weeks for Spring Break this year. Win. For the first week I did the whole bum-around-the-house-live-it-up-in-Vegas thing.  For week two I repeated step one in Spring Break: Week 1.  I sat around for a good long while and then I went with the fam to Park City for a day.  It was awesome. We shopped our little hearts out.  And I happened to try on the one dress in the store with the broken zipper. It was such a cute dress. Look!
I showed Alyssa and then I went back into the dressing room to change when I realized that it was going to be more of a challenge than I anticipated. I struggled with the zipper for about 10 minutes before I sent a desperate text to Alyssa that read "I am literally trapped in this dress".  She came to my rescue and we struggled with the zipper for several more minutes.  Here is what happened: nothing. Yup.  We pulled this and tugged that. She tried to hang on the zipper and towards the end of 10 minutes we had hamburger for fingers.  I was at the point where I thought I was going to be forced to buy the dress because I couldn't get out of it.  It even earned itself the nickname of "death dress" because I thought I was going to die before I got it off.  The struggle continued for awhile longer when Alyssa and I decided it was best to bring my dad into it,  That's right.  I had to summon my dad to save me from a dress. As he was coming back to the store (my family had already left) I had a genius idea. I took off all of my clothes and tried to slip it over my shoulders.  I had to work with it for a few more minutes but it finally gave.  When I had my clothes back on and my head back in order I put the dress back on the hanger and tried to zip it up.  It would not budge. I left it on the hanger in a disheveled manner and booked it. 

I need a long, long break from Park City.

I had a similar problem to a smaller degree today. How come it is so difficult to get zippers over the waistline seam that so many dresses have?! It seems like a big design flaw. It seems like your dress had a bigger problem, though, which is a shame because it's very pretty.

I think I got a text something like..."We have a 911 in the dressing room...HELP!!!"

I don't think this picture very accurately shows how hard we were laughing. I distinctly remember tears, lots of tears. Probably in the top 5 funniest moments of my life thus far.
