It's not unusual for me to leave home with a tag dangling from a new sweater. . . or any other article of clothing. It's a habit of mine to leave the tag on until I'm positive the item will be making permanent residence in my closet.
Sometimes this means neglecting to remove that little paper reminder of the item's value. Fortunately, the tag for this dress didn't make it out of my home. But I did try it on one too many times before deciding it was keeper. I bought this dress for my Rome/Paris trip last summer, but it wasn't until yesterday that I finally cut the tags. Yes, it was past its 30 or 90 day return policy, but old habits die hard.
