For me, it is this dress:
I first saw this dress 10 years ago in a book I have about early 60s fashion. I love this dress. I think its beautiful and has that perfect silhouette indicative of that time. I also love that its technically a sundress, but the colors make it one that can be worn in the fall as well. I saw this dress on Ebay maybe a year later. I wanted it but it was too big at a 28 inch waist and I was tired of taking in all my dresses. Oh well. About a year later I saw it again on Ebay. Same size and everything. Odd. That was just the beginning though.
A couple years ago in Vegas my friend Teresah wore this exact dress. I remember thinking how odd it was that of all people she would own it because I've never actually seen it on another human being, even though by that time I'd seen it on Ebay at least 3 times. Now I dont know her measurements but I could see her fitting easily into a 28 inch waist. I didnt say anything to her though.
Maybe a year later I saw it AGAIN on Ebay. Same size. Funny. And low and behold while surfing Ebay today I see it again. Same size!!! I swear this dress is haunting me. I love it but at this point I dont think I could own it. Its just too weird. I have seen this dress come up on Ebay at least 6 times over the years. All with 28 inch waists. Is it the same dress?? I dont know. But it seems odd that this dress wouldve only come in that size.
