    How to use "Slightingly" in context?

    Slightingly, I had been eyeing up the dress in the shop window for weeks before finally purchasing it. It was the perfect fit and colours, and I knew I would love wearing it. Unfortunately, when I tried it on, I noticed a small rip in the skirt.

    Rather than having the dress altered, I decided to just wear it as is. I'm not disappointed with the purchase, and I actually quite like the slightly patched look. It makes the dress more unique and memorable.
