Whenever I have a "miss" on an outfit, I generally bounce back the same way every time: I wear a dress.here), where I wore it twice, here and here.
The cardi pulls out another wear this summer, last seen here with my turquoise origami dress in June.
my jammy dress, it's so nice to have an orphan dress where you just wear the same thing every time. You don't have to think too hard, and you know you'll feel and look good.
Cardigan (Peter Nygard, consignment), dress (Planet, thrifted), shoes (Jump For the People, consignment), earrings (Aldo Accessories).
So remember back in July when I got some of my Aunt Kathy's mom's stuff from the 70s? Of course you do, but allow me refresh your memory (scroll down). I got this fabulous Hawaiian dress, remember?
But what I didn't mention then is that I tried on another dress (and a fuzzy hat) while I was there:
|My boob is looking at you.|
"But Sheila," you're saying, "Why haven't we seen you wear this glorious and amazing dress this summer?"
It was WAY too tight. I barely got it done up and it was so tight it gave me Boobular Mass. Sorry, only my sportsbra is permitted to do that. And the neck was very choky and tight (gak!). It was also stained (and it didn't look like the stains would come out), and super heavy and hot to wear. I reluctantly left it for donation. It's all about the karma. Someone else will find it and love it.
But isn't it beautiful? I'm so glad I have this picture to remember it by.
