Why is it that the long weekends are always followed by the shortest weeks? Today felt crazy from start to finish, from whacky thunder and lightning storms (which we never get here) to a gorgeous sunny afternoon. Bizarre.
Anyway. Blood red.here back in April (but it was a good outfit, 3rd one down). I washed it after that incident, because the cuffs were soaked in blood from my nose getting smushed, even though it said "dry clean only". I have no issue washing cotton with polyester lining! I did lay it flat to dry, but I've been eyeing it warily in my closet ever since.
I'm happy to report: I did not fall today! Although I did miss a bit of blood on one of the cuffs.
here in July.
here with satin and tweed ruffles. I wore them four times this summer, which is not a huge amount, unless you have over 80 pairs of shoes - then, it's a pretty good average. Remember, gals, the more shoes you have the longer they last!
