An Exact Copy


I so dig this dress.

Not just because it cost me $1,

Or because it's one of the least complicated wardrobe events I've had all year,

But mainly because it looks exactly like a dress that I'd pinned just the day before I found it.

Okay.  So maybe it's not exactly like it but it is awfully close ... okay, close enough to make me happy ... to a dress featured by my favorite fashion blogger.*



And so it made sense to deliberately copy her poses too.

  Obviously, I'm even better at this when I'm doing it on purpose.


And I've never come closer, I think, than right here:
 
 
It's nearly an exact copy!
Right?  Right?

HI-LOng Time Coming

I bought this skirt more than a year ago and, believe it or not, before the black polka-dot skirt thing and before the high-low thing too.  (At least before EVERYbody was doing it!)

The second I saw it, I knew that when the time was right, I would wear it backwards.  (I bought it at the end of a season.)

But as the right time was obviously approaching, and then here, and then passing me by, it was all too clear that Just Backwards wasn't going to cut it.



So I cut it first and then I wore it backwards!

All but the shoes came from the Bargain Box.

Labor Day...


As I was figuring this out the night before, my family told me I was funny-looking ~ which is fine.  It usually means I'm at least headed in the direction I want.
