i almost brought along a change of clothes. i'm imagining ripped seams or some other tragic fail. but i'm being brave and i'm wearing my dress today!
i hemmed it last night and stole a hook and eye from another dress (i'll fix that later, i just didn't want to go to the store). the dress is a little stiff. i didn't wash the fabric before sewing this up (impatience over here). i thought i was going to go unnoticed but one of the girls at work called me out. (also when i say "girls," know that i am the youngest person in my department and one of the few that does not have children or grandchildren. so "girls" is all-encompassing.) i did tell them that i was making a dress and would try to wear it to work, but i guess she could tell i made it? although she did ask me the other day if i made my skirt and it was a store-bought skirt. so maybe she's just going to ask me every day now. and then all of the other girls made me stand up and had to come over and check it out (blushing over here). oh and i wore some little strappy gold sandals that i already had, because i didn't do any shopping over the weekend. And the photos…
|business in the front|
|still business in the back|
ok ok, so you need proof that i'm actually wearing it, geez you're so demanding…
|you like that bathroom mirror shot|
|my legs aren't that dark, it's the lighting - look you can see my toothbrush|
what, you need to see the back too? fine, but only because you asked nicely.
|don't mind the messy bun|
so it's not perfect by any means, but it's wearable, i think. well i am wearing it. but some would say, "just because you can wear something, doesn't mean you should." ok, i'm being too critical.
|you love seeing my camera in the photo|
i'm excited to move on to something else now. on to the next one. - yes, i quote jay-z.
