*I wanted to leave the swap post on top, but it was messing with my Facebook feed so I had to drop it. Please check below if you are in the Dallas area this weekend, October 24th, we would love to have you!*
I can’t believe I owned this dress for so long before I figured out how to wear it. I held on to it through a couple of closet clear outs, feeling that I might still have a use for it, and I’m glad I did.
Also, I am a huge fan of this season’s proliferation of knit moto jackets. Can I get an Amen? The first time I saw such a thing was last year, and I ordered one from DELiA*s for 40 bucks that ended up being just a wee bit too small and as a result, I gave it to Lara, who wore it out, almost literally. (Lara rubs holes in the elbows of sweaters and jackets. I’m not sure how, but she’s pretty consistent.) Now I have a couple of my own (as well as my denim Alexander McQueen and my two leather ones. I like moto jackets.)
This one in particular is a great deal and really well made for $15.50. I can’t recommend it enough. I’m wearing a size medium here, and a Large in the State Fair pics for reference.*
I’ve been trying to teach myself to braid. I had short hair when I was growing up and as a result have zero braiding skills. I’m getting better. I can finally do one that’s acceptable to wear in public. I’m not good at it just yet, but soon, I hope!
*YES, I have two. I’m an idiot.
