We haven’t discussed fashion-y stuff in a while, have we? So I wore the following dress earlier in the week to the OK Corral–hence the flashback–and I wanted to share because I love everything about this dress. A few things: pardon the view of le toilette. Such are the risks of bathroom selfies. Secondly, I am wearing nary a stitch of makeup in these photos and I loves it. In case you’re wondering, I simply didn’t feel like putting a thing on my face. Don’t you love being a woman and doing whatever you like? Now, onwards.

This dress. This dress. First of all, by now, you know that I typically forage the racks of Ross for my stuff (I won’t even link back; basically 90% of what I wear is from there) and this dress is no different. I happened to randomly find it one evening and grabbed it immediately, mostly because I loved the designs and textile-y of it and because it was heavy enough for the autumn at the time. I first wore it to a show I went to at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC; it was dressy enough for the event but not overtly so, which was fine for me (although, these days, people sadly put on jeans and sneaks for an event with the National Symphony Orchestra. Le sigh). Anyway, the first time I wore it, it was a bit snug, but c’est la vie. This time, much less snug and way more comfortable. Don’t you love the way it gives me hips that I don’t have?

Oh, and are you wondering why I have boots on in April? I’ll tell you. Winter has hijacked springtime. And none of us can pay the ransom.

Yours in Shivering in April (and Likely May),
