So this outfit was inspired by Veteran's day, at first. I thought the double-breasted brass buttons on this rarely-worn dress looked vaguely militaristic. As you can see, I went an entirely different route. Thigh-high knit socks, a cozy cardigan, and a straw hat don't exactly scream army/navy by any stretch of the imagination. Oh well, it's the thought that counts! I doubt many of my readers are Veterans, but if there are any Vets out there: thank you! I hope you know how truly appreciative we are of everything you have done for this great nation!
The reason this dress is rarely-worn is that it is strangulation-small, especially the cap sleeves. It was miniature to begin with, but I bought it super-on-sale at Urban Outfitters last year and then it was shrunk in the dryer by someone who shall remain nameless. I forgave him right away because I am guilty of shrinking his clothes on occasion, but I still wish I could move my arms a little more easily. Oh well!
Speaking of someone who shall remain nameless (any relation? can't disclose that information...), K and I have been busy little birds lately--we've finally got around to building our little nest. Last night we went out and bought curtains for the living room, and today I bought a few art prints for the walls (because the vast expanse of white was seriously diminishing the "coziness" effect). I promise I'll post some interior shots once the walls look a little less sterile.
I've decided that I'm sick because I was trying to eat less bread and my body wasn't having it. I am a carboholic, and I'm not even kidding. I fully intend to eat a loaf of bread for dinner tonight.
