my contribution: my birthday dress, of course!
what did you think i was gonna wear?
of course, i already made a giant, extensive post regarding the damn construction on that damn dress – do have a look-see if you want to lurk the inside of the bodice, or pictures of the back, or whatever. i’m not gonna go through that again! instead, i decided to wear it to work today. i work in an office. although we are a little more lenient than most office dress-codes (no suits, jeans on friday, tattooed-with-no-sleeves ok), i’m still preeeeetty sure i can’t bust in wearing a strappy bustier dress with ruffles all over it. i had to tone it down a little!
i just put a form-fitting cardigan over the dress & belted it. easy! and can we talk about how awesome that skirt is? i think i might use the pattern to make *just* the skirt – wouldn’t it be scrumptious in a wool suiting? yes please!
the tomato art festival is in a little over a week (august 13th, yo!) and i am so so so so behind on making stuff for my booth. whoopsie
i ran out of stuffing to stuff them with, so i gotta holler at the craft store this weekend.
