I found this dress on a recent visit to Mesh, a local consignment store where I occasionally sell some of my own stuff, but more frequently end up taking home someone else's. I liked that it combines three of my favourite colours, and the different fabrics make it kind of fancy, even though the shape is very simple. Paired with my red tights and blue shiny New York boots, it feels a bit like a grownup version of the kind of dresses I used to wear in public school, with leotards that sagged at the knees and ankles. Now that I look at the photo, there is something rather childlike about my pose, like I'm about to pull my dress over my head and run around. Dare I say it....it's actually kind of....CUTE.
Curtise, who is always flashing her colourful petticoats, I couldn't resist showing off the frilly skirt I wore to maintain some level of modesty, as the dress turned out to be much shorter than I expected
Yes, that is a very tiny handbag dangling from my left hand. I found it on my last trip to Talize and aside from the fact I needed a new change purse (does anyone still use change purses?), I was completely taken with the fact that it was a perfect miniature of the snap-closured pocketbooks my mom used to carry, with a chain strap, and pretty lining inside. The cashier who rang it in for me when I purchased it could not stop saying how incredibly cute it was, as has everyone who saw me with it.
And speaking of Cute....
This is my bestest dog pal, Emmett. He's a Havanese who belongs to one of our students, who will occasionally bring him into our office for a visit. Emmett loves these visits because he is showered with affection, especially from me. I have no pets and am allergic to most dog breeds, but not him, so I take advantage of the opportunity to get my fill of puppy love!
That is one spoiled and happy pup!
