22 and 23 August 2013: Fancy 500!!

My 500th post! I was hoping to unveil my pinup photos today, but alas, no go. Still! I dressed super fancy and looked lovely and that is a celebration all its own. Yay 500!

Grey skies, sunny dress. This is a delightful dress to wear, always brings a smile to my face. A necessary boost of confidence on a day I was doing a presentation at work.

Swishy swirly dress! I never wear this because it’s so fancy. And then I put it on, and I realize, it’s not that fancy – it’s just beautiful. But at the same time, I recognize that I will continue to feel it’s too fancy and not wear it! So I will continue to pull it out rarely and greatly enjoy the times I do wear it.

Also, dude, my hair. I love what it is doing. It’s so sleek! It’s so smooth! It’s so not at all what it usually does! I celebrate that as well.

I love the fabric and patterns on this dress – the flowers are gorgeous, the blue a lovely lake or sky depending on viewpoint, the delicious grass. And then there’s the hem:

Is that blood? Is my lovely tranquil dress a murder scene? How very CSI.

A dressing room post and announcement coming up next.

Here’s to 500 and 500 more! Thanks to you all for being on this journey with me. xoxo

  2. Congrats on the 500th post! I just hit 100 recently, so my hat is definitely off to you! Also, I love the second dress! The red is kind of random though!

    • Thanks! Isn’t it gorgeous?? I was so excited when a confluence of sales and gift cards made it affordable. Every dress looks different – fabric placement varied wildly. I loved how the pink flowers made a sort of belt look, but I somehow missed the red in the grass. So funny.
