Ok, what the heck. I look totally cross-eyed in this picture. It's like my left eye took a little stroll too far right. When I zoom in on the picture with my photo editor it looks relatively normal, but here it looks like I could use a visit to the optometrist...or even worse, the loony bin.
Anyway, please ignore the weirdo eyeball and concentrate on the outfit.
This dress is one of the only items I've ever purchased at Anthropologie. I also bought a pair of pants there once, but they are (still) awaiting alteration and have never been worn.
I'm a fan of this dress but have to be in a certain mood to wear it. It's just a little too prairie-ish for my everyday style. In fact, I wore this dress to the theater production of Little House on the Prairie this past fall. That's a great memory. I took one of my favorite people in the whole wide world...Greyley Kate...who had just turned 11...who is the precious offspring of Girly Muse. Man, I wish I had taken good pictures of our day together - bad, BAD blogger.
I might feel a little better about the dress in general if it were shorter. This length isn't terrible, but it makes me feel just a bit dowdy. And I have to figure out a better way to cover up the cleavage, being that the neckline is so low. The ruffled henley works in a pinch. Steve wasn't up early enough to tie the sash in the back for me, so I experimented by wrapping it around and tying it in the front. I think I like it better this way. And those adorable pink high heels...I do so wish they were easier to walk in. Perfection sure is hard to attain (sigh).
