I got some.
When I was younger I would have looked at that top picture and cringed, unfortunately. Why did I want to be straight up and down? (Just kidding, that’s rhetorical—I know why.)
This outfit is so awesome it kind of makes me feel like Superwoman.

I love the design. That huge starburst/flower thing on the bottom half, and the band around my hips.

Saving for a Sunny Day
You know when it’s a cold rainy day in the dead of winter and you find a cute summer top on the markdown rack? And you buy it because it’s a great deal, of course, but also because it’s like a reminder that it’ll be sunny and warm again before you know it, and you’ll get to bust it out and celebrate.
That’s what this outfit was about.

Actually, separates from different places, but it all works together fine. I like how it ended up looking like the mid-60’s.

Just a black dress.
It’s actually more of a delivery device for the necklace, which I’ve been waiting to wear.

It’s all about the squares and circles today. I think I got a C in geometry in high school, which was kind of devastating. It’s OK now.

Going to The 25th Annual Putnam Co. Spelling Bee at Cal.
JP is me (Jane Paris); this dress, which I think of as my Jackson Pollack dress; and Jonathan Poullard, UC Berkeley’s Dean of Students, who sponsored a really nice event yesterday that made me feel all warm and fuzzy about my profession.

When a Linguistics major takes your picture…
he might ask you to cover up the “d” and the “w” in the “Dwinelle” sign because it’s “such an unattractive combination of sounds.” (Maybe he said unusual—I was a little baffled and it took me a minute to process.)
I love this BRIGHT blouse.

I love her beautiful prints, and that even current ones still signify a certain period in the 1960’s. Thanks for all the beauty, Lilly!
Other ways I’ve worn this skirt here and here, and here’s a vintage Lilly dress.

Wait, is that my nightgown?
Oh, no, I see my platforms, it must be a real dress. But it does kind of look like a nightgown. Sigh. Internet shopping. The fabric looks better online than it does in real life. And the wrinkling, just from your morning commute! I hate that. Oh well, I like the stripes and angles.

And just a note about the CEO shakeup at JC Penney: even though this dress is a bit of a disappointment, I was really starting to like their new look. It was a pretty dramatic change. I wish they would have given it more time.
