Have I mentioned how much I like pretty things? And how happy shopping makes me? Well, let me say it again in the context of showing off my latest purchase:
(That's taffeta on the skirt, which is gorgeously iridescent in a way that doesn't show up here, and jersey on the bodice. Imagine it with pearls and stiletto heels.)
This is the first fancy dress I've bought in several years, and I'll be taking it out for a walk at Victoria's wedding in July and the formal dinner component of my college reunion in a couple of weeks. Even at half price on Bluefly I'm not sure that I should have spent the money. . . but what the hell. If I'm going to be flying solo, I might as well look good!
