though today should mark the completion of OWOP, i missed one day in the beginning, so you'll be getting what i consider to be the piece de resistance tomorrow. of course, i'll be on a plane, and a plane is no place for a silk sundress in my opinion (oh yes! c'est silk!) but it will give me something nice to do while i'm at the airport. you'll excuse me, yes? 'kaythanksyou'retheBEST!
however! aujourd'hui, it's my only restyle for the week, and it is MOST DEFINITELY polyester. as it was first worn as a skirt on my day one OWOP, my right brain pondered saving it for tomorrow to close out the circle... how neat and tidy that would be... but i wore this today in my quest for some black (or at least something in the vicinity of black), figuring these colors would keep me happy. so, truth in advertising, and all.
i kind of look like i'm wearing a wig. people actually ask me that, you know. "i love your hair." "oh thank you." "is it yours?" then sometimes, as an added bonus, they pull it. i guess i can't blame them. quite a mop, there.
le maxi skirt becomes le strapless dress. this spandexy stuff is quite forgiving, so it doesn't give you muffintop round the bustage when pulled up. hooray for man made stretch!
here's some more innards porn for you. i miss my maniacal serger!
good god almighty get that girl some hand cream. do you beat the hell out of your hands? how do you sewists with a fascination for polish do it?

in a shaker, stir with ice (do not shake) and strain into glass. garnish with lime wedge.
ps: thanks again for the thoughts. been too busy to get back to you, but y'all rock.
