ooooh aren't i pretty. i think soooo much of myself. i am the most beeyootiful girl in the whole wide world! you love me! you want to marry me! YOU KNOW IT!
just look at my cute little sleeves, they are so coy, so flirtatious, they tempt you with their unexpected pleats, you didn't even see them coming and now you can think of nothing else!!!
never mind the fact that i probably put them in backwards which resulted in an armsyce (that's armhole for you laypeople) that's lower than the dead sea. just never you mind that, lovey!
wooooeeeee and wider than the grand canyon. avert your burning hot gaze! look, instead, upon the pleats! the delicious pleats! THEY ARE EXQUISITE! aaaaaah, le sigh, you are too entranced by the sight of unintended flesh: is that an arm bulge? is that her back? armpit cleavage? that is SO hot.
I SAID I KNOW YOU LOVE IT!!!
now, i made this about two weeks ago, and i do wish i could remember if the extreme dip is the fault of the pattern or the fault of the gin...so maybe y'all can tell me. anyone out there tried this diddy? don't get me wrong, i lurve it, i'm keeping it, i've rocked it not once, but twice in public now, leaving people lying in my stunning wake because I AM AWESOME I THOUGHT WE ALREADY ESTABLISHED THAT, but maybe i'll just raise that curve a li'l bit next time we dance.
(although it is a little snug. i may have dried it on hot while i was on vacation. i guess i could wear it soaking wet and try to stretch it out again--)
I'VE GONE TOO FAR. STOP DROOLING. GO TAKE A COLD SHOWER.
