hooray new things!

Tuesday night, I went to this totally amazing party. Since I had just gotten back from the West Coast, meaning many of my clothes are still in the mail (those that I couldn't shove into my painfully undersized suitcase, and that, clearly, meaning MANY), and since I was feelin' deceptively flush, I went to Beacon's Closet that afternoon with the notion of just, straight up, purchasing something. No trading, no dilly dallying and putting things on hold and then forgetting about them: no. If I found a dress and shoes that fit, I was prepared to throw down the Wamu Gold right then and there.


So, with this new found freedom coursing through my veins, I obviously expected to find zip, zilch. That would just be toooo easy, right? Well ha! For once, I won. I found this pretty little dress (actually, it was once considerably less little, and being sans sewing machine, I was forced to just hack it off a few minutes before rushing out the door... just don't look too closely) and,


these shoes which, yes, tore my feet to all hell within the first 15 minutes of stumbling around between the subway and the South Street Sea Port. I'm sorry I don't have a picture of me wearing all this. So maybe I was too busy getting down to some serious talk of Gem Sweaters. So sue me.

I too am guilty of the hem hack! It's not even that I don't have access to a sewing machine, I'm just really lazy! It really is a pretty dress though, lovely colour. Char x

Good tidings, This of course comes with no obligation to even view my blog, but yours is one of my favourites so I've added it to a those lovely little 'blogs i read' lists. It feels a little strange to do this and not notify you so here is notification. (Blogging etiquette is an unknown territory). xxx

i adore that dress so much!

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Thanks everyone! I'll admit, even when I did have easy access to a sewing machine I pulled the ol' hack-n-run on...most occasions. I'm working on mending my ways (step one: retrieve former sewing machine from California, no easy task I assure you).

And tara, I'm sad we didn't get to boogie down at the party, but I'm glad we at least got to say hi. Oooh, and I totally spilled a glass of water ALMOST all over Debbie and her friend. It was priceless, obviously. Go me!
