A Dress I Can’t Possess

I was immediately drawn to this dress although on second thought, why?  Not that it isn’t a beautiful dress.    

I just don’t think it would look good on me.

I think it’s the sleeves.

I also like the … not sure what they would be called — pleats?  The maybe-called-pleats down the front.

That bow is a mistake though.

The blue tights are a nice touch.

And they work well next to that mauve bag.

I think

we need

a close-up.

Yeah, it’s definitely the sleeves, and that bow is a mistake.

  1. In my next life I want events I can go to in such things. As it is, I can pretty much survive with jeans and yoga pants.
    Speaking of beautiful dresses, what did you decide about your book launch party?

  2. I agree. The bow is definitely a mistake. Why don’t those people talk to us before putting out merchandise like this?
