Okay. Whew. I'm back from my (click for a picture of the dress I spoke in) and ready to think about dresses again.
(Okay, to be fair, I never really STOP thinking about dresses — that's why it's called an 'obsession' — but now I can think coherently, or as coherently as I ever do, about them.)
Like this one, from eBay seller . Oh, how I wish it were in a larger size … this one is a B32. Surplice top, midriff band, full or slim skirt … what's not to love? And you could easily put nice pockets in those front skirt seams.
This would be gorgeous in a pale butter-yellow with gray grosgrain ribbon trim; very pretty in pale blue with white, and downright sophisticated in gray and white. (Of course it would be very nice in black, but no one ever really needs a push to imagine a dress in plain black, so I don't usually bring it up.)
Sorry about the spotty posting lately — I have some posts in the queue, so it should be a steady flow of dress-related content this week. (There might also be a new "Secret Lives" in the next day or two …)
