Feather Dress on a Bridge

November 9, 2011

I decided to try to make better use of this dress, but it’s a difficult piece because the cotton voile is such a summery fabric. It’s also a one-shoulder, so the line isn’t good under a sweater and I think it looks kind of odd across the chest. It’s a favorite dress though, so I’m continually looking for new ways to wear it. I think a cropped jacket would work, although I don’t have any right now.

Packing is so time consuming! I’ve hardly been doing anything else and surviving mainly on coffee. Hopefully things will settle soon.

Baby Owl Goes to the Gift Exchange

Worn on Tuesday 21 Dec 2010

I haven’t worn this dress since October, but I’ve been wanting to try it out during the winter.  It definitely looks more like a skirt with the cardigan buttoned up over it.  I just tucked in the shoulder bow ribbons and tied the waist ribbon over the cardigan.  

I wore this to work and then to the holiday party I was most looking forward to this year with my friends from high school, middle school, grade school, kindergarten, and pre-school.  Okay, I only went to pre-school with one of them but we’ve all been friends for a long time!  Our 2010 family photo, silly edition:

And yes, my friends are still making whoo whooooo noises at me, despite the fact that those really are quail feathers!  

Merry Christmas, everyone, happy holidays, I wish you good company and a good night!

This is forever known as the baby owl dress… I had to ask two people if I would look like a baby owl, and getting the negative I of course ordered it straight away.  But now someone just can’t stop whooo whooo whoooooooing at me!  I guess baby quail would actually be more appropriate, but I have no idea what sounds they make.  

It’s definitely becoming fall now!  I’m so glad — I’ve still been wearing summer clothing and feeling rather silly!  I might even be able to wear tights this week!!

P. S. Does anyone have any experience with camera remotes that operate on radio frequency?  I have some epic fail photos coming up with what is probably my last attempt at using it before it’s getting sent back.  Even the ones that are in focus look… out of focus.  Am I just dumb or are they actually pretty much impossible to use with autofocus?
