Wearing: NO PANTS. June is 30 Days of Dresses in a whole Summer of Dresses! Wear a skirt or dress, because it's summer and you're excellent. I know I'm in.
Blouse: Thrifted and tailored Talbots. Skirt: "Vintage" Banana Republic. Sandals: Gap. Necklace: Swapped with a friend for a pint of chocolate milk. Lip color: Yes To Carrots 'Ready Red.'
This look is either 1. what Lady Sybil Crawley or Valancy Stirling might wear on safari or 2. turn-of-the-century librarian chic. I wore it to housesit some kittens, and yes, they were very impressed with my sartorial choices.
Winning: The eShakti giveaway hosted by Amber! I've been oggling this clothing shop for months, and I'm so excited to finally acquire one of their dresses. After much wibbling, I settled on the Her Fifties Sundress. And as novice dressmaker who struggles with fit, you know I opted for the free custom-sizing!
I fully intend to pair it with some frivolous wedges.
Cooking: Homemade enchilada sauce (so much cheaper, and so much better, than anything from a can) and Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie (my meringue melted into sugary syrup. I suspect that wasn't supposed to happen.).
Having panicked dreams about: Getting everything ready for vacation. We've got everything from LARP battles in Pennsylvania to 60th anniversary parties in Indiana packed into the next couple weeks, and it's my busiest work season. Gah!
