While my heart belongs to the Kelly dress forever, I do recognize the value of expanding my Bernie Dexter horizons. The Saturday Night dress intrigued me for a long time before I finally took the plunge. I liked the neckline and the way that the straps balanced perfectly on Bernie's shoulders in all her photos, but underbust seams and I haven't historically gotten along, so I held off. When the McCall's print popped on Zulily a while back, though, I threw it in my cart alongside the Antonella.
Since I'm trying out a new style, I figured I'd also try out some new poses.The print of this dress is so unique and fun! It makes me wish I knew how to sew, so that I wouldn't secretly feel, when wearing it, like I was constantly 10 seconds away from having this one particular guy I went to middle school pop out from behind a bush and shout 'poser!' at me.
I am proud of that calf muscle!
In a plot twist that will surprise precisely nobody, I decided to jazz things up with red accessories. It's practically a rule: if it can be worn with red, it must be worn with red!
In other news, I've had Halloween-related conversations with a couple of friends this week, and it made me realize how completely unprepared I am. With one exception, I've always had an absolutely horrendous time deciding on a costume. (That exception, if you're wondering, was when I dressed up as Bilbo Baggins in fifth grade and NOBODY knew who he was because the films hadn't yet come out. How embarrassing!) Actually, the more I think about my illustrious Halloween-costume career, the more disasters keep surfacing from the very small pool of Memories I Repressed.
Thus, I need your help! What should I be for Halloween?
