Still sick, still stuck at home! I am feeling somewhat better, at least, and will probably be accompanying Tia to a bridal-gown-trying-on-fest later on today, so at least that’s progress. (Do they allow real cameras in bridal shops? We shall see!)
Meanwhile, this is what I wore to work last Wednesday, which was also the day of our department’s holiday party, which I had the fun of planning. I mostly took a backseat to the two other, more party-planning-experienced ladies in the group, and everything turned out pretty well!
I wondered whether I would feel a little overdressed in this outfit, but said eff it and wore it anyway. Overdressing is half the fun! Plus, I haven’t worn this wrap dress in donkey’s years–I think not since we went and saw Spring Awakening in San Francisco for my 20th birthday.
It feels a little formal for everyday wear, but it’s quite comfy (once I safety-pin the front so that the wrap doesn’t slide open) and with the sleeves and the pattern and all, it’s a little bit different than a lot of what I ordinarily wear, so I think I’ll try to work it into my wardrobe more than once every three years from now on.
