Dress: Gift — Blazer: Swap (Stoosh) — Oxfords: Payless — Bracelet: Thrifted — Necklace: Gift from Katie!
Oh, look, it’s the return of Mia’s Green Dress! This dress made a decent showing last summer (partially due to it being one of my 30 for 30 garments), and now it’s back! From outer space! It’s still a little hard to wear because of the strap/boob situation, but this time I made it into a pseudo-racerback with the help of a safety pin, and covered the exposed bra parts with my trusty gray blazer. (I had actually originally intended to wear it with a slightly more masculine vest, but it was Bra City and I just couldn’t. I’ll make it work some other time.)
Anyway, the real star of this outfit is the necklace, another present from the lovely Katie. It’s so big and eye-catching. JUST LIKE ME! (What, Mia? What?)
Hmm, anyway. I have been thinking about my dad a lot recently, for various reasons, and of course it’s now exacerbated by Father’s Day. I know that not everybody has their dad in their life, whether through choice or not, but I hope that everybody has a survivable Father’s Day. And if it’s a good or great one, even better! I’ll have to give Daddio a call and see how he’s doing, and tell him some things I remember from being little, like the big soft rocking chair we would sit together in when I was sad, or how he’d take my brother and me to Fry’s Electronics or WeirdStuff (a used electronics store in Sunnyvale) and show us stuff and let us buy computer games, or how he’d tell me to give myself a break when I was frustrated by my own limitations. (I still am, and he still does.)
