Wednesday April 22nd - Stripey

While most people are grinning their faces off to have summer around in their lives again, I'm as sulky as ever. The weather's warmer, but much too warm as usual for Southern California. There must simply be a place out there where perfect weather doesn't have to come at the price of something else. Yesterday, Wednesday was a fairly nice day. The sun was out and shining, but the chill winds kept you on your toes.

So I haven't worn this dress...well...ever. It has been decomposing in my closet since the day I bought it, and because I'm such a bug of the closet variety, I brought it out to try out. It was dreadfully long for my standards, so a bit of belt-play really helped with that. I ended up looking very nautical. Of course, the comfort was compromised a bit as all belts do with me, but it was still amazing to be in.









Dress - Thrifted
Sweater - Vintage, No Relation Vintage
