I’ve worn this dress in a previous post, it’s my 1970’s and/or school marm dress.
I should have taken a better picture of the actual design.

I am aware of the double chin, thank you very much. While experimenting with a new place to take the pics, I’ve also been inspired to try new “poses.” And here is photographic evidence of how truly awkward I am!
I like this location, the only problem is getting home before it’s completely dark. I don’t photograph well with a flash, my eyes get much too red. Also, the porch light is right on the edge of these pics, so there is always interference from that. Perhaps I can just get permission to leave work early for the next few months to take pictures?
I LOVE this collar. This was me at work all day. I just realized that I’m also following the oxblood trend! Let me explain how trends and I work together – we don’t. If I happen to be following any current trend, it’s totally a fluke. If I like something, I like it because of what it is, not because it’s a trend. If it happens to be a trend, ok, that’s fine, but I’m going to wear what I like when I want.
For example, I love all the animal prints that are so hot right now. And I will get some of them because I just like them. And I’ll keep wearing them after they aren’t trendy. I love it when an item or look that I adore is popular so I have more chances to adopt it and find it, but not so worried if it’s trendy or not. Most likely why I’ll never be a famous anything.
In fact, I’ll usually wear something that was trendy a few years ago just to prove a point. What that point might be, I’m not sure. But I’m happy with my choices.
It was just a fluke that this collar happened to be oxblood, which is all over the place lately. And I adore that color, so I’ll try snatch up all the cheapy items in this color as I can. And I’ll wear them FOR YEARS. Years, I tell you!
I call this pose “About to fall over.” You like?
