I'm ready!

Live from Journals Café chat room #2!

Turns out I had an actual dress to wear, and I actually wore it!  Kate loaned me the necklace to go with it.  Here's another look:

But this afternoon I went shopping anyway:

 

I  wanted this one, but it was too long and the wrong size.  Drat!  Maybe if I lose weight and wear my boots, and if it goes on sale, and if nobody else buys it...!

LATER:

I won iwoniwon!  And so did Vince.  Yay!

Oh that dress is stunning.  Too bad it was too long.  But you certainly look smashing.

Congratulations on your ViVi!!  We can console each other on the loss of the single entry/series category.  Then plot revenge.  :D
