This is a fantastic outfit for gorging yourself silly. The dress is nice and loose, while the belt both cinches the said looseness and is also made of stretchy things, which helps when you're eating pounds of mocha almond toffee and chocolate truffles and your stomach is more than likely expanding. The friggin' adorable shoes also distract the people around you from seeing how many tiny pieces of bread you have snuck and are still sneaking.

True story, all of it. I blame the caterers, not myself.

sparkly trails

I picked up this vintage sequined pencil skirt for $5 a few weeks ago and I wish I could wear it everywhere. I would wear it grocery shopping and doing laundry and while sleeping. I leave a Hansel-and-Gretel-y trail of sequins wherever I walk, but I don't think that's a problem. It could be worse.

my screenplay


(A frustrated blogger, named Blogger, bids on a dress during her first encounter with eBay. A mysterious fellow bidder who we will call Girl-I-Hate is out to get the blogger.)

Blogger checks back on eBay a few days later, only to find that her dress has been outbid by Girl-I-Hate. Blogger will not stand for this. Promptly, she adds a dollar to the bid and exits the browser with pride.

On the final day of the auction, Blogger looks back on eBay to find Girl-I-Hate is at it again, as desperate for this dress as she is. Three hours left to the auction, Blogger outbids Girl-I-Hate, but as she confirms her bid, she sees that Girl-I-Hate outbid her in a mere few seconds. The process continues, a vicious battle between 2 internet anonymouses.

Blogger's heart speeds up as a few minutes are left until the end of the auction. Her family gathers around her, cheering her on and giving her the confidence to beat Girl-I-Hate.

Blogger sneakily finds the quick-bid button, sure that Girl-I-Hate is too dumb to figure that one out. Blogger was right.

Seconds tick by, Blogger still outbidding Girl-I-Hate. What will the outcome be?

4, 3, 2 seconds left. Blogger's heart is exploding out of her head.

But it left her with this beautiful dress.

And to Girl-I-Hate: I don't really hate you. I was just really mad at you.

Some pictures to fill up this pathetic blog until I get an outfit post up tomorrow (I swear.) From Yom Kippur and my sister's birthday party yesterday, featuring the cutest jelly bean cake in the world that I couldn't stop looking at.

See you guys tomorrow. Really.
