This dress seemed too tight & I wasn't sure I was going to wear it beyond the farmers' market...but Kate liked it...& really...if I get positive feedback from David or makes me look at a dress in a new light. It's important to have people you trust & whose opinions you value. I ended up feeling really sexy in this dress & decided it wasn't too tight, but it was too short. If I can't wear a dress with tights & feel's too short...luckily, there's leggings...which are not pants, but they offer enough cover that I won't be flashing anyone against their will. This dress was soooo soft & even though the material was thin, it didn't feel cheap & you couldn't see through it. Oh, & the colors...the colors were splendid & I adore stripes. Fat chicks should wear stripes. 
I liked this dress better without the cardigan...or perhaps I needed a print instead of a solid. I will often wear cardigans to hide a gapping neckline...but this neckline stayed put. 
Do these stripes make my butt look big?  
I like the way the stripes define my shape...going in & out.
My makeup with this outfit included...Urban Decay eyeliner in Mildew; Anastasia eyeshadow in Edge, Venetian Red, Vermeer, & Primavera; NYX Liquid Suede in Bella & Biker Babe; & Greenwich Green nail polish by OPI. 
I wore this dress on three different days. Rye likes to climb on my lap, isn't he adorable?! Farmer's market with makes me happy that there are always bands. After market, we went to The Madison Chocolate Co. looking for 100% chocolate for David's birthday...I had given him a few bars in his stocking at Christmas & he thoroughly enjoyed them. I'm including a photo of their doors because this is what I would like to do in our bathroom...sliding barn doors...but with old pocket doors instead. After dropping Kate off at her tempartment on the west side...I went into Vinnie's to check out their cardigans...& came home with two that look like Easter eggs...check out the original price on that striped one! After several years of admiring & using the Mother Fools graffiti wall for photos...I finally caught them in the act of painting one. 
After my last visit to Torrid to pick up a sale order...I ordered the leggings I saw there that I liked...& four other pair. So, I had to go to Torrid again to pick up *that* order...& they were having a sale on 1, get 2 free! I limited myself to three dresses...but I tried a bunch on. 
This green velvet maxi was my favorite. I made this salad for was so simple & quick...& tasty...salmon salad with bell peppers, onions, & dill...served atop spinach & pea shoots from farmers' market...with some Meyer lemons from David's grandma's tree & parmesan crisps. 
A pretty pretty from Wendy...that always makes it a good mail day. Also, a super sale order of dresses from City Chic. I collect dresses I never get around to wearing.
