the dress

A couple of months ago I wrote about a new dress I had bought. I got it for a cocktail party only to decide – after much deliberation – to go in more professional attire, but I loved the dress so much I knew I had to keep it. On Friday, I finally had the perfect occasion to wear the dress: a concert benefit for the animal shelter (which I helped to organize).

Many asked to see a photo of me wearing The Dress, so here it is!

I love the colors and the pattern, and the cut/style works well for my body shape, I think. I received numerous compliments about the dress at the concert, both from people I know (which was nice) and from complete strangers (which was really nice).

Poor Craig had to take about a dozen photos of me, and then asked why I wasn’t going to take a photo of him. So, here is my handsome husband in his nice suit and tie.

And, here is the best we could for a shot of us together (a self-portrait). Maybe we’ll set up the timer on the camera next time we’re all gussied up and get a real shot of us together!
