okay, so here is winner numero dos.
it’s a pink gingham ann taylor LOFT. seems brand new.
it’s quite dignified
nicely tailored. i like where the waist sits.

i feel both ladylike and comfortable. perfect for a picnic.

i made homemade chicken soup just now. it’s on the stove.

so domestic of me, right?

this is the best one. don’t you think it would be perfs for SF/Haight Street? yes, yes it would. very pucci. unfortch it was made in china, but at least i bought it second-hand.

computers are endlessly annoying.

yeah, so i hope you enjoyed this installment of the never-ending saga of carrie-trying-on-dresses.
(to be cont’d)
(at a later date… out of photos for now)

i really need a better camera. or i just need to stop using my phone to take pics. they are just so grainy and faded and bleh. not fair. why??? it’s not my fault!
BUT NO! i was just looking back at my last few posts and the photos are of very lame quality. fer seers.

BUT! i am not in the mood to complain! imagine that!
it’s true!

i just went to the gym this morning, first thing. worked out while listening to my pandora station and reading silly subtitles on the morning news television screens.

trying out medium size because the full size pics show up ridiculously huge on this blog. you can click to enlarge

for YOU!

this dress was too open armpit-y
i liked the way my boobs looked in it, tho.
and it had one of those bubble skirts that sort of tucks under.

i was at the doctor because i have an eye infucktion. hahahaha
no but it’s an allergic reaction, apparently.

sand2 392
i’m a special snowflake.
this dress would be fabulous if i were a size smaller or it were a size bigger. too bad, so sad. i love the look, tho. it’s just the top part that’s tight. maybe i could stretch it out. nah. i’m not gonna buy things unless i am totally certain. sometimes things look better in pics but don’t work when you are actually wearing it/them.

and this is my hair air-dried.

i like this trick of blurring out my face! it hides the no-makeup, eye allergy, bad lighting! yay!

sand2 408
this dress was really cute but i didn’t buy it… maybe because the bottom hem was all crooked but that probably could be fixed by a good ironing but i just have a feeling it would always become annoyingly wrinkled at the hem and have to be ironed. i could only choose three dresses. first i am showing you all the ones i did not choose.
reminiscing. i love trying on dresses at the thrift store.

this dress would be best as a house dress because it makes me feel fat.

i went to the gym first thing this morning tho… so, i feel a little less hopeless about being forty.

this is what i wore to the doctor yesterday morning.
i took it off as soon as i got home because it was too hot to wear jeans.

two of the dresses were so bad, i’m not going to show them to you. you’d thank me not to…. :-)

alright folks. well, that’s that, i guess.
in my next post i will be showing the WINNER dresses. the lucky dresses that made the cut. they’re cute and fun and fit very flatteringly. yay!

nothing but nice

this dress was made in hawaii.

today i tried to make my hair more red/less brown and it is still mostly brown. it’s just so much darker than my real hair color.

there is a pool right outside my window and i never go in it.
i think it’s because i’m just depressed?
i don’t know.
it seems i am not a very joyful person.
debbie downer, for sure.

i have some library books that i checked out and never read and now they are overdue and i don’t want to return them. that is something i’ve done for my entire library book career.

i want this one too, so cute. normally i would not wear this out in public, tho. i’m a scaredy cat. too shy and demure.

sand2 1685
it’s really not that slutty. probably it is gone by now. i shouldn’t be spending money anyway.

sand2 1677
i came very close to buying this then decided to eliminate one item and it was this one.
oh well, there will be other times and other dresses

sand2 1675
cool hippy dress. easy and breezy.

sand2 1623
i stayed home from work today because i wasn’t feeling well.
(these pics are not from today, today i slept and sat on the couch all day, feeling yuk)
