So it appears that I have one dress that Victor doesn't hate, and this, my friends, is that dress. Now, you may wonder, which criteria does this dress meet, to warrant such praise? I sure wondered, so I asked him. "Well, it looks normal, doesn't it," was the replay I got. "Not so colourful." He said that last bit as though "colourful" was another word for "fart". Victor, you see, dresses in sensible, blokey colours. Even patterns like stripes can be too girly for him - stripes! And I wear a lot of stripes, and a lot of coulour. But, this dress soothes his tortured eyeballs.
Sadly for Victor, I don't know how long this dress is going to live - it's made from some unholy polyester/viscose mix and it's already changed shape a little after hand-washing it once. Just a little, but still. Yup, these pictures were taken on its maiden voyage. It's a sale purchase from this past winter, so technically it's new-to-me, I guess - though I don't think Madewell carries this style of dress anymore. I'm sad I didn't get a proper picture of the sleeves, they're really cute and fluttery. Oh well, I'm sure I'll get a few more wears and photos of it before this dress disintegrates!
Anyway - is this the cuddliest street art you've ever seen or what? It's just round the corner from where we live, so we walk past it all the time. It's funny how this dress has just a few flowers on it that match the yellow ball of yarn. Makes it looked like I planned the whole thing - I didn't. This wall used to get new graffitti all the time, but the cat's been there for months now. I'm hoping everyone in the local street art scene comes to a gentlemens' agreement that it's too cute to paint over, because we can't be the only ones who've grown fond of this thing!
