It makes me very happy, this dress. The botton reminds me of a balloon, and the sleeves look Victorian! (in my historical-obsessed mind, at least)
Pictures! Ignore my cluttered room!
Tada! I love it, even though it is very heavy. More so to hold though, not to wear.
(I had no idea my legs looked that long...hmm.)
Also, kittens, I made a discovery while I was shopping yesterday! I went into Bootlegger's and as I was walking by this large mirror in the center of the store, I stopped and stared at the reflection thinking 'now, I'm sure my legs are not actually that thin..hmm'
I think walked up to the mirror, and called over my father. We then realized that the mirror had a curve to it, making it appear as though you are actually thinner than you are!
"Objects in mirror are wider than they appear?" I think so.
Very devious store-owners...very very devious.
Also, also to Sasha: I want to come 'home' again soon! I don't know when I can though, which is very terrible.
I think I need to stop wanting things...you know? We live in a society that seems to thrive off of ownership of things, be those things clothing, property, cars, gadgets, ect, and I don't think it's healthy for our own selves, or our pocketbooks. I have to admit that I am just like most of our society...when I see something pretty that I think I 'need', I have to either buy it or run away screaming to supress the urge. And I really dislike that! I know I don't need to own all the things I do to be happy, and I resolve to try a darn lot harder to stop 'wanting' things. Like that dress, though I had been meaning to get one for the Winter formal. I shall try not to carry money! I think these thoughts have always been floating around at the back of my mind, but they have recently been brought forward by a book called 'The Dispossessed'. I must read it a few more times~ haha
