Comments/Compliments/Complaints: Lots of people, including me tried to figure out what was on the pocket of this dress. One of my clients figured out it's a quill/ink and a book.
Thursday. Hmm. Let's see. So I liked this dress when I bought it but eventually when I decided to wear it I realized that belting it was a pain in the ass since it had a huge weird pocket. I belted it three different times that day with three different belts and eventually left the belt off entirely. I thought I was being clever at one point by putting safety pins on either side of back waist area and then looping a fabric belt through the pins and pulling it tight, pulling the dress together in the back, then tying it off. It actually was pretty clever if I don't say so myself but the safety pins ended up ripping the fabric a bit and eventually the "belting" lost its purpose. Oh well. I guess I have a cool night shirt now.
I spent the day working and then Michael and I ate an early dinner. Later that evening we joined our friend Rica for drinks at 700. They have a blackberry chili margarita there that is just way too yummy. After drinks we got pizza and headed home.
