The Slowest of Pokes
Guys- I am the worst at getting around to things, remembering to do things, and meeting deadlines. This dress? I got it in August as my chictopia style icon prize and I haven't gotten around to wearing and posting it until now. While part of that admittedly had to do with bouncing around three different states in the past three months and not always having access to my full closet, it's still embarrassingly late and true to my slowpoke form.
The fabric isn't quite what I was expecting- I thought it was going to be a contrasting wool tartan- which is how it looked in the product photo- it's actually a kind of gaudy 90's looking synthetic something, but from far away, it still looks like a tamer plaid. I guess I can't complain if it ends up photographing alright- despite the bait and switch. We just had a big rainstorm yesterday, so a bunch of leaves up and died and fell all over the ground straight away without even changing colour. It was kind of fun to wake up to so many leaves on the ground, but also kind of sad to miss out on the colourful stage. Hopefully the survivors will put on a good show this year.

And a big thank you to Ryan, who regularly takes photos for me so I don't have to run around alone with our tripod in crowded city parks, and who puts up with my picky ideas of how the photos should look, even if I can't articulate it well enough. Thanks for all your help, sonny jim.
