Sometimes you really like your outfit, but after a long day of busy indoor things and gloomy, dark, cold, precipitating weather, the only time you have to take any photos is 7pm and your only hope is some lamps and a camera flash- which then casts weird shadows on your wall. PARTY.

This dress is WEIRD. really weird. It's like nothing else I own: It fits weird, it's a weird material, it's more slinky than any of my other dresses- but I love it. I really like the long sleeves and swooshy neckline, and overall texture. Of course I'd also love if it fit more slouchy/ A-line and didn't suddenly awkwardly get tight around my butt, but that's what layers are for I guess. Also, time to bust out my holiday sparkle splendour tights! I look forward to december and january to wear these- it seems like the most appropriate time. This necklace is a special reminder to me of the desert and southern utah and makes me homesick for these colours every time I wear it, which isn't nearly enough. Also it kind of looks like the Irish flag, so, ahoy to that too.
