That's okay that things stayed as-is though, because aside from the fact that I fucking love the direction my life is headed sans crime scenes to investigate and/or raspberry galettes to bake, it leaves the spoils of my shopping efforts to me, me, ME!!!
I guess it's partly because a bright green dress with elephants on it that says "HE NEVER FORGETS" isn't really a dress that's party-ready. It's by far the most unique dress in my closet, and I believe that it's handmade, as there are no tags, no lining, and sturdy but messy stitching.
I guess I've been wrong about it being not "party ready" all these years, if this photo of a slightly tipsy Alie and I in the empty restroom of a soiree we somehow conned someone into inviting us to proves anything (hint: it doesn't).
