Day 230: Send in the Clowns Dress
Day 228: Bellhop Dress

South Carolina doesn’t seem like a likely habitat for this wool dress, now does it?

It just doesn't feel right!

First, I took care of that super unflattering mid-calf length skirt!

Chop!

Now, let’s address one of my biggest pet peeves.ย  I absolutely hate clothing that does that weird fake layering thing.ย  As if someone would see this dress and really think you just happened to be wearing an identically hued sweater under it.ย  Really.ย  It’s as if the designer (I use that word lightly) thinks we’re all idiots who are incapable of doing our own layering (Plus those wool sleeves were really itchy!)!

Eff that!

And just like that, my new dress was ready to go…at 3am.ย ย  :/

I hopped in my car and drove to Charleston to catch my very early flight…

While waiting for my flight, I hammered out the day’s blog…
