Just a really quick post. Today was truly a fantastic day: I was really productive and got lots of pages written for my thesis, I got to catch up with a really good friend of mine whom I've missed so much, and I got to have a marvelous dinner with some awesome people. Tonight called for a celebration, so I put on my party face and my Little House of the Prairie dress. I call it that because it just looks so... pastoral. It makes me feel like Henry VI sitting atop a hill looking at the shepherds below tending their sheep, musing about the sweet and simple pleasures of life. (Henry VI III)
This is probably one of my favorite dresses. I can wear it in any weather and pair it with a million things. It's also really really comfy and flatters me, I think. However, there's another reason I wore this dress... I knew we'd be eating at a Chinese restaurant known for their authentic dishes and large portions. The skirt is wide, but not too baggy, and hides every morsel of sin. I ate so much that when I got home I was sure I gained at least 2 lbs.
