pockets and drapery

On June 27, 2013 by theseventhsphinx

This fabric is a bit too heavy for this style, keeps dragging down and is really too warm, but I like the shape and the draping of it anyway. Even if it is a bit reminiscent of a repurposed parachute. I wanted the khaki version but it wasn’t in my size, so figured would give the blue a chance. Keep forgetting about blue as an option, somehow, when it comes to clothes that aren’t jeans.

    Hi Megan,

    I was reading a post on Garance Dore’s blog and saw your comment (at the point of reading it was only one of two) and when you linked to the dress, I think I knew exactly which ASOS dress you were referring to (I was correct) so I clicked the link to check it out. I’m not sure if you’ll remember me, but I recognize you from many years ago at Tumblr River Ranch. I was a guest with my family ( I was probably 15 or 16 at the time). We exchanged mixed cd’s in the mail – you sent me Arcade Fire and I think I sent you one with god knows what on it almost a year later. It was so surprising to see a familiar face, I sometimes forget how small of a place the internet can be. Anyways, great blog and I hope you are doing well!

      Hi Madeline, I absolutely remember you! Thanks for your comment, and hope you are well, too! a small world indeed. That’s so great that you knew the exact dress. I spend too many hours on asos, but it really does reward patience and the willingness to browse.

      Isn’t Garance’s blog so great? She is my blog role model :)
