I hate doing laundry. Mainly because it means I have to go to the laundromat. I miss the days of in house washing machines and dryers - I left those in Florida with central air and swimming pools, boo. I'm a spoiled little brat and Bobby always does my laundry. When he doesn't get around to it, I just make new clothes! That's what I did for this outfit; I had nothing to wear, so I made a dress. When my clothes no longer fit into the hamper and are strewn about the floor, you know it's time for me to suck it up and do laundry. The best/worst part about all of this is that I made the dress that morning, and was late because I spent more time on it than I thought I would. I messed up the bodice and had to hack off an inch and a half, because I didn't have time to start over. It ended up being a less flattering, baby doll style. But you know, at least I wasn't naked.
I look miserable in that last picture because I was in a horrible mood and was running super late for the Seychelles preview. I'm always running late. Once I got there, I had a great time. I met some really awesome gals and gents, oohed and ahhed over all of the beautiful new designs and even got my nails done. It was all fine and good until I got on the train and realized that I had eyeliner all under my eyes and my lipstick was just a line around my lips. Word to the wise: don't ever try out new makeup products when you are going out. Try them out at home first and stick to your staples when in doubt! I looked like a clown. Lesson learned!
