Can we just stop and marvel at the fact that I wore a dress….
Ok, carrying on…
Tuesday: This is the YY pin-stripe dress part of the 3 piece suit I bought. During the morning hours I wore the jacket, but took it off once I got to work and was warm enough throughout the day that I didn’t need it. Not many took much notice of my suit from Monday, but oh-boy, they definitely took note of the dress. I was stopped by so many people I was shocked. Most of them had the same sort of comments: they liked the dress and it was weird/unique/strange. A coworker asked about the pocket on the back, which he noted was very impractical. The intern next to him said it was stylish and I said that’s just how the designer makes his clothes – weird. I mentioned a skirt I had I could wear three ways. When I mentioned I could technically wear the dress the other way around with the pocket in front, he looked at me with that: Does Not Compute expression. Mind you, he’s an engineer.
I loved wearing the dress, which really surprised me. It was incredibly easy to move around in and I could definitely see myself wearing it many more times. This shocked me more than anything else. It also helps that the dress is basically a zipped up bath towel in wool. The flap on the right side in the first photo is where the zipper is and I can literally zip the entire dress apart so it’s just one huge rectangle of fabric with straps buttoned on. It takes a little effort to get the straps straight when putting it on, but takes .02 seconds to take off.
Wednesday: nothing new to report here. Investors are gone, boss is at a conference and I’m panicking like crazy because prototypes for my client are running late and their lab with the parts is in two weeks. NO PRESSURE AT ALL!!!!
