i'd rather be....

In my daydream I'm wearing this dress, and it's seventy-five degrees outside.  In reality, I spent the day outside in a slush blizzard, wet and cold (long story).  Now I'm home, wrapped up in leggings, a sweatshirt, two pairs of socks, and an electric heated blanket.  No way I'm going outside again until this thing is over!

Great dress! I really like the pattern, it's really simple and somehow vintage-like.

It's also really slushy here in Montreal. Boo!

Jenny, I left such a similar comment on Elly's Flickr photo of this dress! When she posted it I immediately envisioned myself wearing it while running down some narrow cobblestone street in a European city with the sun shining on my back. I feel your pain...the weather is atrocious in NYC today. I've been trudging around all day for school, and am so ready for the day to be over so I can change out of these wet socks and eat pizza and watch Jim and Pam have their baby. Stay warm!!!

That's a cute dress, plus it's a really subtle print I love it! As for the blizzard, I'm actually jealous because I love snow and wrapping myself with lots of blankets. Stay warm :)

I second that...this winter weather is NOT COOL...over it...and I wish I had an electric heated blanket...I just have the old ones passed down from my grandmother that don't have the cords to hook up to the outlets...but I find them kitschy cool regardless...stay warm tmrw!

That dress is adorable! Very Jane Austen-esque. Makes me want to braid my hair!

Are you braving the New York blizzard too? This city's weather is crazy today!

word, you da bitch yo.

(listening to girl talk as i get going this morning. so filthy. so, so filthy.)

i think girl talk is hilarious! i love it. joe can't stand it though.

ellybeth said...

i'm totally with you! its like an adhd kid on speed, but that's kind of what i love about it. joe, who doesn't love a biggie smalls/tiny dancer mashup, i mean, COME ON!

ellybeth said...

also, i'm pretty sure girl talk has made it onto "what white people like."
oh now, that girl talk guy makes fergie tolerable.

jenny gordy said...

i know! but when joe decides to arbitrarily hate something, there is no swaying him.

Oh I am too slow, the lovely dress is already sold out.

May I ask where I could find the background textile (or wallpaper?) you are standing at in these photos? I love those black flags!

Stay warm, the spring is not far away. We'll see.

po, these are not my photos or my dress. they're from elly fales/green olives design. but i do know the fabric is from ikea.

The print on the dress is so dainty.
