There is one good thing about the oppressive temperatures today: it will still be warm after the sun goes down. And that's GREAT because I have to wear a dress later. A friend of Hubsey's is shooting his music video tonight and we're going to be in it. (We're extras, along with about 40 other people this guy knows.) The song is called "Terrified!!!" so the video will be set up like a Halloween party, and everybody except the singer will be in costume. Specifically, a costume with a mask.
I'm going as a bird. Hubsey will be a soldier. Pictures to follow.

No, don't get him an iPad, just the cute "who ate my apple" decals for the back. There are also versions for the other Mac computers. $9. (Apparently my own father, who can't even figure out the contact list on a cell phone, is getting an iPad for his birthday at the end of the month. I'll let you know how THAT goes...)
What are you getting your dad? I'm getting mine a case for the forthcoming iPad. Sigh...

It's $40, so it's right on that border of being too expensive for an impulse buy, but not so expensive that I necessarily need an occasion to get it. I like it a lot, but do I need another dress? I already have like, 15 (although some of them are way old). Maybe Hubsey will see this and decide it would make a lovely anniversary present for me. Because that day is coming up in about 6 weeks.
It's been bookmarked on Etsy FOREVER now and I'm paranoid somebody else is going to snap it up, so maybe I'll just bite the bullet. But I don't know.
Does this happen to anybody else?

Rompers are adult onesies. I think the name "onesie" itself implies that you shouldn't wear one if you're more than a year old, but apparently Gap didn't get the memo. (Nor have a lot of other places, come to think of it.) I've never worn a romper and I don't know anyone who has, so if you're into them, or covet one, maybe hit the comments and explain the appeal. It doesn't matter if you're wearing one right now or if you wore an original 30 years ago, please help me understand. Am I missing out on an untapped segment of fashion glory? Is it awesome having to completely disrobe when you pee? I just... don't get it.
Now, about that jumper. The last time I wore overalls was the winter of 5th grade, so that would be 1995. There's even a picture of me wearing them with a lovely red turtleneck underneath (hooray for Christmas!). There are several important things to remember about that situation. One, I was ten years old. Two, it was the mid-90s. Three, they weren't skirt overalls.
Also note how boxy the model looks up there. Think of how unflattering that thing would be on the rest of us.
Does anybody still wear overalls? (If you're a farmer, it's fine, overalls were intended for you.) What about other henious 90s trends that are back, like flanel and belly shirts? If you can justify any of it, tell us how you made it work. I'm veeeeery curious.

For example, the Dewdrop Pendant is far and away my best-selling item, but it's not very flashy. These people might look at it and go, "Bob, you tool! This boring jewelry is worse than watching NCIS! You're fired!"
Clearly, I have no clue (especially if I'm imagining that the organizers speak like Donald Trump). Any help would be awesome.
Thanks in advance.
[Edit: Or if there are any pictures in my shop that would work, let me know so I can save myself a lot of fretting and photo-editing.]

Hubsey took it upon himself to tell me the weather forecast when I was still half asleep, so now I'm not dressed for the weather. My sluggish brain thought he said it was going to be foggy and rainy all day, but already, at 10, most of the fog is gone, there's 600% humidity, and it's going to be 85. I'm wearing jeans and boots. Great.
Let's look at some things I wish I had on.
Best item name I've seen lately: Soda Fountain Dress. It's lookin' a little sheer, but that's what a slip is for. (I'd be curious to see how many other 20-somethings actually wear slips. Anyone?) It's new on ModCloth today for $44.99.
Vintage navy and white polka dot dress, $28. I guess I'm on a belt kick today.
Yep, another belt. This dress makes me want to sit in the backyard and eat watermelon. Too bad we live in a condo without so much as a balcony. SIGH. (Oh yeah, the dress is $39.)
What adorable things are you wearing today? Distract me from my impending heat stroke.
