Did anyone else catch the Miss Universe Pagent last night (don’t judge; I get 3 channels)? And, if so, did you feel rather, oh, I don’t know, blah in your clothes today? Those women really raised the bar with their national costumes, and I’m worried we’re not living up to the challenge. I mean, I’m not wearing wheat.
Nor did I deck myself out in Ugg boots, a monokini and sheepskin bolero (well, not until fall, anyway).
I did come this close to wearing a waterfall on one arm, but you know how it goes. You put a waterfall on one arm, next thing you know the other arm is jealous and you have to give it a tidal pool. Then the first arm gets upset that the second got invertebrates and the next thing you know, it’s Atlantic vs. Pacific and you, my friend, are Cape Horn.
So, in the end, I went with the denim shirt dress. However, I’m not disappointed. This is one awesome dress and the layering possibilities are endless. Or, at least 6, which is how many I’ve come up with so far.
You know what else did not disappoint me? This.
But, really, does that surprise anyone?
P.S. Is anyone else disappointed that Miss Alpha Centauri never seems to win Miss Universe?
P.P.S. What would your national/regional/state/province/backyard costume be? I’ve lived a lot of places but the one constant? Mosquitoes.
P.P.P.S. Okay, one more. Yes, it’s from 2009, but it’s so worth it!
