I totally missed this dress. Lisa sent me the auction link, but the auction ended, oh, hours ago. I don't know if I would have won it, but I might have bid. I might have bid A LOT. It's brown polka dots! They are my kryptonite, if by "kryptonite" you mean "substance that causes the spending of large amounts of money."
I've been on the West coast for days and days and days now, and I don't know how you Pacific Time Zone people DO it. I have been chasing the tail of the Central and Eastern Time Zones, huffing and puffing to keep up! (Sorry, I don't usually have much dealings with the laconic and self-reliant peoples of the Mountain Time Zone.) And forget about the UK; by the time I get back to THEM, they've been through an entire other news cycle, featuring their special UK-only ludicrously dressed celebrities. My pitiful little electronic mutterings are then just the rustling of old papers in a drafty corner.
Anyway, I've been out here doing various and sundry things, including doing some stuff for a really fun documentary (not ABOUT dresses, although I do WEAR a dress in it, about WORDS), seeing wonderful people (you know, the kind where you can go out to dinner and talk about television and books and Legos and the inherently comedic nature of the deviled egg and then you leave feeling like you've just built a little roadside shrine to happiness together? Those kind of people?), and answering email sent HOURS and HOURS earlier.
And none of those things were bidding on brown polka-dot dresses. I guess I'll live without it …
