by Erin on February 22, 2010

So, quickly:

here's my dress from the 2010 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. I broke 500 for the first time!

Thanks to Jan for taking the picture (on my cell phone).

Also: this is one of those BurdaStyle Heidi dresses. I'll post a better picture of it later in the week.

Also: the fabric is from Spoonflower. I'll make it available this week too.

Also: yes, those are hot pink patent penny loafers.

Also: that's it.

I really admire your style. Most people are completely incapable of pulling off the slightly funky or quirky things you often work into your wardrobe, but you always look fantastic. I especially love this outfit on you :)

Thats about 900 times cooler than a crossword print tote bag (which Im sure was ubiquitous at that particular convention!)

You always rock the crossword fabric – loved the pink accents, too! Glad I could help your blogging efforts by taking the photo – I look forward to checking regularly to see what neat dress you discover next! See you next year!

Congrats on breaking 500! I think I only glimpsed you passing by once during the weekend, didnt get to say hi, and didnt get to see the dress in person, so Im glad theres a picture. (Im also glad your outfit did not involve penguins.)Im just noting that the numbering of the squares on the fabric is somewhat odd :-)

Great dress! And I agree with Lorene – would love to see more photos of this dress, without the cardigan.

This is the best crossword dress Ive ever seen! And all the others have been yours, come to think of it. Fantastic fabric! Excellent scale! That dress alone makes up my entire smile ration for the day. If not the week. Thanks for sharing!

Erin you look great! I seen you in another dress like this one; you were standing in a lobby (perhaps a hotel lobby) with black pennyloafers and you had your hands in your pockets. You look great!
