Can anyone tell me? Preferably someone in the Central or Eastern time zones? I am most impressively jetlagged, the kind of jetlagged that I most associate with people who are abducted in spy movies. I was mildly surprised to wake up this morning in a hotel room, and not, in fact, duct-taped to an aluminum chair.
However, I am aware enough of my surroundings to find and admire this pattern:
I'm intrigued by the hem ruffle lately, especially the half-hem ruffle. Just enough, you know, and no more. An admirable sufficiency. I think I'd leave the bows off this one … unless I could make them out of wired ribbon so that I'd have a handy lockpick/garotte in the unlikely eventuality that I ever DID wake up duct-taped to an aluminum chair.
Click on the image to visit the auction listing (from Dama Fortuna Vintage). It's a BuyItNow, though, so don't be surprised if it's already gone when you get to it. (I'm not buying it — in my jetlagged state I shouldn't be trusted with the purchase of so much as a pair of socks.)
A couple of folks have emailed me about their tape measures: some went out before I went to Tokyo/Taipei … the rest will be mailed on Thursday, when I am finally home. If you don't have yours by now, you're probably in the Thursday cohort, unless you are Not in the U.S. (although I tried to mail the international ones first as they are probably going to take the longest in transit).
Thursday … that's tomorrow, right? I hope so. I'd hate to misplace a Wednesday, they're so hard to come by …
