FINALLY got my turquoise dress back yesterday. Da Ellie, the dressmaker responsible for this creation promised to have it done in four days, but that was three weeks ago. But it was worth the wait – the dress is great. Anyway, after picking it up in the middle of the rain yesterday, I wore it over to a grocery store where several friends work. They could not stop laughing – here we are in our model poses:
Then it really started raining, so I was stuck there for an hour. Topics of discussion: Texas, the St. Patrick's Day party several of us went to, dancing (which involved them blasting "In the Club" over the sounds system), my hair ("Can I touch it?" said Gisele, third from left in the picture.), and needing to have another dress made for my birthday. If Da Ellie's going to make it, we probably should've ordered it a week ago.
