I told you that I lost my mind. See Monday’s entry.
In mid-July, I saw a photo of one of my favorite bloggers wearing a red damask dress with a denim jacket and an oversized floral fabric brooch and thought, “me want” — which was enough to send me on an Internet scavenger hunt. Here is the photo that set me off.
Perhaps I should have stopped to ask, “Should I really wear a dress that looks like a sofa?” But I didn’t. As I am sure you can understand, sometimes the journey overtakes the destination.
Considering that my model’s dress is several years old and no longer in circulation, I think I did a great job finding a convincing facsimile.
I stopped after finding the dress. The brooch can wait.
These photos are not quite close enough to show the details of the fabric. The baroque design is superimposed on a graph paper background. It’s complex and intriguing. Try clicking on this photo to see.
Perhaps some of you are thinking, “She doesn’t look like a sofa. She looks like Cruella Deville.”
It’s not literally Cruella, but I hear you. It’s all the spiky angles.
Some of you have recently asked about this versatile bag. I’ve had it a long time and figured it was old news. Here are a few photos that provide a better view.
Have a fantastic weekend!
