here), but I've never actually found an occasion to wear it. I considered it for a wedding, but it felt too fancy for the afternoon ceremony. There's just something wrong about wearing red satin in the daytime, if you ask me! But I got over it today and just wore the darn dress. To what fabulous event, you may ask? After all my worries about it being too formal for various things, I ended up wearing it to eat dinner in a cafeteria-style fried chicken joint. And I only got a little bit of grease on the skirt! Sometimes you have to just live a little and wear a red satin dress to eat friend chicken, right?
We did go out to a Broadway play afterward, so that was a more befitting setting for the dress. (We saw Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and it was awesome.) Thanks to all your fabulous tips on yesterday's post, I was very happy with my hair. I gave it a little hot-roller action and that did the job.
Other than that, I've been working away on my Lady Grey muslin, and am planning lots of sew-along posts for you. Hope you're having a fab weekend!
