I.O.U.s - Dress Edition, vol. 1

More than a month after the launch of this wacky fashionlog, I'm still posting daily (work week) outfits. Most mornings I have a stern conversation with myself that goes something like this:

Me: "Ooo...I really want to wear that sweater."
Myself:
"Nope, sorry. You already blogged about that one. Pick something else."
Me: "But it's so cute."
Myself:
"Hello?! How embarrassing to post yourself wearing the same outfit
again!"
Me:
"This is so unfair. I have nothing to wear."

Myself:
"I know, but this was your idea in the first place."

Me: "I'm so dumb. I'll never have another original thought."
I pick something else, which is good and bad -- on the one hand I'm composing my outfits with more imagination and thought, but I hate to see Myself win every time.

Anyway, a couple weeks ago I promised a picture of my new Christmas skirt. If I had to choose a favorite category of my closet, it would definitely be my dresses (/skirts). I really have cute dresses. In fact, I'd be happy wearing nothing but dresses. (And jeans. I can't live without jeans. Maybe even dresses and jeans together - gasp).


Without further exposition, I present,
