11 December 2006

Shameless vanity post On December 2nd, my company had its annual Christmas dinner dance. I'm posting pictures of me taken that night not because I think I look good, but because I made my dress and am rather proud of the way it turned out;-) There are other photos taken that night I so wish I could post, including some of my department's diva of a admin assistant dancing salsa with the creepiest of our several creepy VPS, and some of a couple who came in perfectly acceptable attire but then changed after dinner into a sort of Kevin Federline and Britney Spears version of Santa and Mrs. Claus outfits. But I don't dare. Anyway it was a lovely evening and it was such a relief to feel a world away from all the real estate drama and moving crap. I entirely forgot that I'd spent the morning scrubbing floors at my new place.
That dress is stunning Orange Swan.

Cool dress.

I'm guessing it was a formal party. Our annual one can get weird. Pretty much everybody shows up in what they wore to work, but last year a lot of people decked themselves out as if it were the social event of the season, making the combination of glitz and grunge pretty jarring.

also "creepy VP" is fun to say.

It is a formal event. It's held at a nice hotel downtown, and although the men just wear suits the women dress to the teeth. Although so many, many women come in basic black dresses.

I've taken (film) pictures of my house and will be posting within the next few weeks.

Wow! I'm impressed! And you look fabulous!

That is one good-looking dress.

The cool thing about it is that I can wear the satin underdress just by itself and it looks like a completely different outfit. I really hope I get a chance to wear it again soon.

Difficult to tell whether you are flattering the dress or vice versa. Best to say it is a mutually beneficial relationship.

Awesome. As someone who has difficulty merely using clothes at the best of times, let alone creating them, this is really impressive.

Dizzy Dean once said "It ain't bragging if you can back it up."

Nice dress, OS. And you can back it up.

Very nice dress, and it really suits you. Such a great choice of color, too! You've got some talent!

Wow - You made that? with the overlay? Which also means you chose colors and fabrics. Yowsa!!! Great color on you and great dress - you must've bowled over several unsuspecting party-goers.

Nice : )
Hope this isn't a slam to you as I like her, but you look like Geena Davis could be your sister.

Mine, for instance. ;- )

A nice dress in that it really doesn't reveal as much as a guy thinks it does at first glance (does that make sense?)

It looks very nice on you.
