I don't wear black very often on my blog, which is sort of funny, since I essentially lived in black clothes not too long ago. When you're a theatre student, wearing black is a requirement for a lot of classes, but since graduating from college, I wear it far less often than I used to. Still, it's nice go back to black every once and a while, and who doesn't love a good LBD? I only own a couple of black dresses, and this one is probably the most formal one I have. I wore this Lindy Bop dress back in June when I sang with my dad's band during the Rochester Jazz Festival, but hadn't worn it since then. I wasn't totally in love with it the first time I wore it, honestly, but it's grown on me a lot since then -- and looks about a million times better with a petticoat! This would be good cocktail party attire... but since I don't often frequent those, I think it'd be a cute New Year's Eve outfit, too.
I've been working a ton this week, and my parents have been away on vacation, so I've had the house to myself. I've spent lots of quality time with Pumpkin (who has been extra snuggly), and the time alone has actually been very nice. I've thought many times about whether I'd want to live alone if I moved, and this has been a good test for that on a small scale. Oh, and my best friend Wayne is finally home from the hospital and on the mend. So, good news all around.
